“I believe the choice to be excellent begins with
aligning your thoughts and words with the intention
to require more from yourself.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

Making options is probably the most stressful thing that we do as humans…

Or perhaps more accurately

The stressful thing we do is to choose avoidance when we don’t like what choices we’re facing…

This is what creates the stress

It doesn’t have to be that way though…

Especially if you don’t make yourself solely responsible for the outcome of all the things that you don’t like about your life

Basically we work like this…

When we don’t like the result of our choices

We blame ourselves and lose confidence in our ability to make choices in the first place…

None of us can predict the outcome of every choice we make

Including how others will or won’t respond to the things we choose for ourselves…

And to think that we can

Need to…

Or should is the enemy that so often prevents the feeling of living with purpose

What we can do, however…

When we are fearful about making a choice

Is turn towards it…

Rather than away from it

Get uncomfortable for all of five minutes (that’s literally the length of time of actual discomfort at most)…

And decide in your mind to see how it feels before you act on it
