You’ve Got Choices Baby!

You have a choice, an option, an opportunity…to live each moment in a way that is meaningful to you; to spend your days doing the things that you want to. In fact, you probably have more options than you even realize.

We are all guilty for saying things such as:

  • “I just don’t have any time”, but this excuse is invalid. We all have time, 24 hours in each day in fact. How you use your 24 hours is what matters. If something is important enough to you then you can choose to make adjustments in your day to fit that in.  You have a choice.
  • “I had to call so-and-so back” or “I had to do this…“. Well no, you chose to call that person back or to spend your time doing the things you did. Technically, you did have a choice to do it or not. You have a choice and a say in your life.
  • “I wish I was more ___.” This may be “organized”, “skinny”, “outgoing” etc. Did you know that you can choose the person that you want to be moving forward? You don’t have to operate the same way that you have previously. You are not defined or bound by your past and you can decide what is important to you and who you are going to be in your life from here on in. Every day is a completely new adventure and a blank slate. You have a choice.

By saying things like “I had to…” or “I would love to, but…” or “I wish I was more….” without doing anything about them, you are taking power away from yourself. Not being empowered in your own life is deflating and leaves us feeling stuck.

So help yourself get unstuck by realizing that you can choose how you spend your time, who you are and where you are going. You have choices in every situation in life and you can choose how you live your life from this point forward!

You may ask “but how do I really do that?”. Here’s how:

  • Get really clear on where you want to go.
    • If you don’t have a clear idea of where you are going, you will never get there!
    • Just like you must understand the direction to point your car in to drive to the mall or to get home, you also need to understand the direction to point yourself towards to get where you want to go in life.
  • Take consistent and deliberate steps in that direction on a regular basis.

Here’s why working with a life coach can be so helpful. Not only can a coach help you to get super-clear on where you want to go, but can also help you to consistently take those steps to build the new habits that you require to be the person you want to be and live the life you want to live!

The studies that I have seen say that it takes anywhere from 21 – 66 days to form a new habit. Changing your life is completely do-able and with a bit of time and effort you can have a life that you love living!

You only get one life, so why not live it like you mean it?
