Life is nothing more than an unending flow of choices. Everything we are in this moment has been created by our choices. Every second we are making choices (whether we are conscious about it or not) about what we think about ourselves and others, what food to eat, whether to exercise or not.
We even make choices about whether or not we are going to take those actions which will take us to the fulfillment of our goals. These choices are probably the most important ones we have to face, and we all, at one time or another, have chosen not to take action in the right direction. Rather we have made choices of procrastination, laziness, indifference, fear, insecurity, etc…and then wonder why our lives never change, but rather keep going round in circles.
One of the worst things we can do is to spend lengthy amounts of time thinking about what direction to head in, or which action to take. While it is good to briefly think about our choices, there comes a moment when thought becomes an excuse for indecision, and this is what must be avoided. You must simply chose and move forward, because even if you know the direction in which you want to go, you will never fully know what lies ahead. The important thing is to move in the direction of your choice and face all of the obstacles and challenges that come your way, knowing that all paths have their own set of experiences – nobody avoids challenges, opposition, the facing of fear. Successful people are the ones who not only set off in the direction of their choice, but stay on their course when the difficulties of life come their way; they never give up!
So, don’t get caught up in the trap of “which choice do I need to make, what direction do I need to head in”, you know, deep down, what is right for you. Proceed with confidence, knowing what you are wanting from life, knowing that you can surmount all of the challenges you will face, and knowing you will get to your to the realization of your goals and dreams!
As overused as it may be, the expression, “Life is a journey” rings true. So if you are stuck in indecision, take action and make a choice today; move forward in your choice of direction!
Be well and peaceful everybody,
