The Power of Choice

Are you trapped in a stuck mindset? Do you get caught up in circumstances and feel like you don’t have choices? You have more power to choose than you may realize. In the day to day details and distractions of life it’s easy to lose perspective on the power of choice.

Here are two powerful choices you can make:

  • Choose Your Response – Life happens. It’s a fact that there are situations and circumstances that are less than ideal. While we don’t control what happens to us, we can always choose to control how we respond. As Holocaust survivor, psychiatrist and author Victor Frankl said, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
  • Choose Your Priorities – When’s the last time you evaluated your priorities? Are you focused on what matters most to you? The fastest way to understand what you value is to look at your calendar. How do you spend your time? While money is a resource that can expand or contract, time is a resource that we all have in equal amounts. How you spend it shows what really matters to you. If you are not investing your time where it matters most – make new choices in how you schedule your life. You are the ultimate decision maker about who gets your time. Say no more often and set yourself free!

Don’t surrender your power of choice to the tyranny of the urgent, the drone of daily routines or the demands of others. Every moment you have a chance to make different choices. Choose wisely. As Albert Camus said, “life is a sum of all your choices.”
