I am where I am because of the choices I've made.
Yes, this is a bold statement, but it's true.
Think about it, how often do we use the phrases, "I had to" or "She/He made me" when explaining why we did or did not do something. These words expose us because we believe that we are not actively involved in our choices. Regardless of the situation or surroundings, we need to understand that we are the ones in charge of the choices we make. [Blind Spot]
Good or bad, I believe my life is a result of my choices.
Examples of your choices:
Being in a job that you love, or you don't like.
You're in a relationship that is healthy or unhealthy.
You don't like your income.
Your house/car is or is not what you think it should be.
You’re stressed out.
It's so easy, as you can see, to blame others, the weather, the stock market, interest rates, prices of goods sold, traffic, computers, and a variety of other things. We tend to absolve ourselves because we believe that someone else is in charge.
Indeed, some events happen that are out of our control, such as storms, floods, and accidents; yet again, we have a choice of how we will react or respond to adverse circumstances in our life.
How are you doing with your choices?
What percent of life are you really living today because of your choices, 30, 50, 75%?
What better choices can you make to improve your life just a few percentage points?
Watch for the blind spots.
