If you have to learn only one thing this year, ONLY one thing, then this is it.
“Every moment is a choice”.
Whatever you are, wherever you are is only because of the choices you have made in the past. All the time, you are making choices, be it automatically by your subconscious mind. For example:
- every morning, whether you exercise or not is a choice made by you, no one else
- whether you do that important work right now or keep procrastinating, is a choice by you
- it is your choice whether to think positives in your life or think negatives
Many times you don’t even realize you are making a choice and due to your previous habits, you keep making bad choices.
All these choices in the PRESENT are defining you and laying the path for your future. You can make BIG positive changes in your life, by keep telling yourself that every moment is a choice. You have to keep asking yourself – what’s the right thing to do here. You have to be aware of every moment which comes as a choice. Every action has an impact. Your decision to all those small choices MATTER. You just have to make small better choices in the present to shift your life in a very positive direction.
Now, ability to make better choices in your daily life depends on your willpower. Never underestimate the power of willpower. You should definitely exercise your willpower, so you can make better choices in daily life. With time, as your willpower grows and you make better choices, you’ll realize you are leading a much more peaceful and happier life.
Don’t beat yourself up whenever you realize you made a wrong choice. Even if you make one better choice every day, still you are shaping up your better future. The key is developing the consistency of making better choices over time. Like I said, consistency will come with the willpower.
If you keep practicing it, you’ll realize how much power you have. You can take your life in whatever direction you want to. Take a deep breath, think over it and let this thought settle in your mind. This small habit will attract wonders in your life, I bet.
