14 Best Choices for Your Life, that You can make Today!

 

In 2015 ….. Walk with Me. Exercise your mind with Me. Get stronger with Me. That’s what will happen when you Work with Me I want You to be able to ‘Express Yourself’ fully! You can also connect with Me here ….. scroll down page to ‘Expression Session’.

Hi.

Choice is one of THE most powerful forces in The Universe.

Some will argue that it IS the most powerful force however, today is not a day for arguing.

Imagine the Choices that you have or can have in your life. I mean, really imagine.

Imagination nudges ‘Choice’ as being my top Gift in life. Combining the two makes for the gift of a lifetime … every day, every year.

Continual birthday and Xmas gifts in one.

‘Choice’ in itself is not elusive.  However the actioning of ‘choice’  is, for many.

And this comes into prominence in many of my one on one Life Coaching sessions. All of my clients have choice however many either fail to recognise this or fail to act upon this.

When you choose, you are taking an action. Either a positive movement toward being a better You or improving your current circumstances OR just getting on with life instead of procrastinating about it.

But let’s get even more upbeat here and have a look at some of the outrageously good[I believe] choices that You have at your disposal … many of them, every day. Try these 14 on for size:14 Best Choices Blog post

1. Choose to do  something rather than nothing. It’s too easy to sit on your hands, get active instead. Think. Do. Enjoy the benefits .

2. Choose positivity over negativity. Positive people make things happen & draw in energy … and draw in like minded souls.

3. Choose the company of energy boosters rather than energy drainers. “Company” being people, the written word and verbal discourse. Find your energy boosters!

4. Choose to step out rather than step back. Your comfort zone is well, comfortable. If it’s working wonders for You then stick with it. If it has you trapped then choose to step out and experience something different … something better even?

5.  Choose imagination instead of doubt. ‘Doubt’ holds you back, imagining outside your current sphere of thought, propels you forward …. just hang on!

6. Choose fitness rather than fatness. This applies to body AND mind. Yes, I am politically incorrect but there’s a definite message here. Keep your Body & your mind active in order to get the best results. [As a complete aside, one of my major goals is to be as fit mentally & physically@70, as I was @40 … and I’m well on the way to achieving that]

7.  Choose to be yourself, not someone else’s “shadow”. Express who you are really meant to be.

8.  Choose to be strong rather than give in to the “easy way”.

9. Choose to say Yes to opportunity and not just see difficulty. “Too hard” is an often used excuse. When you choose to seek ‘opportunity’, life becomes that bit easier.

10.  Choose goals and direction in your lifeBe in the game. Go with the flow  only  if it’s going in your direction. No “plan”, no results.

11.  Choose to say No to distraction and Yes to focus & exhilaration.

12. Choose to understand that life has no manual. There are chapters that have yet to be written. You are the story teller and are writing your next chapter right now. Why not make it Your best seller!

13.  Choose to smile rather than frown. Choose to laugh rather than “cry”.

14.  Choose to stand up for yourself instead of being put in your place.

    Enjoyed your article! All your points are so valid…sometimes it seems difficult to show others the difference your thoughts towards a situation can change the entire way you view things. Choices….are a gift!
    I would love the opportunity to chat with you via skype sometime! Let me know if this will work for you!

    Isn’t it wonderful that we have so many choices, David. I’ve not always made the right ones, but I’m always grateful that I continued to have the choice to move forward after bad decisions!

      Hi Corinne,
      Thank You for your comment … it IS wonderful. And some of my choices I’d rather have again however when you choose, you also ’embrace’ the consequences.

    Choose Imagination over Doubt is my favourite. When we start imagining what our life ‘could’ be like we enter a state of mind of wonder. Doubt finds it very difficult to get a foothold in a ‘wonder’ state of mind. Whenever I feel doubtful – that’s what I turn to – my imagination. Thanks David for these insightful concepts. 🙂

      Hi Stu,
      ‘Doubt’ is a pain. It’s good to be in a better place of feeling. I appreciate your support.

    Great choices to make David. I find myself choosing and re-choosing on a daily basis. Thank goodness we can always choose again if a choice we made turns out not to be quite as good as we thought. Choosing imagination over doubt is my favourite.

      Thanks Elle,
      Keep choosing … we all have doubt at some point[s] and need a way to escape that.

    Hi David,

    I love your emphasis on ‘Choose’. Because, when comes right down to it, it doesn’t matter how we feel, we simply gotta Choose! Like my favorite of yours… “Choose fitness rather than fatness”. Hmm… love handles, or love life?

    Great post!

    Robb

      Thanks Robb,
      Appreciate your kind words. Choice is paramount, following through with it, even more so … that’s where you find & get “the feeling”.
