Choices, Choices, Choices That’s What Lifes Journey is All About Choices!

CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES that’s what lifes journey is all about CHOICES!
For many things, this is an easy and empowering concept to embrace. Someone asks you out to dinner. Do you really want to go? You decide “yes” or “no”. You’re at choice. Someone asks you to do something you DON’T want to do. Again, you’re at choice…”yes” or “no”
But let’s get down to the choice of becoming healthy. DO YOU have a choice to become healthier? YOU sure do have that choice but why is it that our society is getting fatter and fatter each time we watch the news and tv.
HMMM! After all isn’t it our choice to stay fat or do something about our body fat, OUR LIFE, OUR DESTINY OUR FAMILIES FUTURE?
In life we got 4 choices to each and every decision we make, lets take a look at these 4 choices.
CHOICE #1 – STAY in the perspective of “I don’t have a choice” WHILE RESISTING or RESENTING the original commitment. This is a CHOICE.
CHOICE #2 – Make a new agreement. I’m big on keeping my word, however I believe it’s even MORE important to “be at choice”. And, often times creating a new agreement is best for YOU.
CHOICE #3 – Explore alternative resources. When we’re locked into “I don’t have a choice”, we’re less likely to explore alternative resources or to accept help from others. Set aside your ego and the need to be “significant”. Give up the notion of something “having” to be hard. Be WILLING for it to be easier. It doesn’t always have to be a struggle. “Be at choice” and open yourself up to the alternatives. Ask a powerful question. One of my friends is always asking, “How can this be done more easily and efficiently?” Funny thing is, there is usually an easier way if we’re open to it, and she is ALWAYS finding a way.
CHOICE #4 – ALIGN with your original CHOICE and DECIDE to ENJOY it or at the very least ACCEPT it. FIND SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOUR CHOICE – the challenge of it, working with a team, using your creativity, the feeling of accomplishment when the task is complete, knowing you’re a person of your word, learning and growth opportunities, or simply CHOOSING to follow through and give your best. I’m not suggesting you PRETEND, or that this is always EASY. I am suggesting that even in the most challenging of situations there is ALWAYS a way to RE-FRAME things within yourself and re-align with CHOICE if you’re open to that possibility. Focus on what excited you about the project in the first place. Focus on what following through with your choice will give you.
So here we are and we have made a CHOICE to become healthier and live life to the fullest capacity we can live it to.
As discussed earlier we do have a choice to stay fat or be a healthier and leaner person.
We choose to over eat, not exercise, eat poor choices of food, not drink enough water, are you getting the picture yet? Is this you? Most of population is like this, so how can we change our beliefs and start believing in ourselves that we can become leaner and healthier? To give you an idea what we need to do there are some words that I keep on repeating on a daily basis.
“In your heart lies the key,
That unlocks your desitiny
Look within and we’ll find,
everything we’re longing for”
The answers lie within you, each one of us has the power to make the choices that WILL CHANGE OUR LIVES, and in most cases it can be a positive result within a few days of just focusing on changing your beliefs and BELEIEVING IN YOURSELF THAT YOU CAN CHANGE NOW!
There is a quote that I love and it has become a affirmation for some time to keep me focused here it is.
‘The mind can assert anything and pretend it has proved it.’ DH Lawrence
YES it is mind over matter.
Take charge of your health now before the fat takes charge of you, your life and everyone else around you.
MAKE THE “EASY” CHOICE AND MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES FOR TODAY! FOR A HEALTHIER, LEANER BODY TOMORROW!
Remember if you think that any choice is hard, IT WILL BE HARD, THINK ITS EASY AND YOUR LAUGHING DOWN THE ROAD OF SUCCESS OF A LIFETIME.
YOU CAN DO IT, JUST DO IT, YOU WILL SUCCEED, THIS IS EASY, I AM WORTH IT!
