22 Jul THE POWER OF CHOICE
This blog post is a little different from my normal posts. Why? well it’s not really about business or finance.
Instead, this blog is about the POWER OF CHOICE and realising just how important it is for our lives.
Literally where you are today, the things that you get to enjoy, the things that you are experiencing, the place that you live, the friends that you have, the family, the wealth, the abundance, the success, everything in your life, really is and has been determined by all of the choices you’ve made up to this point in time.
If you’re not there today where you really want to be, then you need to reflect on the choices that you’re making and have made in the past. If you feel like this is you, where you are living a routine lifestyle without any personal growth then consider taking a pause. Take a pause to reflect on your decisions, and what your goals are, where you want to be and your path to taking the action to get there.
I’m speaking from experience, with my story of how the power of choice has made a huge impact on my own life, and how a series of decisions led me to where I am today as a business and finance coach.
It started with one decision and in hindsight, looking back it’s probably 15 years since I made that one decision that really changed the trajectory of my life.
When I was struggling, emotionally, mentally, and physically from that one decision, I made a new decision and decided to join Toastmasters.
This was a key decision that changed the trajectory of my life. At Toastmasters I made some amazing new friends, one of them, my good friend Taflyn introduced me to personal development, and it was through starting to invest in myself and begin my journey into personal development that changed my life trajectory forever.
I cannot tell you the impact the personal development had on my life. I finally was able to step up to be the business leader I needed to be to grow my business.
I had the confidence and courage in my own ability to change the trajectory of my life, and to change the trajectory of the business.
I began to make better decisions, and the power of my choices, and my thoughts began to change the direction of my life.
I love this quote from Mahatma Gandhi,
…so, so, so true.
In my late 20s I lacked confidence in myself, and this was reflected in the decisions I made and the results I was achieving. However it was through making better choices and starting to do personal development, attend business workshops, and learn from amazing mentors, that my beliefs started to change. My thoughts started to change, and my actions began to change. The way I spoke to people, the way I led my team, my actions and my habits changed.
I started to make intentional decisions, and as a result my destiny has changed. It was the power of my choices over that period of time that has created the life that I have today. One that I love and I am very grateful for.
