Previous results can often influence future decisions. It is possible to lose confidence in your own ability to choose for your highest good if you consider yourself to have been marred by past mistakes. It’s perfectly understandable that you would have pause for thought in such circumstances but overthinking can render decision making impossible. So how can you ensure you are making healthier choices?
A bit of a perspective reshuffle might be in order at this stage before we go further…
Whatever the past mistakes, experience was born of them… as was resolve and flexibility and a knack for survival, so even if the outcome you intended did not come to pass, something even more valuable was reaped from the journey you took. Taking that into account and then applying Principle 3: I AM Human (and shit happens), you can let go of the need for controlling the outcome and instead make decisions based on their potential for adventure rather than their guarantee of a specific destination.
Start by defining your success by the experience you harnessed from the ride, from the people you encountered and connections you made, from the ingenuity you dug from deep within to navigate the obstacles and rapids along the way, your success is so much deeper and so much broader than the outcome and besides, your small self cannot possibly get your mind around the bigger picture that Source has planned and what role your success or perceived failure plays in its orchestration.
When you make your choice, whatever it is, remember that you can make another choice a few steps down the road when evidence starts to show up of how the first one is working out. Life is constantly giving you nudges to adjust your sails so one wrong move doesn’t have to be the end of the world… (and I suspect if it was, a new world would be born from the debris).
You will always know where you are and what adjustments need to be made by:
- Your dominant thought patterns
- How you feel emotionally
- Your physical health
- Your energy levels
- External manifestations
To make healthier choices you can take the list above and then do a quick run down of the 7 Principles to come at the choice from a different angle…
- Am I aware of my power in this moment?
- Am I fully present with what is?
- Am I being influenced by my perceived mistakes?
- What is really true for me?
- How free do I feel in this moment?
- What are my immediate and long term needs?
- Am I allowing and accepting of change?
All of these triggers are meant to recalibrate you back to the centre of your own sovereignty and empowerment.
Let me know how you get on.
