“Today I make great choices because they are made with full awareness.”
Day 10/21 – Conscious Decision Making. It’s estimated that the average adult makes about 35,000 decisions a day. From the very moment we wake up until the moment we end our day, we make choices. Think about when you wake up. Do you choose to smile and begin your day with a grateful heart, or do you choose to be bitter and complain about how tired you are? It’s our choice to be positive or negative right off the bat.
Every decision we make and every action we take generates a force of energy that returns to us. Every single thing we do creates a corresponding energy that comes back to us in some way. We really can’t escape the consequences of our decisions, whether good or bad, but of course we’re human and not always going to make all the right choices, so it’s important that we are gentle with ourselves. We can’t always be perfect, but we CAN become more conscious of the decisions we make. The beauty of our lives and our free will is that we can always choose again if we do not like the result of a previous choice.
When faced with a decision, Deepak says to ask yourself “will this choice bring fulfillment and happiness to me and to those who are affected by this choice?” He encourages everyone to do this each time we are faced with a decision and if we listen to our heart, we will always make the conscious choice. Asking the heart for guidance in conscious choice making is a must. The heart speaks from a genuine, authentic place... so believe in yourself enough to seek guidance from within.
No one controls our destiny but ourselves. Our future is shaped by the choices we make today. So let’s commit to ourselves to be more present and aware of every decision we make so we can all enjoy the beauty our loving choices will give back. Thoughts?
