We all make choices all the time, big or small, including this moment that you arechoosing to read this. Choices and the process of choosing make every human being very powerful. Whether it is simple activities like eating or shopping or more complex ones like acareer or a partner, choices and choosing are a part of our everyday life. Choices and choosing are about options, feelings and decisions all in a specificcontext. And this provides each of us massive leverage- the power to choose how we feeland change who we are, how we think and act.
Options are a range of choices based on our filters in the brain. Options provide us the flexibility to choose in the context of an outcome. Someoptions are obvious, others are not. Options are visible to a person based on what they are able to see and notnecessarily what is available. And that is because our brain starts applying filters based on past experiences,beliefs and our own imagination. The good news is that the options can be reconstructed in our thinking by adjustingour filters anytime.
The process of choosing is an emotional process at its core, however scientific andlogical one may try and make it out to be.People make choices that are most comfortable to them at that point of time.If there is more than one option that we feel good about, we start deciding on the onethat we are most comfortable with in that context. Logic or reasons strengthens the argument towards a choice and once again makesus feel good.So if choosing is all about feeling good then why do people make choices that they feelthey are compelled to?
And finally every choice we make takes us to a specific destination.If the destination is not in line with your expectation make a new choice tillyou get to where you want to be.What is required to do this is awareness of choices, the impact and flexibilityto adopt new choices.History has shown us throughout that it is not circumstances that shapehuman spirit but the human spirit that creates/ overcomes circumstances.So the next time you feel low, demotivated, upset, challenged, unresourceful,victimized, stressed, angry or frustrated remember to choose your emotion.You have the power of choice right at your disposal. Choosing to choose isyour prerogative. Exercise it and unleash your power. Or cut off your choicesand become a victim of your circumstances.The choice is yours! Choose wisely, everyday.Happy 2013!
