No matter what happens you have a choice.
You can choose how you react to everything that happens.
If you choose to respond reactively or give in to the reactive response you will be influenced by the environment and outside forces. Ultimately becoming “a victim of your circumstances.” you become a victim of your circumstances, and your future is being created for you.
However, in choosing to respond proactively, you take personal responsibility for your life rather than just watching how things go. You create your future, and you “become the cause.”
The problem is often you react before you realise it, I call this “the reactive response” and that takes away your choice or more accurately your subconscious mind has made the choice for you before you realise it.
Pause for thought?
Just take a moment to notice how you feel reading that statement.
Reread it if you have to because you need to notice any resistance you feel to accepting the life-changing wisdom contained within that short statement.
So, how did you feel? Amused, angry, disbelieving, accepting, denying or nothing.
What was going through your mind?
Maybe nothing, or were you thinking something along the lines of “it’s ok to say that, but they don’t know what I’m going through” or “Easier said than done”. It can be difficult to accept, especially if you have a disability of any kind, facing a life-threatening illness, have just lost a loved one, or face any other type of difficult situation. Whatever you were thinking or feeling, you are right: but does the way you think and feel work for you?
However, whatever the circumstances and whatever you feel or think about it, the reality of that statement remains a fact. The outcome of any situation depends upon how you deal with it. You may be thinking that there are circumstances that you have no control over, and you would be right. But even then, you do have control over how you react to whatever is happening. You always have a choice.
