When faced with a difficult decision, what do you do? How do you decide which path to take? Are you a logical type person who needs to have all the facts and figures or are you so in tune with life, you intuitively know which path you must take?
How do you decide to take one path instead of another? Do you make a decision or are you like most people afraid,
Afraid to choose in case you take the “wrong path” and lose out?
What Happens When You Fail To Chose?
In life there are no certainties. In fact, I am sure you have heard the phrase; the only thing certain in life is death. If this is the case, ase is the case, why do we, as humans, struggle to choose, ponder high and low; waste hours of our precious time searching for answers when all you have to do is choose.
What Is So Difficult About Choosing?
Fear is the reason for not choosing. Every emotion, thought, word or deed is driven by our deep-seated need to be part of the crowd, accepted and loved. To belong, to be “somebody”.
Everyone wants to feel valued, appreciated and loved. And we spend our whole life searching for that one special person to make our lives feel full; or we buy another pair of shoes or fancy kitchen gadget to satisfy that need.
What Is It That Drives The Human Spirit To Be Loved?
Strip away all your fineries and what do you have you left? How do you feel about yourself when you look in the mirror? What thoughts greet you? Do you smile, glad, happy at your reflection or do you cast a frown, recall all the times someone called you fat, piggy ears, nappy hair or ugly?
It isn’t easy to let go of the need to be accepted yet when you do, when you take that leap of faith and release your attachment to safety and security you will discover an even greater need. The need for freedom, adventure, excitement. You were born to fly, to be great, to be a pioneer. When you limit yourself, stick to the safety and security of everyday habits, you deny yourself and others the opportunity to see life beyond your current situation.
Life has blessed you with an open heart, a curious mind, a body and soul. As they say, use it or lose it. Take a chance. Dare to be different. Get your house in order, step out and embrace a newer you.
