I loved this saying:
“Your life becomes the thing you have decided it shall be.” by Raymond Charles Barker
I couldn’t agree more. Everyday we all tell ourselves things that define our lives. We think: ‘I’m too old/young for that job’ or ‘I don’t have enough time for a new relationship’ and these decisions generate behaviours that ensure the outcome. Behaviours about applying, or not, for new jobs, behaviours about how we present ourselves in our current jobs and behaviours around not speaking up and staying safe that keep us where we are today – forever.
If you want a new life it’s time to make a different decision about how old you are and how much time you have.
It sounds easy?
Well it is.
Right now, this minute, you can set your life on a new path by making a new decision about how you are and what you want. Each step along that path will present you with choices and each time it’s totally up to you to keep going with the new behaviours on your new path or go back to the old ones.
Some decisions lead really quickly to new lives and some meander around and take their time. But every new path will lead to somewhere else. You just need to make that first decision and take those first steps.
And if you’re not sure what you want and who you are, decide anyway because you can change your mind again in a heart beat. But if, you make no choices, you go nowhere!
What have you decided about yourself that is not serving you?
Create a new you by making some new decisions!
