How do you make your decisions?
Things to consider to make smart decisions:
1. What is the purpose of this decision?
Get used to asking this question about everything in your life. What is the purpose of anything that you do? Why are you doing what you're doing? Are you running your life or is life running you? Are you intentional with your life? At the end of my life, I want to be able to say that I made the most with what God gave me and that I made a positive impact to support and serve those around me. Do you know your purpose with this one decision or your bigger purpose in life?
2. What are at least 5 possibilities?
We often limit ourselves to 1 or 2 possibilities when in reality, the possibilities are endless. What options can you consider? If you can't come up with other possibilities, ask what's getting in your way? To get more possibilities, change your perspective. I am the queen of looking at things from different angles. Call me if you want some support with that.
3. With each possibility, ask, how are you going to feel?
Which one feels best? "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." -Teilhard de Chardin. How do you want to be?
4. And the ultimate question: If I do "x", will it allow me to be more of who want to be or not?
This one is pretty self explanatory and can stand alone, apart from the other questions. Is it getting you closer to your end game or further away?
