Whether we realize it or not, we are making hundreds (maybe even thousands) of small choices every day. Of course, some choices are bigger than others. One day we may be choosing between two different companies that are offering a job. Another day we may be deciding between drinking coffee or green tea.
While not every choice is critical, it’s important to make sure to pay attention to the decisions that matter. If we don’t acknowledge the choices that are in front of us and the power we have over them, we can begin to feel like we are victimized by these choices in the long run.
For example, a person can feel down about their sluggishness and poor health but choose not to follow any new healthy eating or exercise routines. Or another can be constantly upset about a poor relationship with a friend, but continue to take part in the relationship.
No matter what our abilities or opportunities are, the course of our lives will be determined by the choices we make. We might as well pay attention to them and make sure they’re good ones.
