I believe there are two sets of choices we can make in business and life that define our results.
We can make either…
Empowered choices, or
Let me define what I mean by these terms.
An empowered choice is…
A choice that supports your desire for change, transformation, growth, achievement and progression.
It propels you forward in alignment with your higher intentions.
I call these empowered because they are the result of acting in alignment with our true power of free will for personal betterment.
A disempowered choice is…
A choice that does not support your desires for progress. Instead it holds you back and hinders you.
I call these disempowered because they happen when we are influenced outside of our personal power. We are out of our power and thereby allow ourselves to be influenced by limiting forces e.g. marketing, other people’s values, addiction, the monkey mind, ego etc.
One of the most obvious examples of this is when someone chooses to change their diet for a number of beneficial health reasons. Every time you eat you are placed in a position to either act within or without your power.
I myself am currently deep in the middle of the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet.
It’s a complete reset of gut health designed to detoxify the gut. It eradicates parasites and unnecessary microbials; assists with detoxification and methyl rebalancing; and thereby emotional and mental stability and overall physical health.
It’s strict if you want it to work.
Like no sugar (no honey or agave either), no dairy, no pulses, no grains, no fruit, no high carbohydrates. I also don’t eat egg so it’s been a challenge adjusting – especially when eating out.
I chose it because I contracted some parasites. The courses of action I took didn’t work. Not treating it accordingly and pushing on with business and fatherhood has resulted in massive adrenal fatigue.
So I’ve continually found myself at a choice point with food.
I have to get on top of this.
If not I might not be able to achieve everything I wish to purposefully achieve in this lifetime.
Sure I made a big choice to start this diet and follow it through.
That was important.
But it’s the small choices that do the heavy lifting.
What has helped me maintain my vector of health is the string of small, empowered choices that I make at every mealtime. Whenever I feel hungry.
I also made a choice when I started, that in re-introducing food, if it doesn’t work for me I might need to say good-bye to it (I know even beer ).
Just the other day I woke up and I said to my wife, after three months of naturopathics and a butt load of dieting,
“I’m finally starting to feel my energy coming back!”
But do you know how many times I’ve had to make that choice over the food I eat?
I couldn’t give you a figure it’s that often.
Even amongst my own internal pressures, family pressure, peer pressure and the odd waiter with a bad attitude who thinks I’m being precious.
And that’s what I call an empowered choice.
So there’s an epic change happening for me at a cellular level within my emotional, physical and mental body and
it’s actually all stemming from one very simple thing.
A whole string of empowered choices.
Choices that support the change I want to experience.
The quality of your choices directly influences your results, every time.
And we know this!
We see ourselves making excuses, avoiding what we need to do, shying away from taking the necessary steps to achieve and grow.
Then we wonder what we need to do.
It’s simple – we just need to get clear on the choice necessary and EMPOWER it.
It took me ages to respond to my body’s needs.
I denied it.
I tried all sorts of avenues but nothing serious until it smashed me in two and I had no other choice than to step into my power.
The trick is you need to respond before life smashes you.
So let me ask you some questions:
What would you like to change?
What choice do you need to empower in order to make that change?
Can you make that choice to change for yourself?
And when would you like to do it?
If you find yourself answering anything other than…
“Yes” and “Now”,
You need to assess the potential loss that awaits you by not responding adequately and quickly.
You need to get back into your power and ask yourself what you really want in business,
What you really want in life and…
Who is it that’s really stopping you?
