You don’t get to choose how you’re going to die or when. You only get to choose how you’re going to live. —Joan Baez
One of the most difficult ideas for many of us to accept is how much choice we have in our lives. Yet an awareness of choice is so important because choice is the precursor to change.
So many times I hear people share how stuck they feel in jobs that no longer fit. I’ve been there myself. Yet there really is no such thing as being stuck because we always have choices.
If you are in a job that no longer fits, it’s time to focus on your options and make a choice:
Option #1: Stay in the status quo. Take no action and feel no differently.
Option #2: Make an adjustment somewhere in an effort to influence positive change
Option #3: Let go of your job and find something that fits you better.
Give yourself freedom to choose the option that best supports what you want to experience. Don’t limit your choices to the option that seems easiest. Remember, you are in control.
This video #2 in my series, Becoming an Inner Architect, supports the idea of choice and the options now in front of you. I elaborate more on these concepts in my upcoming book, Inner Architect: How to Build the Life You Were Designed to Live.
