What Am I Going To Do When I Grow Up?

Choice = Power

Posted on: December 2, 2008

“Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice: It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” Williams Jennings Bryan


“We have thoughts, feeling and emotions, but we are not our thoughts, feelings, or emotions.” Frances Vaughn

Just because we have a thought doesn’t mean we have to keep it, and just because it may be our first thought, it certainly doesn’t make it right. By choosing, in the moment, to control our thoughts, we empower ourselves to control our destiny.

So, when you notice draining thoughts, what would you like to choose to believe?

For example, I might have a limiting belief that I have to be nice to everyone and this might drain my energy because I feel like I have to say yes to everything or it makes me feel guilty to tell someone I don’t want to do something.

What I can choose to believe is my first step to really being nice is being nice to myself and saying yes to everything isn’t actually nice to myself since I get overwhelmed and stretched too thin, so setting boundaries will keep me calm, peaceful, and successful.

What might you say to reset the lyrics in your head?
