The Power of a Decision
Decisions, Decisions, Decisions…sometimes it feels as if life is just made up of decision after decision right?! What to eat? What to wear? Where to go? When to go? Walk or Drive? Regular or decaf? How many sugars? Sugar or Splenda? Should I drink more water? Answer emails now or later? Should I spend less time on the computer? Am I spending too much money online? IRA or ROTH? Buy or Rent? Black or White? Long or Short? Apologize or stand my ground? Am I right? Am I wrong? …What should I do? What should I do? What should I do?!
And those are just a few. Not to overwhelm you from the beginning or anything, but I’d like you to take a moment and think about how many hundreds, if not thousands of decisions that you are making every single day. Really, think about how many hundreds, if not thousands of decisions that you are making every single day.
I know… it can be almost overwhelming to even comprehend the amount of decisions that you are making every day. Have you ever thought that these decisions are literally creating what you call “My Life”? Therefore, if this thing called “My Life” isn’t as fulfilling, fantastic and magical as you would like it to be, I suggest that a great place to start is by looking at the decisions you are making.
All we are doing here is bringing it up and looking. It is literally impossible to be aware of all of these decisions. But, if you can start with baby steps and become a little more aware of your unconscious decisions and also sharpen the awareness of the ones you are making consciously, it is a surefire way to get back in touch with the Magic of life. Once you start to become more aware of your decision making, I know the quality of your life will shift.
You are creating your life with every decision. You are shaping your destiny with every decision. You are responsible for making that destiny something that you look back on and say “Yes, I made decisions that brought me to my joy and my ultimate self.”
“It all comes down to making new decisions. The only thing that can change your life is a decision and in the moment of a decision, life is changed”
When we make a decision to move forward about something in our lives…anything, it sets in motion many, many things. Making the decision to move forward says to you and to the Universe; “The wheels are now in motion, rehearsal is over, the curtain is up and the show is ON!” Your life will not be the same as it was before you made that decision. When you make a decision towards something you are declaring that you are ready for, what will come from that decision, no matter what the outcome may be. Decisions are extremely powerful because they can be the entry point where your endless power of creation meets with the Universes limitlessness. That combination can and will move mountains and more in your life.
On the other hand when we make the decision NOT to move forward with something… the EXACT same thing happens. We think that if we say “No” to something that we are stopping the energy. That’s not true. What actually happens is that when we say “No”, that intention drives the energy towards what we are saying “NO” to! And in terms of the powerful Law of Attraction, when we say “NO” to something, we are really saying “YES” to it and bringing more of it into our life. The Law of Attraction is always working whether you are aware or not and it is just giving you exactly the same vibration that you are giving attention to… Make sense? At its most fundamental level all a decision is, is a cue for energy to go in a direction. When energy moves in any direction that’s when things, events, situations occur in our lives.
You can look at anything in your life and trace it back to a single decision that you made which began a ball rolling and eventually took on a life of its own. Some decisions lead to huge changes and others are simpler. For example, cook a dinner, lift your arm, get a divorce… A decision can be something as simple as deciding to get out of bed in the morning or as complicated as getting married. One seemingly small decision can be hugely powerful and starts a whole variety of experiences and possibilities into motion in your life.
There is a way of going through life by default which among other things, means that you are not aware of the decisions that you are making. Therefore, for the most part you are an unconscious decision maker. Or you can live your life with awareness as a conscious decision maker. In between these two extremes is where most of us are, most of the time. Usually we are hyper aware of the big, huge decisions in life, but we are relatively unaware of what we call “small” ones.
Let’s look at the decision to get out of bed. Think about it, none of the things that happen in that day, including the opportunities to make more decisions, would have been presented if you stayed in bed. Who knows? Maybe one of the opportunities you could have that day would be to buy a lottery ticket or “bump” into Mr. or Ms. “Right”…I’m just saying… if you make the decision to stay in bed you could have missed all those opportunities or you could have stayed in bed, pulled out your laptop and written the great American novel! You see how this is all about making a decision about staying awake and living by intention instead of default?
Among many other things in my life, acting on stage has been a passion of mine since I was a little boy and when you are trained as an actor you learn “There are no small parts, just small actors”. How many times have you seen a play or a film where the lead actor or actress was less than phenomenal, but there was that one person who had one scene and sometimes even just one line, but you will remember them forever? Even though he does lead roles now, Phillip Seymour Hoffman started his whole career based on this philosophy. Actors like Phillip Seymour Hoffman decide that their seemingly small roles have just as integral a “role to play” (pun intended!) in the story as the lead character. In the same way, almost every decision has the same potential to affect the whole as any other.
When you make the decision to live in the Magic of life you are making a decision to be a conscious participator in your life for the better and when you become a conscious decision maker the possibilities for your life are literally limitless.
· Find or create a journal, so that you can record any thoughts, impressions or revelations. In that journal please write down the 3 decisions that you have made that have most affected your life. Do not do anything about them. Just notice what power one decision can have in your life.
