The Power of Choice
Are you living the lifestyle you’ve dreamed about OR still allowing yourself to make decisions that take you farther and farther away from your dream.
I’m reminded of the story of the scorpion begging the frog for a ride across the lake. The frog answered, “I’ll not give you a ride because you will sting me.”
“I’d be so grateful that you saved me from drowning and I’d never sting you” said the scorpion.
The frog agreed and gave the scorpion a ride on her back. No sooner than they reached dry land, the scorpion stung the frog.
“Why’d you sting me cried the frog as she lay dying?”
“That’s what scorpions do” replied the scorpion as she crawled away.
The frog clearly had a choice; she could have left the scorpion behind and lived. The scorpion thought she didn’t have a choice because she believed she had to sting.
As humans we have choices too. The power to choose empowers you to effect change in your behavior. Understanding the choices you have are important to creating the life you dream about and therein lie your power.
What choices are driving your behavior? AND Are you ready to step into your power?
