You'll Never Get It Right
Struggling to make a decision? Are you worried about making the wrong choice? This is an simple strategy to help you decide on what to do next.
In the big scheme of things, you can never really get anything wrong, which also means that you can never really get anything right. How freeing a thought! What is the point of anything then, you ask? Well, every choice you make is going to have a natural consequence. So the questions to ask yourself are “Does this serve me? Is this going to bring me joy? Is this going to get me where I want to go?”
Does that make me selfish? No. It is not selfish to do what you want to do. Selfishness is imposing your will on others for them to do what you want them to do.
What about hurting other people’s feelings? I would never suggest that you do anything to purposely hurt another. At the same time, it is not serving you to hurt you own feelings in order to spare another. If you decide to do this, resentment will soon set in which won’t feel nice for anybody. Plus, you will be really ticked off when that person acts without taking your feelings into account. Beware of pity; it doesn’t work in the long run. Remember, every person is responsible for his/her own feelings.
The thing that does not serve you best feels like being shackled.
The thing that does serve you best feels like expansion, like freedom – even if it’s scary.
So go ahead and garbage all thoughts of right or wrong, good or bad, appropriate or embarrassing, easy or difficult. You can’t get it right and you can’t get it wrong and it never ever ends. Your life is a series of experiences. What do you want to experience next?
