We all have choices to make every day and this ability to make daily decisions gives us a sense of freedom or control over our lives.
You get to a stoplight and you get to decide, “Do I take the short cut or the scenic route?” Most days you put your underpants on first, but if you wanted to take a step on the wild side, you could put your socks on first. You get to decide what television programming you’d like to watch, and what political party you most align yourself with.
Most of us get to decide what clothes to wear (and if you’re like me, this can be a crippling decision when you look at a closet full of clothes and can’t find anything to wear).
When our decision-making accountability grows, and the stakes run higher our choices come with challenges and consequences. In times, like these we often lean to the path of least resistance.
When you hear your inner voice calling out to you, reminding you that you were meant for so much more in this life, you know that if you were to listen to it and action on it, there is a very good chance that you would face unknown challenges, requiring more of an investment from you, than would be expected from working your “normal” job.
To not answer the call is safe, the path of least resistance, and you have nothing to lose because you have not put yourself at risk.
You don’t have to worry about your friends telling you that you’re foolish to chase after your dreams, and to do so would be ridiculous, because you’re not worthy. And if you were to proceed to live the life you were destined to live, the naysayers are waiting in the wings, withing for any misstep you might make, ready to say, “I love you, man, but I told you so. You better get out now, before it gets any worse.”
There is a lot of fear which keeps people just like me and you, from attempting to fully embrace my or your highest and best.
So, you keep your nose down, moving forward, going through the motions, while denying your own divinity and having the life you were meant to live.
Still, something within you resonates and you know, regardless of what other people might say, that you can live a better life, your best life, and make the world a better place.
You have heard people say, just find happiness in what you have, give all you can in service to others, don’t expect too much in return, and if you can do that, you can get your reward in the afterlife.
What do you think about the idea that every moment you do not make a stand for your own divine independence, you deny the sanctity of your sacred birthright?
Every moment you do not make a stand for your own divine independence, you deny the sanctity of your sacred birthright.
Your birthright consists of your coming to this planet with talents, skills, and special abilities to help to make the world a better place. You have a unique calling, purpose, and message, a message that is unique to you and your life experience. You have been chosen to deliver this message.
Your birthright includes living an excellent life, enjoying all the good things this life has to offer joyously in all its fullness. So, think on these things, and go forth in insured action to make your dreams come true because your dreams would never have occurred to you if they were to be withheld from you by any set of circumstance, anyone, or anything.
The battle is on for your soul. Society would like to dictate that you settle for mediocrity, that you succumb to a life of servitude to the machine from which the chosen few profit immensely, while the rest of the world’s inhabitants wrestle in the mud over the spoils.
And every day that you give in to those who would take advantage of you, the ones that use and abuse you, those who give you empty words of encouragement to get you to perform like a circus monkey for their amusement and profit, every precious moment you live in compromise, your dream fades.
To win the battle for your soul, you must stop settling for this life of slavery and imprisonment is a system that profits from your life, while you get so extraordinarily little in return for your efforts.
You can turn the scales.
You already know that your life is the result of the choices you make. One look at the life all around you will substantiate this so clearly.
To change your world, you must start making decisions that have impact on your life. Start making hard choices that are not considered as the path of least resistance. The path of least resistance leads to complacency, a dispassionate life, a boat-load of regrets, and an early grave.
Don’t get me wrong, going with the flow is great, if the flow of your stream is headed to the land of plenty, but if it is headed some dark elsewhere, you must exert the effort necessary to change your destination.
Stop letting others dictate your destiny. You need to get behind the wheel of your life. It means taking the wheel from whoever’s doing the driving now, whether it be your parents, teachers, boss, or overbearing spouse. These people have no right to minimize your right to choose for yourself.
Avoid the path of least resistance. Make the difficult choices and take full responsibility for your quality of life.
It’s time for you to take your life back if you are willing and able to step up your game and take full responsibility for your future, your future home, your financial outlook, all the things your heart desires, and your ability to give back and make the world a better place.
