From Bad Choices to Power [Be a Rockstar]

These posts are meant to lead you be your most empowered self and help you overcome those things that are holding you back from reaching your goals. Some of this might resonate with you, or not, and I’m not here to judge anyone or their actions, only to give you something to think about.

We all make bad choices in life. No one is immune to this. However, we need to understand the reason behind our bad choices and what consequences we end up with after the fact.

Bad choices are usually impulsive choices rather than mindful ones. It is important to understand that every choice that you make will either have a positive or negative outcome. Sometimes a good choice will have a bad outcome and a bad choice will have a positive one, this is why we keep trying our luck. What worked before will not necessarily work again. So it is better to opt for the good choices.

However, in order to be more empowered and have a more fruitful life, we need to strive to make better choices in our life. Learning from your bad choices will turn them into power for you and they will be a stepping stone moving you higher. Stop giving away your power to your bad choices and take back that power.

Where to start:

  • Make mindful, thoughtful decisions.
  • Avoid impulsive choices, rather think before you speak or act.
  • Learn from your mistakes and do not repeat them.

Affirmation & Gratitude:

Practice your daily affirmations and gratitude and take care of yourself. This might sound like: “I will not react to everything today” or “I will think before I speak today”. At the end of the day, be thankful for your “wins” and grateful for the lessons learned from your missteps.

“Remember, the choices we make today
shape the people we become tomorrow.”

[Victoria Osteen]
