How do you Navigate Choices?

How do you Navigate Choices? 

How do you navigate the huge variety of choices that are presented in your world?   In contrast to choosing chocolates by smashing out the bottoms, real life choices are challenging.  Particularly, do you remember how the decisions-making of other family members felt for you?  Conclusively, our Training Program in navigating choices from our parents or caretakers.  

There are many options available to navigate choices.

  • First:  We can let someone else make the choice for us, that’s one option.  Undoubtedly, that decision will not be “owned” by the person who made it.      

  • Second:  Choosing to appease another is possible. Surely I resonate with Mahatma Gandhi’s quote below. 
        • A No uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a Yes merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.

  • Third: Or maybe the option is choosing to be in the “A” crowd.  Unquestionably, this is a temptation. Further, this type of relationship will lack real connection.  

  • Fourth:   There’s lots of power today with money.  Surely, money can be an option that drives all of your choice-making.     

  • Fifth:  The 2003 Matrix  movie shares another option to make a choice in the quote below.  Specifically, it describes basing choice on reaction!  Have you done that?    

The 2003 Movie the Matrix Reloaded comments on choice are outlined below.  

The Frenchman says: You see there is only one constant. One universal. It is the only real truth. Causality. Action, reaction. Cause and effect

Morpheus replies: Everything begins with choice.

The Frenchman’s response is:  No. Wrong. Choice is an illusion, created between those with power and those without.

A priceless quote in the 2002 Sweet Home Alabama movie from “Earl Smooter, when his daughter has two suitors is listed below.  Particularly, the quote demonstrates that sometimes you just can’t do two things at the same time!                                                                                                                                                             

                                                                                                          You, can’t ride two horses with one ass, Sugarbean!

Research demonstrates some of the challenges of choices made within a small group.   Plainly, According to a 2018 New York Times Opinion Sunday on How to Make a Big Decisions diverse groups made better decisions than those comprised of homogenous groups. Additionally, they discuss storytelling as something that we instinctively do when considering a big decision.  Surely, you have many stories to tell from your history  that play out into your future.      

According to Brene Brown, author, speaker: 

Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.
 Brene Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

Below is an outline of the 5 R’s Practice for you to become more clear on how you navigate choices.   

  1. Reflection—Do you have a Reflection on making a choice that you are wondering about?  We often make choices very differently depending on the experience, relationships involved, or event?

  • Research—What has your past experience been; were there ups and downs in certain relationships or experience?   Can you see a pattern from your past experiences in making a choice in a particular area?  I saw a pattern in how I made choices in certain relationships that I knew I had to change. 

  • Recycle—Is there any part of your experience you would like to let go of.  For me, I was able to understand why I made Choices around men that were based on my past Beliefs with men and not connected to the present self.  This gave me the space to understand what was the best decision for me based on the present circumstances. 

  • Rewrite—Do you want to rewrite your process of making a choice in a particular area or another; or are you simply more aware of your choices and pleased to continue in your approach?  It’s totally up to you? 

  • Rehearse—There is a choice in every moment; it can be just a thought or state of mind that you are choosing.  Decisively, tere is much opportunity for rehearsing.
