How to Make Powerful Choices

Choices. Most of us make thousands of choices everyday. Some are simple and some are complex, but the fact remains that as humans, most of us have a lot of choices in life. But WHAT choices are the most important? And how do we make POWERFUL choices in our lives? Beyond genetics, we can practically choose everything about ourselves, our path, and our life. We can choose to be happy, we can choose to be focused, we can choose to laugh, we can choose to connect with others, we can choose what serves us best. Let’s check it out HOW, together.



Using the power of choice as a liberating tool that allows us to guide our own futures - is the holy grail. And if we can view and use choice this way rather than be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of choices we have - we’re one step closer to using choice to powerfully impact our lives.


Beyond genetics, we can practically choose everything about ourselves, our path, and our life. We can choose to be happy, we can choose to be focused, we can choose to laugh, we can choose to connect with others, we can choose what serves us best.


Each of us are making the best choices we can right now. But, we can also take steps to make more powerful and intentional choices with these guiding principles.


Know Your Values


Knowing your values is critical. We often think we intrinsically know what they are but don’t often name them, or write them down or think about them. Our values are our compass and knowing and understanding them will help you take the right path every time.

What are the immovable, unchangeable things in life that guide your decision making, are most important to you, that you would never give up?

Think about the definition of value, as a noun:

1. the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.

2. a person's principles or standards of behavior; one's judgment of what is important in life.


Know Your Goals


Understanding your goals will also help you make the right choices. Think about your goals, the object of your ambition or efforts, the things you have an aim or desired result for. And most likely you’ll have more than one - when you look at the various parts of your life.

Identify your goals for your personal life, your work life, your health, your retirement, your competitive ambitions, your spirituality - what makes most sense for you in each component of your life that makes up you.


Choose Your Battles


Often times we are driven to “go to the mattresses” on any and every topic that comes across our desk, our phones, and our lives in a day. Look at each battle and quickly evaluate what it’s worth to you.


Does it support your goals?


Does it directly impact your values?


Is it important for YOU?


If it is, evaluate each decision against your values and goals and align them. If it isn’t … let someone else make the choice. I know for some of us that seems unfathomable … but just try it. It’s freeing. And it will free YOU up to make powerful choices that support YOUR path.


In life, we have the choice to carve the path that supports our values and goals OR we can allow someone else to make those choices for us. But either way, we’re making a choice.


Step forward and make those powerful choices for YOURSELF.
