Your Choice - Your Decision - What is best for YOU?

Updated on August 25, 2010

Your Decision or Your Choice

When times get tough, when you are going through some pretty bad times and you probably don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Remember, there is ALWAYS a choice to turn your situation around, to start making the right decisions. You may have to look this way or that way to find the direction you are looking for but just know there are choices in life and you get to make those decisions. Steer your life the way you WANT, when you are in the deepest, darkest part of whatever bad situation you are in, make the choice and do the right thing. Through good times and bad, remember, the choice is yours, you always have a choice.

Your Options, Decisions and Opportunities

In life, when circumstances are tough and you look like you have not other option, remember, you do have other opportunities. You should exercise your choices and decisions each and every day of life. Keep in mind that you can’t change the past but you can change the future. Here are some quick tips to thinking through your options, your choices and/or your opportunities to making the right decisions;

  1. You choose the job in your life, is it the job your really want? Can you choose to make the leap to the job you really want? Have you thought through what it would take to move to your real passion in life? You have to start making these decisions in your work life.
  2. Don’t blame your family, your friends, your loved ones, blame yourself for the choices you made.
  3. Are you happy? Are you doing what you want with your life? If not, why? What choices have you made to make yourself happy? Change your bad decisions into good decisions.
  4. Determine what you like and dislike about yourself and make the decision to start changing you.
  5. Are you surrounding yourself with positive people that help you find your options in life? Positive people will lead you to the path of happiness because they believe in happiness.
  6. Don’t be afraid to deal with your fears! Life is short, get control of your fears and start living. This is an opportunity to control what you fear most, take the opportunity. You are responsible for you!
  7. Take responsibility of yourself and of your future, don’t’ let others do it for you.
  8. Learn to let go of the past and learn to love yourself again. These are the right choices in changing your future.
  9. The choice is yours to change YOUR life, be what you want to be, a painter, writer, dog walker, musician, whatever it is, it’s YOUR life
  10. ALWAYS do the right thing in every decision you make, you have that choice to pick the right path to take! Be good, be you, be real!

These are realistic choices and heart felt decisions that you need to do above, they are hard sometimes to achieve but very attainable. It’s your choice, your decision and you have one now to make. Make the right choice that fits with you and your family, learn to live right, learn to live well and most of all, in good times and in bad times, you have a choice, YOU ALWAYS have a choice, look for the path, find it and make your opportunity change for the better, for the good, for you.

      Hi Ladybird. I linked your hub to mine on indecision. My point was there's not always one right choice, but many choices - some better than others. Still I like your steps that you outlined and the idea that things are rarely if ever as hopeless as they might seem. There are choices! Thanks for the great hub.

      I wish more people would learn these lessons and take their own choices as theirs and not blame everyone else. I take responsibility for all my choices. Great advice.

      Great hub! I find people who are unhappy with their lives always find someone or the other to blame, so I completely agree with what you say. Wonderful advice....
