Students and Parents: Learn the First 3 Choices of Change To Improve Your Situation

“You don’t get to choose how you’re going to die or when. You only get to chose how you’re going to live” Joan Baez

Maintaining a positive attitude can only take place if students, parents are you listening too, are aware of the choices that life has to offer. Feeling stuck, feeling trapped, or feeling that you are unable to make progress derive from past experiences. By relying upon past experiences to make your choices, you are often applying information that does not work in the present situation.

If you take your time and examine the simple choices presented here you will take the first step necessary to changing for the better:

You Always Have Choices

According to Susan Hanshaw, author of the new book “Inner Architect: How To Build The Life You Were Designed to Live”, one of the most difficult ideas for people to understand and comprehend in order to take action is the idea of choice. For choice is the precursor to change, and as we can attest, sometimes change can be difficult even painful. If you are feeling stuck, if you are feeling lost, or if you are feeling your career has lost meaning, it is time too focus on the answer:

The First 3 Choices of Change:

1. Option #1: Keep everything Status Quo. Take no action and feel no differently

2. Option #2: Make an adjustment somewhere in an effort to influence positive change

3. Option #3: Let go of your job and find something that fits you better

Susan Hanshaw’s video, #2 in the series “Becoming an inner architect”, supports the idea of choice and the options of choice you now face. These concepts and steps were derived from Chapter 1 “Cultivating Your Mind To Consider Change.”
