Making Choices: Fear or Faith?

“It’s easy to forget that the circumstances of our day-to-day lives are the results of decisions we made yesterday, last month, and last year. We don’t wind up thousands of dollars in debt because of one extravagant purchase, nor do we gain thirty pounds as a result of one decadent dinner. And our relationships certainly don’t end overnight because of a single heated argument. We are where we are because of the decisions we make every day. If we want to better understand how we have created our present-day reality, all we need to do is look at the choices we made and continue to make along the way.”

Every important choice we make is being guided by one of two places: either it is an act of faith or it is an act of fear. Faith opens the door to a new future… while fear keeps us rooted in the past.”

From The Right Questions: Ten Essential Questions to Guide You to an Extraordinary Life by Debbie Ford.

Just for today, think about the choices you are about to make. STOP, TAKE A BREATH, and ASK:

"Am I making this choice based on faith or is it based on fear?"

Choose wisely,
Coach Carolyn

REVIEW: The Right Questions
I have wanted to purchase this book for sometime and finally did. It was definitely worth it! A beautifully written book of ten questions to ask before making any decision in life. What I love most is that it is written so simply as only Debbie can. It draws the reader in to get to the heart of spiritual decision making.

I highly recommend this book if you are needing to make some serious changes in your life. Remember, your life is a result of the choices you have made up until now. Are you still wanting to make the same destructive choices? The Right Questions will help you in making healthy and proactive choices so you can live a more fulfilling live.
