On September 22, we’ll focus on Choice.
Choice is the power to control your life. Consistently making wise decisions is key to becoming the person you were created to be. The decisions people make (good and bad) are constantly changing the world around us. But Choice doesn’t originate in the world around us. It begins within the mind, in the frontal lobe to be exact. This is where our judgment, reasoning, social norms and long-term planning take place. These all contribute to making healthy, life-giving choices. Human reasoning and planning capabilities are more powerful and complex than those of other species, which allows for informed decision making.
Studies have shown that people who believe they have control over their own lives are healthier, happier and live longer. This is the power of Choice at work. This belief is reflected in everything they do – the goals they set, the habits they form and the balance they find in their lives.
In this session, learn how to harness the power of choice to control your life.
