“The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice.” ― George Eliot

Everyone has choice. All the time. In everything that shows up in life. It may not always seem that way, but it is true.

Sometimes, some of the alternatives available to us may be unpalatable or completely unacceptable for any number of reasons, so it may seem that there is only one viable option, even if that last remaining option is distasteful—in which case, it is usually the least of all evils. When this happens, we may think that we really have no choice at all—or that we are forced into something we didn’t really want.

In other circumstances, we may be making our choices unconsciously. In this case, we may be operating on “auto-pilot”, making decisions without even being aware. The problem here is that, when we aren’t aware of our choices, then we are certainly not aware of their impact, and we may not realize how our actions are affecting the world around us.

In this episode, David is joined by Linda Shively, a coach and teacher who delights in bringing joy to people through her practice of Laughter Yoga. Here, you will be able to find out more about how you can:

  • distinguish options from choices;
  • make conscious, empowered choices in all areas of your life;
  • recognize the impacts—intended and unintended—created by your choices; and
  • take full responsibility for your choices and their consequences.

So check out the video and enjoy!
