There is something that happens with us all when we live this life. We have make choices, which involve chance, and they create change. Seriously, you think about the time that you had a big choice to make in your life, and in that moment involved unknowns of chance, and whether it changed you for the better or the worse, you still grew from it.
Recently I have been reflecting a lot about these three C's. There have been many that have talked about the importance and the power of this words. Its crazy to think how many choices we make daily, monthly, yearly, and our lives. This morning I was watching my YouTubers doing my daily thing and I reflecting on the tasks I have to accomplish today. It's crazy right, I either sit on my butt watch TV or some TV Show or I can get up and start the hustle of the day.
Why do we say "If I had a choice?" We do have a choice, that's the thing. I did not get to where I am today because I allowed others to make choices for me. I have been pondering about the future with a few opportunities I have lately. It has really challenged the Entrepreneur inside of me. As tough as I may think I am, the entrepreneur lifestyle will in fact wear you out and test you.
Yesterday, I was on the phone with a lot of my close friends that have always been there and been through a lot with me. As I counciled and listened to their comments and direction. It was a revitalization that I had hit a breaking point. I don't mean I was going to give up, but that I was exhausted of acting like everything was going to be okay. I reached a point where it was hard for me to convince myself that it was going to okay, and that the ONE thing whatever that what thing was, was just around the corner.
I could tell you all day the power of choice, but when we are dealing with a big choice, a choice that impacts everyone around, and what you do with your time for next 3 to 5 years. They weigh on you. They break you down to your true self. You become transparent to yourself and those around you. You become real and truthful. These moments where I feel you are given the best influence from mentors, family, and whatever God you believe in. These are moments where you can start see the chance, and change that are about to happen.
After you become real and true with yourself, you see the chance of what you will become. It happens to you probably different than it does for me. You see, I do this thing where I take the Worst case, probably going happen case, and the best case. I bust out excel and crush numbers, I plan on the calendar with three different colors. I look at 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, and 5 years. Pull out my written goals, and dream sheet. I plug in my goals and dreams, I take Megin's School schedule, her goals and dreams. Then I take into account of what will be need: new car, house stuff, equipment, taxes, and investment.
After I have went through all of the three possible outcomes, I make my plans according to the worst case of chance. I will never put all my eggs in one basket because of my experiences, so have educated chance of the unknown now. We talk so much about leaps of faith, take risks, and all of this, but do you know for anyone that is successful. From a Boxer to a CEO the chances they take they know what will happen in a worst case, good case, and best case.
Once I have made the choice and now know that chances are worth it. I have plan, and checkpoint to keep myself to grow and always be changing.
Change is so many times taken as a negative. Why do we do that? Some of the greatest moments in my life are from being forced to change. Were they crazy hard? Oh yeah they were, but to honest they "Changed my life." I believe that when we make the right choice, and we know the chances that come with that choice, we are set and willing to change. Change is a good thing, as stubborn as I am, I can see the need for change and what change will bring a bigger and better outcome to my dreams and goals.
Facts that change is like Newton law "An object in motion will stay in motion." How fast or the time of that motive is always unknown but you see there is journey to that motion and that's the best part. If we can keep our motion moving forward to our dreams and goals, that's when we know we have reached greatness, and success.
Remember no one told you get off the couch, you had to make that choice. Your choices are power and will affect your outcome and will change your life.
