Before making a decision, release your fear of making the wrong one.

Who are you? text vertically along a photo of a woman standing on a beach looking skywards with the text journaling prompts for uncovering who you are below

What if every decision you’ve made has been the right one?

 
What if making the “wrong” decision was impossible?

How would that change the way you show up?

How would your attitude about yourself and your life change if you believed that every decision you’ve made was the right one?

Because here’s the thing…
 

There can’t be a wrong decision. Every decision you make is the exact right decision for you at that moment.

 
Some decisions have more desirable consequences than others, for sure.

But with the thoughts, beliefs, and knowledge that you had at the moment, you made a decision. Because of the thoughts, beliefs, and knowledge you had, you couldn’t have made any other decision.

Now…

You can make decisions from fear rather than truth. And those might feel wrong.
 

Decisions made from fear have a higher chance of being regrettable choices.
But they aren’t wrong.

 
First, who determines what’s “right” and “wrong”.

YOU are the ultimate authority on your life.

If you don’t like what you’re experiencing then it’s time to start making different decisions. But that doesn’t mean the decisions you’ve made up until now have been wrong.

Based on the knowledge, thoughts, and beliefs you had at the moment of the decision you made your choice. With different knowledge, thoughts, and beliefs you may have made a different choice…but you didn’t have different thoughts or beliefs, did you?
 

A decision in and of itself is neutral—it simply is.

 
The meaning you attach to the decision is what deems it “right” or “wrong”. (Maybe it’s time to take a look at some of those so-called wrong decisions and rewrite the story you’ve been telling about it.)

Second, if it were possible to make the wrong decision then you wouldn’t receive any benefit from it.

A lesson is a benefit. Some lessons are painful mofos to be sure, but they’re still benefits.

There have been times when I’ve been sure that I made a wrong decision yet once I explored the outcome of it I realized that it brought unexpected blessings. If it brought a blessing then it couldn’t have been wrong, could it?
 

It’s not that we make “right” decisions and “wrong” decisions, rather it’s the fear of making the wrong decision that holds us back.

 
The fear holds us back from making soul-aligned decisions.

The fear traps us inside our stories, beliefs, and conditioning—keeping us from making soul-aligned decisions.

The fear keeps us from making decisions as our Most Abundant Self.

As you make decisions today notice the fears that arise.

Accept their presence.

Let them go.

Tap into your Most Abundant Self and make your decision from that place.

Soul-aligned, truth-based decisions feel better than fear-based decisions. Promise.

Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
