The Decisions you make in life can either empower or hinder you. When you make empowering decisions, you’re making decisions that allow you to have control of your life. You are able to determine for the most part the life you live you call the shots in your life, ultimately you determine your destiny. But when you make decisions that negatively affect your life, then you don’t have much control of your life and don’t know where you will end up in the end. When you’re making empowering decisions, you are making decisions that are giving to you in life, not taking from your life. Meaning, these decisions are helping you to grow as a person, not holding you back. Empowering decisions can be extremely hard to make, just because they positively affect your life doesn’t always mean they will be easy to make. I firmly believe the opposite is true, for most people, it’s harder to make decisions that empower you vs decisions that hinder you. Because empowering decisions for the most part require more effort than decisions that negatively affect your life.
For example, when someone is struggling through a difficult time in their life because they are getting picked on at school, or they are stressed out about something that’s going on. It’s much easier not to talk about what you’re going through with someone, suppress your emotions and hide your struggles form other verses speaking up and asking for help from a person. In this case, when you make the easier decision not to say anything that negatively affects your life because eventually what you are going through can affect you more and more and get to the point that you decide to make unhealthy decisions. Decisions like drinking, smoking or using others drugs to try to escape the pain and suffering you are going through, which can lead to you misusing substances. But if you make the tough decisions the decisions that comes with the nerves the fright and concern, and you speak up and ask for help from someone, not only do you empower yourself and become more in control of the situation but you start the healing process to get through the fight you have been facing. The following are 4 ways empowering decisions positively affect your life besides having control of where your life goes.
