Choices: You Are What You Choose
On Thursday, March 29, 2007, Phyllis Sisenwine, the Lawyer’s Coach, will be presenting a very high energy, motivational program called Choices: You Are What You Choose at the Philadelphia Bar Association from 12 noon to 1 p.m.
So, it got me thinking…. Are we what we choose?
I guess I agree with Phyllis to a large extent. Making conscious choices gives you the freedom to choose your own way, instead of simply reacting to situations. I read an article about choices a while ago. According to the article, the following five steps are necessary to make better choices in life:
1. Make peace with your past choices
2. Look for a pattern
3. Decide to make better choices
4. Start making better choices
5. Ask for help
It’s true. If you’ve made bad choices in the past, there’s no use dwelling on them and regretting these bad choices. Why just complain? Make peace with these choices. Either accept them and make sure that you don’t make the same mistakes again – or change what you can and make better choices next time.
I am hoping that Phyllis will tell us how to make better choices. I have a feeling that she will say something like resolving to make better choices is the first step towards making better choices. I think she’ll tell us that we can choose to make positive changes in our lives by making good choices and goals.
I will have more to say about CHOICES after I attend her seminar on March 29, 2007. If you want to attend the program, please go to http://www.philabar.org to register. See you there, and remember, in the end, we don’t choose the life we live. WE LIVE THE CHOICES WE MAKE.
