From Response to Choice

One of the most vital aspects in determining your RESPONSE-ABILITY is the amount of programming you choose to consume every day.

And in the current worldwide situation, too much exposure to ‘keeping up to date’ is not helpful.

There’s a difference between being educated and dwelling on the subject. And it’s very easy to shift from one to the other.

The feelings we experience are in a very large part dependant on the beliefs we have. We know that beliefs are formed through a pattern of thinking that is on repeat.

In other words, if you have a thought that you continually grasp, hold onto and focus on, you will form a belief around it.

Enter the media.

By repeatedly watching the updates, you are habituating the thinking that creates the belief of doubt, fear, panic and scarcity.

Your ability to RESPOND to the situation is dampened by the beliefs that come with it.

Think of it this way. If you believe that the situation is bad, I mean really bad, how will you respond? Are you likely to respond with love to your family, your partner? Are you likely to be effective or ineffective at work? Is your immune response likely to be empowered or disempowered?

Your RESPONSE-ABILITY must become a disciplined approach.

Right now, it is vital that we all do two things.

1 – Stay educated

2 – Be positive and be a positive light for other people

Every day, ask yourself “Who do I want to be today?” And look to live into the answer. Be the person you wish to be, rather than the person your fear is triggering you to be.

Your greatest power will rise when you shift from being at the response of the environment, and into a choice for how you want to process and act.

This is not always easy, especially when your environment does not give you the opportunity to normalise to the continual changes.

At the moment, change has become the new normal. And we will normalise to it.

Until then, our choice of information consumption is vital.

I’d encourage you now to review your intake and notice if you feel better or worse after taking it in. If you feel worse, take that as a sign that you should mitigate exposure.

When we look back on these months, we want to be able to say that we lived up to and into the best of who we are.
