How To Make The Right Decision

I often get asked about relationship issues. And recently someone I know was planning to leave a toxic relationship. But one of our courses was teaching him how to deal with stress and to focus on the good in the rest of his life. The thing is, once he began feeling good again, he started to doubt his decision to leave, and that things were actually okay.

The situation hadn’t changed, but his outlook has changed.

That’s the truth of anything.

So how do you know what the right thing to do is when things begin to change?

When I was giving away being a schoolteacher I was plagued with the doubt about should I leave, but then overcome with the desire to get out. So I went and put my resignation in and that was in September effective the following December.

And I had more than a few months of feeling like I’d done the wrong thing. Because as soon as I decided to leave I had an ability to see the whole thing differently. Now I knew I wasn’t there forever and that there was definitely an endpoint in sight. And I would say that some of the most pleasurable teaching I did as a schoolteacher was in that period of time.

But yes, it filled me with doubt about whether or not I was making the right decision or not.

So what I say to anyone struggling with a decision is take yourself for a walk and mediate, find your truth. What you’ll find is that if it’s the right thing for you to do, for example get out of that relationship or leave a job, it will always be the right thing.

When you go to your heart and you say to yourself, “I’m committed to this because I know it’s the right thing, but I’m going to be shown every possible alternative between now the due date,” then that changes everything.

Because people do change and they change because you do. It’s the only way that I know that you can actually get other people to change is to change yourself. When you’re truly committed to it then, expect to see them changing all around you.

Run with it.
