The Power of Choice

What is the one single factor that can change the direction of one's life?

If your thinking The Power Of Choice then you've guessed correctly. It is our decisions that determine the outcome NOT our conditions.

So how do you teach a teen about choice so they no longer blame others for their future outcome. In a society today that tends to lead teens to believing it is the economy, their parents, their living conditions or lack of "whatever" which  lead them to believe they live in a world that is hopeless.

We should be showing and demonstrating that if they choose to make the right choices then they can determine their future success.

If they can change their negative thought pattern into a positive thought pattern then the positive thoughts can create a positive outcome by that choice.   

Positive Thoughts = A Positive Attitude and Positive Behavior..

Here’s another way to look at it: Success is a result of positive judgment; positive judgment is a result of experience, in most cases. And what about experience? Yes, experience is most often a result of bad judgment.

So here’s the good news: The experience gained from negative judgment and bad decisions is unbelievably valuable—it’s priceless! It gives us a reason to want to chose correctly

So don’t waste time beating yourself up over poor decisions you’ve made; learn from the experiences. Failure is actually one of the ways we learn.  Teach them to stop and think, What happened here? What could I have done differently? It’s only through self-evaluation that they learn how to make better decisions.

Place your  priorities in teaching a teen about the Power of Choice.  The power of the right choice!

Something to ponder on my friends...
