In your mind or in your spoken word . .
. . . What if the next time you found yourself saying, “I can’t afford _X_,” you stopped and said instead, “I choose not to afford _X_, because I value _Y_ more … ?”
. . . What if the next time you said, “I don’t have time for _X_,” you said instead, “I choose not to make time for _X_, because _Y_ is more important?”
What are your X’s and Y’s?
How do your priorities align with your values?
Where do you find yourself nodding in agreement?
Where are you getting defensive?
What if you accepted full control over how you spend your resources and your time?
What if you radically owned your own choices, past to present to future?
What if you realized that it has always been up to you, and it still is?
