Are Your Decisions Coming From an Inspired or a Desperate Place?
Updated: Jul 12, 2021
What state of mind are your decisions coming from? Do your decisions inspire you, or is the belief that if you don’t take this action, you have no other option? Many of us actually make decisions from a desperate place. Not only is that disempowering, but it can also lead to dreadful circumstances and terrible decisions.
For example, let’s say you took a job, not because you’re passionate about the type of work, but because you felt this was your only option to earn income at the time. Maybe you thought to yourself, I’ll only do this for a few months and then I’ll find a job I really like. Well, those few months may have turned into 5 years. We probably all know someone that took a job thinking it was short term, and then ended up staying there much longer, allowing that desperate energy to continue.
I remember helping a client who was in an unhappy relationship. When I asked her why she stayed all these years in that relationship despite being miserable, she said she didn’t want to be alone. As a matter of fact, the only reason she got into a relationship with this person in the first place, was because she was desperate to be in a relationship. Some even live with others out of desperation. They hate living there, but they do it because they are desperate and believe they can’t make it on their own.
Now let’s switch and look at inspired actions. Let’s say that you’re hungry and instead of willing to settle for almost anything, you think about what you crave and go and get that exact food. That is an example of an inspired action. You are actually looking forward to it, instead of thinking let me just eat anything to curb this hunger.
