An Infinity of Choices

Quote of the Week

“You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment or our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.” – Deepak Chopra

In order to live the lives we dream, we must remember what Deepak is telling us. Our tendency is to imagine ourselves living within a narrow range of options dictated by current capabilities, outside influences and the momentum of our recent trajectory.

Our achievements are limited only by our belief that we have limitations, that we are condemned to a narrow field of possibilities. It requires a conscious expansion of awareness to realize that we have the power to choose from “an infinity of choices” every moment of every day.

To access this awareness we must we willing to let go of the security of the status quo, to take responsibility for past choices, be willing to fail and be willing to succeed.

That may sound like a tall order, but it can all be accomplished by focusing on our vision and politely telling that little voice of fear and doubt to (in the words of my British agent, Angela) bugger off.
