The Most Important Choice You Will Ever Make

wallofchina.jpgAs Robert Burns said, “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”. Yes, they do! Even if you have made a terrific, well-thought-out and detailed plan of how you will get from point A to point B in your life, obstacles appear than goals.

You are well on your way to getting everything you want and suddenly, out of no where, this huge brick wall is blocking your path. What to do?

You basically have four choices. You can….

1. Quit. This is the easiest of all the choices. Just throw up your hands and walk away. After all, maybe where you wanted to go wasn’t all that important anyway. Was it?

2. Wait….maybe the wall will just crumble into dust. Then you wont have to worry about it and can proceed with your journey. Well…maybe…but brick walls don’t crumble very easily and they tend to last an awfully long time.

3. Move the wall. Good luck. Walls aren’t easily moved. Trying to move a brick wall will sap your strength….and after you have given it all you’ve got, the wall will still be there.

4. Go around the wall. That might work…unless the wall is as long as the Great Wall of China. It might be a long trip.

Wait…did I say four choices?

Actually there are five choices.

Number five is FIND ANOTHER WAY to Reach Your Goal. When you started going toward your goal, you attempted to anticipate the obstacles and roadblocks you would meet along the way, and plan accordingly.

When you run into an unexpected brick wall, step back and focus on the essence of your goal. Get creative. Look for high ground and access the landscape. There may be an even better road to your goal that you’ve overlooked, and if you can find it you’ll have the wall to thank!

If you have problems being creative or thinking outside the box, there’s probably a Hypnosis tape that will help you get where you want to go.
