Ropes Part 1- My Choice

It's MY choice! Yes!
I had the most amazing time at Ropes with my goal attainment class. I am dividing my experience into a few posts.

We were encouraged to bring with us our biggest limiting belief. I did my work and took with me the following, "I have no agency." I have been a grand promoter my whole life of the concept there is always a choice. Isn't it ironic that many of our deepest beliefs are exactly opposite of our greatest causes?

My dear friend and facilitator taught me that it's really a victim mentality. "If I don't choose this and I just do it then it's their fault. After all I was just along for the ride." How much more powerful is it to actually choose into things, or out of them? I get to be accountable. The reality is we are accountable for our actions, including not fully choosing, whether we want to be or not, so why not choose in?

I took back my power! I got to create a power pose. As I stomp my foot and swing my arm into position I say, "Yes!" I can also say, "No!" Taking a conscious effort to choose each activity was so empowering! If you see me on the street doing this you'll know I'm making a conscious choice. :)

Some activities required us to wear harnesses. As soon as I declared yes I immediately was next in the harness. Isn't that how our lives would flow the best? Choose in and then go for it!

In future posts I will share what happened when I chose no, what happened when I didn't choose 100% and maybe even what happened when I waited to choose. :)

With love and light!
Michele

  1. "Choosing 100%" ... ah how powerful is that?!

    Way too often we find we 'go along for the ride' rather than taking those few seconds to make a choice.

    And of course, waiting (or in my case, procrastination) is as much a choice as yes or no but a lot of times I forget that.

    I've never heard of 'Ropes', Michele, but it sounds incredibly powerful.

    I'm looking forward to this series.

    More power to you, girlfriend.

    1. Jacqui,

      Thank you. Ropes is an obstacle course kind of thing. A day of learning experiences beyond belief.

      We always make choices even when we just ride or like you mentioned procrastinate. It's a much more powerful way to live when we consciously choose yes or no.

      Much love to you!
