Consequences are the result of your choices. Every choice has a positive or a negative impact on you and how you experience any given situation. When we choose to re-act from a place of fear or anger, our result is typically one with an uncomfortable or negative impact.
When we choose to act and respond from a place of understanding and awareness, the result is typically one with a positive impact. Regardless of the outcome, taking full ownership and responsibility for the consequences of one’s actions and responses BEFORE they are acted upon leaves a person empowered. Reacting from a place of ego and ignorance ensures the outcome of dis-empowerment.
Next time you are faced with a difficult decision, take a moment to think through the consequences of your choice before you re-act or respond and you will move forward from a place of peace not guilt.
Consequence is a powerful coaching conversation and I invite you to have that conversation with me.
