There are two things that are guaranteed in life. Birth and death. Everything else in between is unique to every single person and their circumstances, genetics, interests, and everything else about them. There’s so much out there that could happen but of course it all can’t happen… So what do we do about it?
That’s what this idea B.C.D is. It distills the process of life down into 3 things. Birth. Choices. Death. The quality and activity of your life, what happens between birth and death, is dictated by the choices you make. Choosing what you like and what you don’t. How to feel about this, and what you’re going to do about that. Choosing what people, projects, and passions you want to invest time into. Choosing what you want to prioritize and what you don’t.
It’s all up for grabs and none of it is determined. With free-will we have this gift of choice, and we must use it wisely. We may feel pressured to meet certain expectations or to make certain choices, but letting those forces influence you is also a choice.
The reason this is so impactful is because your choices are more than just arbitrary preferences. They shape your entire life by influencing your behavior, environments, and time availability. Choosing to say 'yes' to something ripples into countless other areas of your life. A big decision like deciding to move to a new city puts a strain on past relationships but opens the door to growing new ones. Or small decisions like choosing to exercise consistently slowly compound into having a healthy future.
We’re born. We make many, many choices, then we die. Our life is determined by the choices we make. So my question to you becomes - Are you choosing how you’re living, or are you just letting life choose for you?
You’re probably making better choices than you’re giving yourself credit for. But if you feel pulled to step up your game, if you’re being honest with yourself and you know there’s more inside of you but you don’t know what to do next to make it reality, I’m starting to think about putting together some private self-improvement sessions where I show you in a very hands on way how to start transforming your life. I'm calling it a "3 Day Self Growth Sprint" and I'd love for you to be a part of it!
