THE 3 C’S IN LIFE:  CHOICES, CHANCES, CHANGES.  You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.

EXPLORE WHAT’S POSSIBLE

  • Reflect on the possibilities & write down your ideas

  • Note your talents and potential

  • Also note your non-talents

  • Brainstorm ideas without judgement.

  • Remember, money is not a concern.  That’s judgement thinking.


DEFINE YOUR OPTIONS

  • Think through each idea as a unique scenario. Create several scenarios.

  • Be willing to pivot.  Don’t hold onto strategies that don’t serve your vision.

  • In your gut – again no judgement – what will work?  What will not?

  • Begin to rank your options.

 


MAKE A CHOICE

  • Know what inspires you & what idea will sustain you, emotionally, when you question your decision.

  • Prioritize your options and pick your best idea.

  • Decide on 1st and 2nd steps.  Get moving.


MAKE THE CHANGE

  • Name the risk…Embrace the risk…Or lose the chance.

 


“May the choices reflect your hopes and not

                             your fears.”
