No matter what decision you have in front of you, there are only three possible answers: give up, give in, or give it all you’ve got. They all have a place in our lives. The important thing is to know which answer to use when. Here’s my little cheat sheet that’s never failed me:
If what I’m doing doesn’t bring me joy, I give up.
If I’m afraid of moving forward, I give in (and give myself over to the experience.)
If I’ll regret not taking the road ahead of me, even if it seems difficult and frightening, I give it all I’ve got.
Above all, make a choice and stand behind it with conviction. The choice itself is empowering, and it’s yours.
