How Is Your Seesaw Tipped?

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is therefore not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle

Your ability or inability to make a decision or do something worthwhile is not an accident. It is a result of who you have been becoming. The seesaw of your habits lies in whether you weight your life decisions on your fears or on your abilities. The state of that seesaw is what predicts your decision making.

Perhaps there is something you perceive as risky. Could it be that your perception is a direct result of how you have tipped your seesaw? If you have chosen the easy way or given into your fears and guised it in some virtuous story, then you will have to counterbalance all those decisions one day to do anything different. It will become harder and you will perceive more risk in such decisions than the person who has made choices on their abilities.

My business coaching clients range in their life seesaw. It is amazing to see people start the journey to tip it back towards their abilities. It takes a lot of work, but when that seesaw starts to tip back, their belief and freedom to make their dreams happen become less hindered. They are pursuing excellence rather than fear. They are choosing to become their dream rather than exist in their resignation. You are who you have been becoming. Who have you been becoming?
