Someone who cannot see their weaknesses or failures.

“Imagine someone who cannot see their shadows, weaknesses or failures. Someone who thinks they were never wrong and never made a mistake. That is 100% unreasonable. We are human. The definition of human lies in the idea that we learn through experience, and that means we trip, fail, make dumb decisions UNTIL WE LEARN BETTER and grow.

But someone who REFUSES to see and face their failures doesn’t magically become better; they just blind themselves to half of their reality. Half of their identity and existence. This isn’t inspired by arrogance. It’s inspired by pure fear.

People who cannot gather the courage to face their shadow, avoid it because they are fully aware of the secrets that lie there and are hoping that if they don’t address them, then they will never have to admit the horrific reality, guilt, pain, suffering and negativity that lies right beneath the surface of their false persona.

It is a survival mechanism to blame others and avoid facing their own faults because their faults could crush them. If you pull the victim card every time someone tries to hold you accountable how do you ever expect to grow. Don’t fear to heal. All good things happen on the other side of healing.”

There’s a wonderful freedom in being able to admit that you’re wrong or that you don’t know something so go heal yourself and start now from here!

“Once you make a decision, the challenges we face, they are important ones.”

The challenges we face, they are important ones.

We all make choices every day—thousands of them. Most of them seem insignificant, but they all matter.

Whether you turn left or right out of your driveway makes a difference. What you have for lunch—and where you have that lunch—could matter greatly. What you say to your co-worker—or don’t say—makes a difference. Whether you make a phone call—and who you call—could have substantial ramifications.

Everything matters because everything we do—and don’t do—affects everything else. Our success or failure is ultimately determined by the choices we make.

If that’s the case, you would think that choosing wisely would be a valuable skill to learn and improve upon. But I don’t see a lot of instruction or support in making good decisions. Being more conscious of our choices is a great place to start.

In thinking about choices, most people tend to think of the big ones. And certainly there is a difference between choosing which newspaper to buy and whom you will marry. But small things add up. The aggregate of our decisions makes them significant. I can choose to have a second helping at dinner today. And that won’t make much of a difference. But if I do that daily, the result will be added pounds in a fairly short period of time. And seemingly small choices can turn out to be very big indeed. So I think the first step in making good decisions is to be aware that they all matter. And it’s important to realize that we ALWAYS have choices. It might not seem like it, but we do.

We may say we have to go to work or make dinner for the kids, but we are CHOOSING to do these things—whether it feels like it or not. As I look at the freedom and the choices I have available to me today, I realize that it’s mostly because of the good choices I have made and I am very grateful. And if I look at where I DON’T have as much choice, it’s due to the not-so-great choices I made. The better choices we make, the more freedom and choice we will have throughout our lives.

And if we’re paying attention, if we’re thinking, noticing, questioning, contemplating and observing, we will make better choices. They won’t all be right—there’s no way for that to happen. But by being more conscious of our decisions, we will make more helpful than hurtful choices.

Our mission here at Mediums World is to inform, inspire and empower people to be their best—both personally and professionally. We rarely tell you what to do. Our intention is to give you tools, information, share ideas and help you have more insight so you can make better choices.

When selecting your goals, deciding who to spend time with, what to read, watch or support, be sure to honour your choices—and choose wisely.
