12. You always have a choice.

One of the common traps we fall into is the mistaken belief that we have no choice when we actually do. It may not be the choice we want, it may not be the choice we prefer, but it’s nonetheless a choice.

We waste so much time and energy bemoaning the choices we don’t have. It would be so much better if we simply exercised the choices we do have.

What’s the next best step you can take? Take that step.

If that step turns out not to be so great, no worries. Simply take the next best step after that. There’s always a next best step you can take. Always.
