I Choose Me

Are there times when you doubted your abilities, questioned whether you have what it takes to succeed, worried about potential failure or feared taking accountability for your actions? Are you wondering if this 21-day choice challenge will help you make real change or that you have the ability to stick with it?

If you are not happy with an aspect of your life and there are things you want to change, this challenge is for you.

Understand that self-doubt is a common experience, and you are not alone in feeling this way.  I was there with all of them.  I was not happy with my life. I knew something had to change, but I was not sure what.  I committed to focus on me, to really becoming aware of all the choices I was making, to evaluate if they were the right ones, and to take action to choose wisely.  The better I got at understanding my choices and why I was making them, the easier it got to automatically make the right choice OR catch myself quickly when I was starting to make the wrong one.  You were born with the ability to choose, now we want to empower you with the confidence and ability to choose wisely. 

If you don’t like something in your life.  Start making different choices. No one else can do it for you.

You are enough. Everything you need to be successful is already within you: untapped potential, talents, and capabilities are waiting to be unleashed with the right focus. Embrace your strengths, talents, and unique qualities, you don’t need external validation or approval to feel worthy. Trust that you have the capacity to learn, grow, and overcome challenges and embrace it. Develop a mindset that encourages you to take action towards your goals. Quiet the external noise telling you you can’t and tune into your inner voice to guide you on your journey.

Your Turn: Commit to You, Commit to 21 Days.

Let’s start with knowing you are enough and commit to completing this challenge. You don’t have to be perfect, but you do have to start. Heck, I didn’t get it perfect the first time, but I learned, I got better and continue to get better.   You can repeat these days or topics as often as you need or want.

Become Aware

  • Are you committed to focusing on you?
  • Have you questioned the impact this challenge may have? (these might start with It’s not for me, I already make good choices, or it won’t work)?
  • Have you questioned your ability to finish this challenge?  (these might start with I can’t, I shouldn’t, I don’t know how, or I don’t have time)?
  • Notice any observations (gaps, triggers, patterns, and situations) that tend to hold you back.
  • What negative impact does this / could this have on you?
  • What positive impact could making change have?
  • Acknowledge your (observation) and its (insert impact).  My Example:  I am aware I don’t take enough accountability for my actions, and I do too much finger pointing.

I am aware ______________________ and it is _________________________.

Be Grateful

  • Identify one observation you want to become aware of and use as a reminder to choose better.
  • What is the mindset you want to have once you become aware.
  • Change your perspective, be grateful for (insert observation), because it reminds you to (insert mindset).  My Example:  I am grateful when I realize I am pointing a finger because I can point it right back at me and be accountable.

I am grateful ________________________ because it  __________________________.

Take Action

  • Name an action you will take next time you become aware. My Example: Next time I become aware I will ask myself my role is solving this solution and act accordingly.

Next time I become aware I will  ________________________________________________.
