How many times have you heard someone say; “I have to do this or that”? If you’re like me, you hear it often. What does it mean to say; “I have to?” It infers you have no choice, that you are a victim. You do have a choice. When you recognize that you do have a choice you free yourself. In reality our choices do come with consequences. So when you hear someone say; “I have to pay my taxes,” the truth is; “No, you do not.” You, in fact choose to pay your taxes rather than accept the consequence. Accept responsibility for your choices. Recognize your choices. The truth of the matter is there is only one thing in this life over which we have no choice. And it is that as long as you inhabit a body you “have to” take up space. So next time you are tempted to say; “I have to“, stop for just a minute and recognize you choose to do it. Replace “I have to” with “I want to”. Because that is the truth of it.
