Conclusions

How often do we come to conclusion?

Pretty much every day, right?  What is a conclusion exactly?  Dictionary definitions include:  “final decision” or “the effect of an act by which the person performing the act is bound not to do anything inconsistent therewith.”

Conclusions might look like this:

There’s an unexpected expense that comes up and we say:  I’ll have to put that on the credit card.  (conclusion:  There is no other possible way for the money to show up.)

Maybe you go to work every day in a job you’re dissatisfied with because you have to make money.  (conclusion:  This job is the only way to generate income.)

You go home to your spouse and say:  I got laid off today, we’ll have to move in with my parents.  (conclusion:  There are no other places to go or ways to make up the loss of income.)

What do conclusions do?

Whenever we come to conclusion about something, we block out all other possibilities that might be available.  We cannot see them EVEN if they are right under our noses…because we’ve concluded that _____ is our ONLY option.

When we conclude X, or even X or Y, as our option, we are locking out the possibility of A or M or V or S being possible.

(Notice in the picture how it only gives 3 choices?  What if there are infinitely more choices in and amongst these 3?  But we can’t see those because we’ve concluded these are the only 3.)

So what’s the big deal?

Well, nothing really.

It’s not a big deal.  It is just a choice.

We can choose to see limitation and limited possibility or we can choose to see infinite possibilities.

It’s just a choice.

What will you choose?

I choose infinite possibilities.  It is way more fun after all.

How does that work?

A simple way to put this to work for you is to ask questions.  Lots of questions.  Questions open up all kinds of possibilities.

Need some ideas?

What else is possible here that I can’t even imagine?

What are the infinite possibilities this can work out better than I ever dreamed?

What’s right about this that I’m not getting?

What choice am I refusing to see in this moment?

Does that help?

It is my desire that these questions facilitate you in seeing more possibilities in life….if that’s what you would like to choose.

Happy living!
