What should I do?... The truth about crossroads Pt 2 | Ep 28

Well, welcome to Victory in Mind, the podcast that focuses on practical strategies and solutions in living out our created potential.

Hi [:

Do you recognize if and when you might be at a crossroad?

[:

One: Purpose to have people around you who speak truth, no matter how much you might not want to hear it, but listen.

no matter how uncomfortable. [:

Number three: Purpose to make a decision and make it.

Number four: Purpose to recognize we are all humans. We will have occasion to, and we'll make bad decisions. Live with it. Welcome to the show.

[:

Man, it's so true when the Bible in Proverbs reminds us that our plans will fall apart right in front of us, [00:03:00] if we fail to get good advice. But, if we first seek out multiple counselors, you'll watch your plans succeed. I think the challenge with this is that we may find over time that those who we might surround ourselves with might not be counselors, the voice of truth that we need, when we find ourselves at a major crossroad situation.

So perhaps now is the time to look around and start paying more attention to those who inspire with their character more than their lifestyles. Just because it glitters honey, it ain't gold. Sometimes, the direction, the answers you and I are searching for can be found in the often neglected spaces and faces of those who have seen much and gone through much in life.

t woke enough. Just remember [:

The wisdom of those who have gone before us, their life experiences might shed much, much needed light on crossroads we're considering that might need a second glance or might not even be worth taking. Paying attention in areas we might overlook might be the key we need as we choose which path to take.

[:

Often, we find ourselves at crossroads we were never meant to be in the first place. Or we place such high value and important certain [00:05:00] decisions we feel we must take. However, if, when we are honest with ourselves and look at the details of the decisions we feel we need to make, we may find ourselves chasing pursuits that are better served being postponed or canceled altogether, versus those that are important and impactful for our now and should be addressed within the appointed time.

Life it's filled with difficult decisions, so ease your burden, the burden of those decisions that were never designed to fit into the crossroads space that you might be facing in the first place.

[:

So arm yourself with whatever facts you need to arm yourself with, then, consider the intangibles. People may base their decision on gut instinct, prayer, talking out major life decisions with trusted friends or advisers, and so forth.

rs, often beyond the optimal [:

[00:07:11] And last but not least, purpose to recognize that we are humans. We will have occasion to and will make bad decisions. Live with it. Guys, no one is perfect. Don't let that stop you from chasing a dream, pursuing a course of action that has so many unknowns yet it feels like the right decision to make at that crossroad you face for that specific moment in time.

face that crossroad, make a [:

[00:08:03] Whatever crossroads you find yourself facing today, recognize that you are not alone in facing your crossroads. We all, at some point face them for ourselves. The thing to remind yourself is that you and you alone are the only one who is in the body you inhabit.

With this in mind, are you at a crossroad? You know, that crucial point where a major decision affecting the trajectory of your life must be made. Take charge! Take action and be energized that you sit in the driver's seat! Purpose to make a decision and make it. Purpose to have people around you who speak truth no matter how much you might not want to hear it and listen. Purpose to recognize we are humans. We will make mistakes, bad decisions... live with it. Be honest with yourself as you live with victory in mind.
