Energize Yourself Into Action

how to move forward with meaningful choices

We tend to focus on the future and the goals we set, losing sight of the present, where the choices that determine our future are made. Unfortunately, this can lead to a monotonous existence that hinders true self-expression and personal growth.

Making choices is the energy that propels us forward in cultivating a true sense of self. The Ef Zin seminars in this Path help you learn how to remain energized in life by recognizing meaningful choices in your everyday experience of living where the multitude of life’s possibilities present themselves.

Our freedom of making personal choices is fundamental to Ef Zin. We are faced with a multitude of options when it comes to the decisions we make, the attitudes we adopt, and the things we choose to pursue or avoid. Each option represents a different possibility and can yield different results. Wise choices are those that lead to meaningful outcomes. Although we are bound to make mistakes, recognizing the possibilities within our choices becomes easier as we learn to evaluate the importance of the experiences that define our lives.

We energize ourselves by making choices and evaluating the meaning our choices create for ourselves and others. We advance in steps as we differentiate our position on our personal learning curve. We need to evaluate the meaning of our learnings from the previous step because these define the choices we make in determining the next. Within the Ef Zin philosophy, there is no direction other than the one we develop for ourselves as we progress from one step to the other,  unfolding the path through the choices we make and the steps we take as we take them.

“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” Aristotle

Our Energize Seminars Offer Insight On

How to recognize meaningful choices.

We believe that in life, we don’t have many choices. It’s not for lack of choices but for lack of meaning that we do not move forward. Learn to see the possibilities that lie in the multitude of choices and initiate forward action.

How to evaluate your choices.

Choices present paths of action that are similar, opposite or contradictory to your true self. Learn to explore the meaning of your choices because the possibilities they hold may hinder or facilitate personal growth.

How to undo an unwise choice.

Mistakes are unavoidable. In evaluating an unwise choice, it is important to focus on the meaning of the results it brought about. You can’t go back, only forward, ensuring your choices align with the learnings about your true self.

Wise choices are about recognizing those alternatives that lead to meaningful possibilities. Of course, as with everything in the Ef Zin approach, we need to examine the qualities of alternatives, not their material expression. There are alternatives with qualities that are similar, opposite or contradictory to who we are. Those similar to us are easy to recognize since they are a reflection of ourselves. Those opposite to us pose a challenge. Our partner may be more adventurous than us and challenge our inclination to avoid unpredictable situations. However, alternatives contradictory to ourselves are more difficult to recognize. For example, you and your lover believe that voicing your opinion is important, but one is more confident in doing so, and the other is not. In this case, you have similar ideals but opposite personality traits. Perhaps you believe that voicing your opinion is important and your lover does not. If so, there is a contradiction in the ideals you hold. Contradictions, especially in the ideas we hold, result in conflict and the only solution is adopting or rejecting the alternative. However, adopting qualities that are contrary to our true self inhibit personal growth.

 Challenge your system of thought in the choices you make as you move forward in your experience of living.

We will make mistakes, but it becomes easier to recognize and cultivate possibilities when we are not afraid of making choices. We become more confident in the choices we make, and in ourselves, by practicing the learnings we gain in the possibilities we develop. We need to sharpen our reasoning, so that the qualities we cultivate can energize our sense of self and develop our true potential.
