To be careful is to be cautious with one’s actions. Guarded. It implies a fear of something unfavorable occurring.
To be powerful is to exert great force and have a great effect. Powerful is convincing, influential, and effective.
A few years ago, I started using the term choose powerfully as a way to show my conviction. I was making changes in my life’s direction. Choosing powerfully spoke to the choices I wanted to make.
Last week my friend Marnie wrote on her Facebook wall about choices she was making in her life. I encouraged her to choose powerfully.
She commented that she was glad that I didn’t say choose carefully.
When you choose powerfully, you’re exerting force. You’re convincing. You desire a great effect. You’re on offense.
How are you making your choices?
Powerfully or carefully?
Are you on offense or defense?
Thanks, Marnie, for the inspiration for this post.
