“Limited options are nonetheless options all the same.” #bgdtcoaching.
That even limited options require a decision, or at least an element of selection, on our part is evident. After all, to some extent or other we are always faced with choices and our progress depends heavily on what we select each step of the way.
Recalling moments in our past when indeed our options were limited, I wonder now if we can bring to mind how we coped then. That we coped is clear as we are here to tell the tale today. We may have decided no option is perfect so plumped for the path of least resistance.
Alternatively the moment could have caused us anguish and upset. At a certain point the limited options possibly transformed into no options and so we figuratively crossed our fingers and pushed forward into the unknown.
Whatever our strategy for dealing with limited options then, today is a new day as the saying goes. We face challenges now with the benefit of our experiences and so although limited options might still be unsettling, they need not stop us from striding onwards towards our goals.
And so yes, limited options are nonetheless options all the same, hence we should not feel completely deprived of choices especially if confronting a testing situation right now.
