Ep #15: Choosing Vs. Deciding


February 5, 2020

Today we want to talk about the difference between choosing and deciding. These words get used interchangeably most of the time, but there is a real distinction energetically when you choose to do something versus when you decide to do it. You know by now that the energy + intention you show up with are the real forces that shape your life, so it’s key for you to understand the difference between these two words.

All three of us see “deciding” as an either/or situation. You feel like you have to pick one thing and completely give up the other. But we’ve found that coming at life from this angle breeds a lot of angst and story-telling that makes everything harder. But when we choose to do things, we step into our curiosity, our freedom, and our power.

In this episode, we’re diving deep into the nuances of choosing vs. deciding and explaining how this impacts your life. We’ll share some of our own stories and experiences with the “deciding” mindset and why choosing makes us feel so much more empowered. And, we’ll talk about why we try not to tell ourselves that we “have to” do anything.


What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • How we define and experience decision and choice, and why we prefer the latter.
  • Why so many of us fall back on the binary either/or mindset when making decisions.
  • How we can step into a choice-driven mindset when we are asked to make decisions or change our plans.
  • Why it can be useful to remind yourself that you really don’t have to do anything (even though we know that sounds crazy).
  • What you can do to bring more sovereignty and personal power to your life and the things you choose to do with it.
