Always More Choices

It’s easy to say it, and at first maybe not difficult to believe.

There are always more choices available to us in any given situation than we are or even can be aware of.

In my counseling work, I’ll sometimes say “Start giving me a list of all the choices you’ve got here.” Then I’ll urge them on, “Give me some more, give me some more.” They’ll get to the point where they say, “well those aren’t realistic.” I don’t want folks here to have to be realistic; what I want is for them to realize there are lots and lots of choices. Most of us know about individual or group ‘brainstorming’ - where initially you don’t censor the list.
