Options. We like having them. It gives us this false illusion of abundance - as if there is ‘plenty’ of a thing. And sometimes the more options we have, the harder it becomes to commit to something or someone, because 1 sounds a lot more limiting than 10 or 20. In this day and age we are all bombarded with options, we have options in love & romance, options in career, countries where you could see yourself living in, clothes to wear, food to choose from a menu. So naturally you’d think this should make our lives easier and lead to greater fulfilment? Well..WRONG. You know what the psychology is of having options? The more options you have, the less fulfilment you’re going to get from anything you choose. Because your mind will always go: But I could have this, and have that..so you’re never settled in any of your choices as you’re too busy wondering whether you made the wrong choice or whether something or someone better is just around the corner. This is what we call a ‘mindfuck’, which I think should be a clinically acceptable term.
The truth is, fulfilment doesn’t exist as a byproduct of options, fulfilment is reflective of how aligned you are with your Truth. When you live intuitively you don’t have multiple options, you only have 1, because you know exactly what feels True to you, everything else won’t even be worthy of your consideration.
So less options equals greater satisfaction.
You know what reduces options, and increases one’s level of fulfilment? Complete commitment to 1 choice. Think about it.
