The Choices In Your Life

By Deepak Chopra

You can align yourself with any possibility that comes your way, trusting that win-win is the attitude that life itself has been taking for billions of years. Evolution is win-win, which we can say not out of blind optimism but by referring back to the body. Anything happening inside a cell is either part of its healthy operation or a sign that a correction should take place.

Since we all take our choices very seriously, adopting this new attitude requires a major shift. Today, you can begin with a simple exercise. Sit down for a few minutes and reassess some of the important choices you’ve made over the years.

Take a piece of paper and make two columns labeled “Good Choice” and “Bad Choice.” Under each column, list at least five choices relating to those moments you consider the most memorable and decisive in your life so far – you’ll probably start with turning points shared by most people, but be sure to include private choices that no one knows about except you.

Once you have your list, think of at least one good thing that came out of the bad choices and one bad thing that came out of the good choices. This is an exercise in breaking down labels, getting more in touch with how flexible reality really is.

If you pay attention, you may be able to see that not one but many good things came from your bad decisions while many bad ones are tangled up in your good decisions.

No single decision you ever made has led in a straight line to where you find yourself now. You peeked down some roads and took a few steps before turning back. You followed some roads that came to a dead end and others that got lost at too many intersections.

Ultimately, all roads are connected to all other roads. So break out of the mindset that your life consists of good and bad choices that set your destiny on an unswerving course. Your life is the product of your awareness. Every choice follows from that, and so does every step of growth.


Adapted from The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life, by Deepak Chopra (Harmony Books, 2004).

Deepak Chopra is co-founder of the Chopra Foundation. He explains that, "Every life is a book of secrets ready to be opened," and that the only way to discover the answers to these secrets is to delve inside yourself, and cease to be a mystery to yourself. Only by going to "the still point inside" can you see life as it really is.
