Moments of Choice

Debbie Ford, author, motivational speaker, life coach and founder of Integrative Life Coaching promotes the power and impact of choice. Everyday we make infinite small and numerous larger choices. She suggests that the quality of our choices dictates our future and that our future is determined by the choices we are making right now.

How do you make choices? Do you operate on autopilot or do you exercise conscious choice? Do you choose by not choosing? Or let others choose for you?

These ten questions come from Ford’s book The Right Questions: Ten Essential Questions to Guide you to an Extraordinary Life. They offer support and structure for conscious decision making.
