When we assert our will, we are actually flexing the muscle of our intention. We do this through the exercise of choice making. Since we are making choices constantly throughout our day, we have plenty of opportunities to exercise our will. With each choice we make, we lay the foundation for our future. If we want to create a fantastic future, we need to make responsible choices. But if we do not recognize that we are even making choices, we won't get very far. Thus the first step in becoming a conscious creator is to become a conscious choice maker.
The more aware we are of the choices we are making, the more empowered we become. For every choice we recognize, we grow in our capacity to direct our life. Our fate hinges on the amount of responsibility we assume for them. Remember, we are creating our experiences whether we recognize our choices or not, but we are not likely to manifest anything spectacular until we do.
