the best you can do

What if you could live in a world where there were no mistakes?   What would that look like for you?

What if, starting today you could start viewing the world from the perspective that everyone, every second of every day is doing the best that they can?   What would you think of that statement?

You might think based on the ills of the world that people, bad people could do better.   However in the milliseconds it takes to make a choice based on what a person is facing the choice they make might just be the best choice they have. 

When we look at mistakes we are stepping back into the past, a past that can not be changed all that exists is the present moment.   From thought to thought, from action to action, each moment is what it is.   There is no right or wrong in that moment, it just is what it is.  

That idea might be hard to grasp for many people, but when you wrestle with it and look at it from all angles, you’ll find that in a moment, a flash of a moment our actions are a result of who we are at that single moment.   Whatever it is, happens.   Now that doesn’t mean for things that are illegal or improper that there won’t be consequences that have to be paid, but in that split second of a moment a decision was made, a choice was made and that appeared to be the best choice given the information and conditions that existed at that time.

It might not mean that if someone else had to make that same choice that the decision would be different, it just means the decision that was made was the best for that brief moment in time.  

If you remove judgment from the equation and look at the event as just that an event, a new reality unfolds. 

What would be different in your life if you didn’t regard decisions that didn’t work as a mistake, but rather an opportunity to learn from?   There would be no need to beat up yourself about the issue, learn, go and grow.   Make the changes and when that same decision comes up again you can respond differently.

How would the ability to let go of judgment impact your life?

“As you begin to take action toward the fulfillment of your goals and dreams, you must realize that not every action will be perfect. Not every action will produce the desired result. Not every action will work. ”
