Teaching universal, timeless, and biblical-based principles that serve as a compass in making wise choices for improving people's lives.
The Apostle Paul struggled in the same way we all do today. A review of Paul's struggle also shows a glimpse into what neuroscience has discovered. Paul states that there is "another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind". The emotional (limbic) parts of the brain are at war against the logic (neocortex) at the point of all decision-making.
Read Paul's dilemma below. Then, click on the image to the left to listen to an old comedy skit by Flip Wilson. While the skit is comical, the struggle Paul and the rest of us face is real. We have solutions.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.
The process for change is the same for everyone. Whether the goal is to live by a budget or end an addiction, every goal requires you to make wise choices.
Regardless of the issue you or your agency faces, the bottom line for success is the ability to make wise choices going forward. The Next Wise Choice curriculum and Choice Cards aid in making that process more attainable.
Success is simply a snapshot in time. A person can be on the road toward change but one choice moves them closer to or away from a goal. Just as one choice can take a person off the path toward their success, one choice can put them back onto that path, taking the guilt and shame out of the choices we make. Success that endures the hard times requires accountability to one wise choice after another.
Eight principles make up the anatomy of a choice. We offer training on the eight principles or a deep dive into any one of the principles. Request a workshop, training or 1:1 coaching to learn more about applying these principles. Engaging and relatable lessons help to carve the concepts into the brain while overriding old belief systems and generating new neuropathways where truth challenges unwise choices.
