Announcer: The following minute is brought to you by Relationship Excellence dot com.
Owen Williams: Welcome to The Relationship Minute. I'm Owen Williams.
Owen Williams: We always have a choice. Have you ever said to someone, "I didn't have a choice. I had to do it" whatever 'it' is?
Owen Williams: We always have a choice in all that we do and say and all that we don't do or don't say. However, there are times when we don't believe we have a choice. Perhaps it isn't clear to us. Perhaps we're conflicted and stuck. Perhaps the choice simply isn't one that we like – so we tell ourselves that we don't have a choice. I recall a friend telling me that he was held up at gunpoint and didn't have a choice but to hand over his wallet. Oh, he had a choice… He could have hung on to his wallet and risked losing his life. Not a choice he wanted to make. And so ultimately a good choice to hand it over. So where do you think you don't have a choice and have to do something? It's a good place to look.
Owen Williams: Thank you for taking The Relationship Minute and remember it's later than you think.
