People who eat shit sandwiches (aka living in pain, limits, etc.) aren't CHOOSING it. Not consciously. They're living that way because they don't believe they have a choice.
Spiritual teachers, coaches, etc. of the world: PLEASE STOP TELLING PEOPLE THAT THEY'RE CHOOSING everything. You're not helping when you do that--YOU'RE SHAMING.
And, you clearly don't understand the power of subconscious beliefs, internalized pain, the power of conditioning, even stuff we bring in from past lives, family generational wounds, I could go on and on
No one is CHOOSING a miserable existence full of pain, we're programmed that way. ONLY WHEN YOU MAKE THE UNCONSCIOUS CONSCIOUS do you have ANY kind of choice. Carl Jung said that, and I say that too. Because I've experienced it.
