The intention of my blog is to enlighten and inspire you with a topic I am passionate about and that you can apply to your personal and professional life. This blog is on Choice, a concept I write about in my book “Stop Whining and Start Winning: The Power of Life’s Choices”. If you like the message, please pass it on.
Zig Ziglar said, “You are free to choose, but the choice you make today will determine what you have, be, and do in the tomorrow of your life.” Every day begins and ends with choices. Your attitude and life literally become the sum total of what you think, feel, who and what you attract, and the choices you make. When you think good, feel good, attract good and choose good, you are more likely to create and get good.
I have heard it said that learning happens by force, by choice, and by being forced to make a choice. Whenever you try and force life or a relationship to work it becomes a grind. Grinding and forcing wears you out. Worn out doesn't work. Surviving is not thriving. Thriving results from being on the right side of your viewing, thinking and doing.
Eventually, everyone sits down at a banquet of consequences for the choices they make. It is this simple. Good choices, good outcomes. Bad choices, bad outcomes. Choice is never neutral.
Every transformation in life begins from the right now of your life; not from your past. There is a reason the rear-view mirror is smaller than the windshield. If you don’t like where you are in the right now of your life, you can choose to change that.
No one’s life is spared a setback, disappointment, or loss. You can choose to use them as an excuse to suffer, blame, or give up and give in; or you can be an over comer. One serves you bitter. The other serves you better.
