Your Power To Choose
Did you know that at any time, no matter where you are in life, no matter how long you have been a certain way, you can choose to become the person you’ve always wanted to be. You can decide, at any time, to make a change and begin your journey to a happier, more fulfilled you.
First and foremost, you must understand that you have been given a gift that no other living creature possesses. You have been given the power to choose.
Just think about your life for a moment. How did you end up where you are right now at this particular time in your life? The answer is through choices. Your life, as it is right now, is a direct result of the choices you have made up until this point. And your life a year from now, five years from now, or even ten, will be a direct result of choices you make from now until then. That’s why you can decide at any time how you want your life to be and begin working toward your desired goal.
The winners in life are keenly aware of their power to choose. They choose success over failure. They choose happiness over despair. They choose to work toward their goals over being idle because they know that by being idle, they are depriving their families of the food, clothing, and shelter that reaching their goals could afford them. Is it easy? No. But once you make a choice and commit to it, the Universe has a way of aiding you in the things you need to do to make that choice a reality.
And don’t be afraid to start over. One of the biggest excuses people use for not starting over is age. Just because you’re a certain age is no reason to think you can’t `choose’ again. Colonel Sanders didn’t start the famous Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise until he was 62. You can choose to start a new career, write a book, take up an instrument, start exercising, or whatever at any age. What’s stopping you?
You don’t have to be a slave to mental limitations which is the only thing that keeps us from doing many of the things we might want to do. So, if you’re not happy with where you are, make another choice and keep making choices until you’re where you want to be.
