Choose Wisely – Week 22

I am living the life I have chosen. Every choice I have ever made has led me to this moment today here on planet earth. Every minute of everyday choices are made. Where to spend our time. Where to work. To watch TV or to seek adventure?  We choose who to love. We choose our circle of friends. Choose what mood to be in. We choose our feelings towards someone or something.

Og Mandino writes, in The Greatest Salesman in the World, “Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; Strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts.” He continues….

“If I feel depressed I will sing.”

“If I feel sad I will laugh.”

“If I feel ill I will double my labor.”

“If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.”

“If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.”

“If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.”

“If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.”

“If I feel incompetent I will remember past success.”

“If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.”

You can choose to sit back and wander aimlessly and let your thoughts control your actions.

OR…..

You can choose what actions to take and go after what you want.

I choose to be in the drivers seat of my own personal success.

What will you choose?
