The Key Principle to make Powerful Choices

I have one firm belief that was drilled into my head by my mother: You can achieve whatever you choose to! It is true. Here are some facts:

Wherever you are right now, is because you chose to be there (even if situations went sour on you and you feel like a victim of circumstances, go back far enough and you will see that choices brought you to where you were).

Whatever you choose to do, you can do. Even if you are far down a road you don’t want to be on, you can make choices, though they may be hard, to change direction.

With that in mind, let’s talk about the coming years of your life. Are you where you want to be? If so, great. If not, then understand this: Your choices got you to where you are and they can take you to where you want to be! That is powerful if we look at it in the positive!

Here are a couple of examples:

You earn what you choose to. Don’t like your pay? Choose a different profession! I have long said that anybody can make $150,000 a year guaranteed, if they want to. They can quit their job, finish college and go to medical school. “But that would take years,” you say? I never said your choice would be easy – just possible! The point is, you CAN do it. You no longer have to be the victim!

You spend your time the way you choose to. “But I have no time,” you say? No, you have as much time as any sports hero, business leader or president of a country – 24 hours a day! Imagine that, you have as much time as those people who shape the world. What is the difference? It is in how we choose to spend and prioritize our time. You can do whatever you choose to, and live whatever kind of life you desire, if you choose to reprioritize your time and how you spend it! That is so freeing!

There are many more examples I could give but I want to give you the key principle and then some questions to spur you on to make powerful choices that will shape your life. Take some time to go through these and begin to make the choices you need to live the kind of life you want to!

Key Principle: We must take responsibility for our life and understand that we can, and will, achieve whatever we ourselves choose to.

Q. What kind of income will you choose to have in the next 5 years? What will you do, what specific action will you take, to make that choice?

Q. What career will you have in the next 5 years? What will you do, what specific action will you take, to make that choice?

Q. What kind of family life will you have in the next 5 years? What will you do, what specific action will you take, to make that choice?

Q. What kind of emotional and intellectual state will you be in for the next 5 years? What will you do, what specific action will you take, to make that choice?

Q. What kind of spiritual state will you be in for the next 5 years? What will you do, what specific action will you take, to make that choice?

Q. What will be your physical state of being for the next 5 years? What will you do, what specific action will you take, to make that choice?

Remember, you can achieve whatever you choose to – and you do!

Until next time,
