An Examination of Choice
Life is about choice. Your life is all about choice. Your life is all about choices and decisions. Your life is about each and every choice and decision that YOU make. In life we all have to make choices and decisions. Each choice and decision that YOU make is important to its outcome. Each choice and decision leads YOU toward your destiny or destination. In life, there is no single right or wrong choice, path or direction. Each choice and decision is yours and yours alone to make. Each decision is freely yours to make and to live with. Each choice and decision made in your life determines a path or the direction that YOU will take in your life. Each choice and decision places YOU in a direction or course in life. Each choice, path or direction that YOU choose, will allow YOU the benefit an experience in life as well. What direction, path or course are YOU taking with your life? If YOU were going on a trip, to determine your direction YOU would need a destination and a tool to get YOU where YOU want to go (GPS, map quest directions or a simple road map). The next step is your starting point and your destination. In life, there are two questions to be answered, where are YOU and where are YOU going? The next questions are, what am I doing with my life, where am I going, how long does it take to get to where I am going and what will it take to get there? Each day a choice and decision is made by YOU. Is yours to change? Each day the choice is made, is yours to grow? Each day the choice is yours to make, is the choice toward commitment? The choice is yours to make a commitment to Self. This choice is a simple commitment made to YOU. Make the choice today to commit to focusing on YOU, developing YOU, Loving YOU, caring for and respecting YOU. Make a choice today, to create balance within your life. Make the choice today to put forth the Effort (to simply Try) to work on those things that YOU know YOU need to work on. Make a commitment to start today. Make a commitment to stick to it and with it. Make a commitment to be consistent today, each day and everyday. The journey in life is all about YOU. Every thought, choice and decision that YOU will make in life is a creation. As the creator of your life what are YOU creating? What are YOU creating with your mind? What are YOU creating with your thoughts? What are YOU creating with your feelings and emotions? What are YOU creating with your actions and activities? Are YOU making a choice to create good? Are YOU making a choice to create positive? Are YOU creating Peace, Love, Joy, Happiness and Harmony? What are YOU creating with your mind? What are YOU creating with your actions? What are YOU creating with your words and activities? What exactly are YOU creating with your life? Today, begin to make each choice that YOU make a choice that leads YOU toward a better life. Begin today to create better thoughts about YOU. Begin to create better thoughts and feelings about your choices and your life. Become determined and committed to creating a better life by making positive choices and decisions within your life. Today, begin to create better choices about what YOU will do, how YOU will behave, how YOU will respond and how YOU will react. The creation of better choices and focus comes directly from your thoughts, your way of thinking, your mind set. Your better thoughts create better words. Your better thoughts create better actions and better thoughts create better activities. Better thought develops from your daily commitment to working on YOU. Begin today to work on the ways in which YOU think, it is a fact that the way in which YOU think will ultimately determine the way that YOU will begin to feel. Today make an effort, choice and a commitment to working on YOU. This simple internal commitment will allow YOU to begin to work on your current mindset, which will allow YOU to work on your thoughts, which will allow YOU to work on your feelings, that will allow YOU to work on manage and control your emotions, which will allow YOU to work on your words actions, behaviors, activities and everything that YOU do on the outside of YOU. This cycle of thinking or mind set will begin to repeat over and over and over again. Begin today to make a choice for change, make a choice that will allow YOU to focus your attention directly on YOU, directly on your thoughts, directly on your feelings, directly on your moods, directly on your emotions, directly on each and every action behavior and directly on your mindset. Make a choice to work on YOU today, each day, everyday one day at a time.
