The Power of Choice

Let me begin with a quote from Daily Reflections for Highly Effective People a book by Stephen Covey. The quote for July 8th is: until a person can say deeply & honestly “I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday” that person cannot say “I choose otherwise.”

We all have the power of choice. Whether or not we are aware of this power & how well we use it goes a long way to determining our degree of happiness & success.

Here is a quote from Invictus by William Ernest Henley.
I am master of my fate.
I am the captain of my soul.

We live in the best country in the world. We are surrounded by unlimited opportunity. We can all be masters of our fate & captain of our souls. Life does not happen to us. We can create the future we desire.

How strong is your belief in your ability to choose? At this point in my life my belief is very strong. I honestly can’t say how strong it was years ago. I suspect that my belief has increased greatly in the last 20 years.

I encourage you to increase your belief. I especially encourage you to help young people increase their belief. Life can & should be wonderful. Using our power of choice will help make it happen.
