Choosing your consequencesThere are some actions that empower and enrich your life. There are other actions that lead only to regret and disappointment.
There are choices that build value far into the future. There are other choices that seriously compromise your future in the interest of a fleeting, momentary pleasure.
Before each action you take, before each choice you make, ask yourself this question. Will it truly and permanently lift up your life and your world, or will it not?
There's no need to get caught up in labeling things as good or bad or easy or difficult, or even as right or wrong. Look instead at the ultimate consequence of what you choose to do.
The way to do what is good and right is to do what will bring goodness and value. The way to build an empowered and fulfilled life is to make empowering choices.
In every moment, with each thought and action you take, you are choosing your consequences. Take advantage of each opportunity to choose the very best.
