It is good to be without vices, but it is not good to be without temptations.

Make it your choice

Whatever there is to be done, make it your choice to do it. Rather than resenting that you must do it, or feeling guilty about the fact that you should do it, simply choose to do it.

From all the available possibilities, choose what you know is right. Choose, and put the power and commitment of your intention behind your actions. Choose to do it, and you make yourself vastly more effective. Choose to do it, and be in positive control of your own destiny.

Feeling that you’re forced to do it, or obligated to do it, or that you have no choice, will only weigh you down. So choose to do it and free yourself from those useless burdens.

Choose to do it not because you must, not because you should, but because you know it is best. In every moment, in every situation, make it your choice to do what is best. Make it your choice, and you’ll make it great.

— Ralph Marston
