What kind of life

There’s a clear and simple question that can quickly put things in perspective. How do you want your life to be?

When faced with a major or minor decision, when choosing among the available alternatives, it pays to keep this in mind. The choices you make, minute by minute, day by day, largely determine the life you live.

Yes, many things are beyond your control. Yet even with those things beyond your control you can choose how to live within their framework. And your choices can make all the difference in the world. So how do you want your life to be?

Are you moving in that direction with the choices you make in each moment? Or are you ignoring your own power to choose and counting on some stroke of incredible luck to rescue you?

Your life can be whatever you imagine. Just make the choices that will take you there.

— Ralph Marston
