True priorities

What are your true priorities? Take a look around and you’ll clearly see.

The reality of your life is a result of the priorities you’ve chosen. Consider where those priorities have brought you.

Yes, of course there are many factors beyond your control. Even so, the way you respond to life’s ups and downs is what determines where you go.

Your priorities are not necessarily what you say they are. Your priorities are best evidenced by the way you live, moment by moment, day by day.

If you’re pleased with where those priorities have brought you, then you’ll surely want to hold on to them. If you know that things could be better, a positive change in your priorities will reliably get you there.

Either way, your priorities are yours to choose at any moment by the actions you take. And the way you choose to live them can make all the difference in the world.
