Top priority

You are already highly successful at achieving your true priorities. If you’re not happy with what that success has brought into your life, you can change those priorities.

Your true priorities are not based on what you say they are, or on what you might like for them to be. Your true priorities are the ones you give your time and effort to act upon.

If something is important enough to you, you’ll find a way to make it happen. Look around at your life, at what you’ve made happen, and you’ll see a clear picture of what has been important to you up to this point in time.

If you look around at your situation and don’t like everything you see, change your priorities. The way to change those priorities is not merely with what you say or think or plan or hope, although your thoughts and hopes and plans can give you good direction.

Ultimately, though, to truly adopt new, more positive and enriching priorities, you must act on them. Every little moment of every day gives you an opportunity to do so.

Whatever you desire will most assuredly be yours when you make it a top priority. Right now is when you can do precisely that.
