Make it your choice

Let go of the thoughts that you need to do, that you need to have, and that you need to be this or that. Embrace the opportunities to choose to do, choose to have, and choose to be.

If you’re constantly catching up with your needs, you’re operating from a perspective of weakness. Instead, see the tasks, commitments and responsibilities as things you have chosen, and give your life the positive power it deserves.

From all the available possibilities, your choices have brought you to where you are today. Going forward, your choices can take you where you wish to go.

Don’t discourage or frustrate yourself by seeing yourself as burdened with needs. Make it your intentional choice to do what you do, and discover your true power and effectiveness.

Put energy, joy and satisfaction into your work by choosing to get it done. Add great value to your relationships, your commitments and responsibilities by choosing to honor them with the way you live.

Don’t let the perception of need enslave you. Allow the reality of your positive choices to give the power of purpose to all you do.

— Ralph Marston
