Priorities

What do you want out of life? What are you doing to make it a reality? Are you cruising along on autopilot, doing things out of habit? Or are you making conscious decisions, staying focused on what is really important, and being true to your priorities?

Life is lived in small increments, moment by moment. Each moment may not seem like much, yet it is the basic building block of successful, purposeful living. Look at every action you take. Listen to every thought you think. Are they leading you where you want to go? Are they in line with your priorities?

Anything can be achieved through focused, determined effort and commitment. If your life is not what you want it to be, you have the power to change it, and you must make the changes on a moment by moment basis. Live with your priorities. Live with your dreams. Live with your goals and your plan of action. Live each moment with your priorities in mind. Act with your own purpose, and you will have the life you want.
