Power of response

You cannot always choose your circumstances, or the events that unfold in your world. Yet in every case what you can choose, must choose, always do choose, is your response.

Today you’ll have multiple opportunities to make that choice. Multiple opportunities to steer life in one direction or another.

If they’re scattered, inconsistent, and without much purpose, your responses are largely wasted. When they’re focused, intentional, positive, those responses will band together and enable great achievement.

Every response matters, because it is part of the overall pattern. Every response matters, because it sets the tone for the next response.

Right now, set before yourself the intention, the commitment to follow a specific positive purpose. Right now, decide to focus all your responses in the direction of that purpose.

You have great power, and it comes to you throughout the day as you respond to whatever life presents. Choose to use that power, in a caring, loving, meaningful way, with each and every response.

— Ralph Marston
