Continue your choices

A single positive choice is one step in the right direction. For that one step to have any lasting consequence, you must continue to add to it.

Whatever success you seek will not magically spring from just one choice. Success is built upon many, many choices that all support and enable each other.

Choose a healthy, nutritious breakfast, and follow that choice with a nutritious lunch and dinner. Then continue your healthy choices the next day, and the next, and make those choices a continuing part of your life.

Choose to show up on time and do more than is asked of you, then make that choice again, week after week, month after month. Give power to each positive choice by carrying it with you as you move steadily into the future.

As you follow through with each choice, feel its immediate benefits and envision its long-term value. Right then and there, inspire yourself, commit yourself to making that choice again.

Continue to link your positive choices, another upon another. What you’ve chosen before, you can choose again, giving your choices the power to bear magnificent fruit.

— Ralph Marston
