Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.

Positively purposeful

Before making a choice of what to think, or say, or do, ask yourself this. What do you seek to accomplish?

The results you obtain are the results you most heavily and repeatedly invest in. So take a moment to be clear with yourself about the results you desire.

It’s easy to get stuck in habitual patterns of thought and action that lead to nothing of value, or worse. You can benefit from calling yourself out on those habits and challenging yourself to be more positively purposeful.

All day long you’re expending energy and using irreplaceable time. You owe it to yourself to make sure it leads to meaningful, life-enriching results.

Rather than doing what you’ve always done, you can be moving toward what you’ve always wanted, or working to support what you’ve always cared about. You can direct your life toward the consequences you prefer.

Harness the enormous power that courses through every moment of the day. Know what you seek to accomplish and you’ll bring about many good results.
