Shaped by choices

Today you’re presented with an abundance of options. Though much of what happens is out of your control, a sizable part of your life experience is shaped by your choices.

You can focus your thoughts, attention, and efforts over long periods of time to create meaningful value. Or you can choose to chase blithely after every distraction and waste hour upon hour of your precious time.

You can step forward and put forth the effort to do what must be done, bringing about a positive difference for yourself and others. Or you can choose to indefinitely postpone the work until later, getting further behind with each day.

You can choose to offer kindness and authenticity, to build trusting relationships that could last for decades. Or you can choose to alienate yourself with an attitude of arrogance and disdain for others.

You have the option to grow stronger and more disciplined when faced with challenges and difficult situations. Or you can simply give in to temptation and settle for whatever feels good in the moment.

With every choice you make, you can push life in a little bit more of a positive and fulfilling direction. Today is here, and the choices are yours.
