Do you have a dream, a vision, a goal that you’ve always wanted to accomplish? Are you unhappy with where you are right now? Is there something you want to change-maybe your weight, your home, your income or your career?
I have good news for you: You can change. You always have a choice.
The power of choice is a wonderful gift we have all been blessed with. You can choose to change or not to change. Either way, the choice is up to you.
Sometimes people say, “I’ve tried to diet and I can’t lose weight,” or “No matter what I do, I can’t get ahead.” They complain that they can’t get out of a job or a relationship or a bad habit. They feel stuck. But they’re not stuck. None of us are.
No one else is choosing for you. No one else is running your show. You create your own life every day with the choices you make.
A lot of people don’t realize it, but with each statement we make about who we are, where we are, and what we want to do, we’re making a choice. Whether it’s about success or lack of success, wealth or lack of wealth, a home or lack of a home, we make statements that reinforce our choices and bring them into our lives.
Think of it this way. If every time you try to open a new jar, you say to yourself, “I can never open these new jars!” then you’re right. You never will be able to open a new jar. But if you say, “One of these days, I’m going to be able to open a new jar!” you’ll be right about that too.
It’s the same way with the bigger things in your life. If there are things you’d like to change, that’s great.
Life is designed to challenge you to take charge of the choices you make. It may seem hard to imagine right at this moment, but you can change your life. It’s entirely up to you. You can get rid of old habits, eliminate stuck places, change unwanted situations and give yourself permission to achieve great things in your life.
Where do you want to be in your life? How do you want to feel about yourself when you look in the mirror? Would you rather be in a job you love? Would you rather be making more money? Would you rather be healthy, happy and fit? You can be. No one’s stopping you! The choice is yours.
You are right where you have chosen to be right now. Let me repeat that. You are right where you have chosen to be right now. What was your choice? Now that you see how it turned out, is it what you want? Or do you want to change it?
You’ve been blessed with a wonderful gift: the power of choice. There is a book titled “Power to Change” that will help you recognize how the choices you make every day are continually creating the life you have right now. It will show you how to change your self-talk to create changes in your life. And once you have mastered these principles, once you’ve proven to yourself that you really do have a choice, you’ll know that you don’t have to settle for mediocre any more. You can dare to dream.
Are you choosing to be average or are you choosing to be spectacular? Are you choosing to be good or are you choosing to be great? You always have a choice.
