The Gift of Choice

Each of us is free to choose.

It is the choice that controls the chooser. You might feel that you have no choice or that you are stuck in your life. But the truth is you are never stuck.  You always have a choice. A choice to move or not to move. A choice to take action or not to take action. You can choose to see the world as a scary place. Or you can choose to see the world as a place filled with abundance. Be the chooser of the life you want and desire. Do not make choices that give you less than the potential for all you can be.

You can choose to…

Earn more.

Read more.

Think more.

Create more.

Love more.

Be more.

Do more.

Have more.

Ultimately your life choices are yours for the choosing. Will you settle for doing less than you can do? Or will you choose to be MORE in every moment, every hour, everywhere.

Your choices are not measured by your circumstances, your conversations. your justification, your excuses, your explanations, your blaming, your complaining.  But by the actions you choose.Your results are the best measurement by your human progress.

Your greatness is a choice. Your brilliance is a decision. What will you choose? What kind of decisions will you make?

I challenge you to choose what is best for you. Always remember what you are choosing, because it is also choosing you. The greatest rewards are always reserved for those who bring great value to themselves. And the world around them is a result of who and what they have become. Choice is a gift.  Use it wisely and become the best you can be…

    SUCH a powerful concept – beautifully stated in your post, here, Lolly. Free will means we can choose – yet it takes courage to chose to do something different, something risky.

    Our human progress requires that we be present and intentional with our choices. No excuses – just do the right thing, even if that choice is not what is expected!

    Choice is a gift – and YOU are a gift, Lolly. Great post – it created much internal thought & clarity.
