Change Begins with Choice

Change Begins With Choice ~ by Jim Rohn 
"Any day we wish; we can discipline ourselves to change it all. Any day we wish; we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge. Any day we wish; we can start a new activity. Any day we wish; we can start the process of life change. We can do it immediately, or next week, or next month, or next year.  
We can also do nothing. We can pretend rather than perform. And if the idea of having to change ourselves makes us uncomfortable, we can remain as we are. We can choose rest over labor, entertainment over education, delusion over truth, and doubt over confidence. The choices are ours to make. But while we curse the effect, we continue to nourish the cause.  
As Shakespeare uniquely observed, "The fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves." We created our circumstances by our past choices. We have both the ability and the responsibility to make better choices beginning today. Those who are in search of the good life do not need more answers or more time to think things over to reach better conclusions. They need the truth. They need the whole truth. And they need nothing but the truth. 
We cannot allow our errors in judgment, repeated every day, to lead us down the wrong path. We must keep coming back to those basics that make the biggest difference in how our life works out. And then we must make the very choices that will bring life, happiness and joy into our daily lives. And if I may be so bold to offer my last piece of advice for someone seeking and needing to make changes in their life - If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree. You have the ability to totally transform every area in your life - and it all begins with your very own power of choice."

I felt this in my soul. I started to bold my favorite parts but then, it was nearly all in bold. This is a great dose of motivation for me as we head into the weekend and, I hope it was a good dose for you, too. 

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. I absolutely loved the healthy eating but I only started seeing massive results, that I was losing weight when I started drinking this tea called Red tea detox. which was the biggest help to losing weight for me and I’m not the only one thousands of people have been drinking this and have all seen ends to their embarrassing bodies.
