“What Are You Committed To?”
The choices you make determine the quality of your life. You choose what you do for a living, where you live, who your friends are, and how you spend your time and money. Every day you decide when you wake up, what to eat, what to wear, and when to go to sleep. Every day you choose what your attitude is going to be. You choose what you’re going to say and to whom you’ll say it. You choose how you respond to events in your life. You choose what you believe in and what you value.
So many choices! What it comes down to is this:
You choose how you are going to live each and every day, which collectively makes up the weeks, months, and years of your life. Life is a kaleidoscope of never-ending choices. All of these choices, mixed together, are the ingredients of your meal ticket. Whether you serve yourself crash diet portions or a gourmet meal depends entirely on you.
The bottom line is simply this: You choose your own level of success in life. Yes, you!!
So then – what’s your choice? Go ahead and write it down. Are you going to live the life you want or be swayed by the events of everyday living? Only you can decide. I believe this Steven Covey Stimulus and Response Model says it all. We will either choose to be swayed by the events (Stimulus) in our life, or, we will choose our own level of success in our life by being pro-active and understanding that we have the freedom to choose; based on four human endowments: Self-Awareness, Imagination, Conscience, or Independent Will.
Remember: Choice, not change, determines your destiny; as there is no genetic master plan that predisposed some people to succeed and some to fail. The direction your life takes and how high you go is up to you…
