Your outcomes will be the result of your choices, but what kind of choices might you be making? Will you let inertia get in the way, or will you make bold choices to step forward? Are you looking for a life of ease, or are you willing to step in and do the hard things others aren’t willing to do? Are you going to be afraid of criticism, or will you step out of your circumstances and create a reality that only the brave can follow? Will you use your sharp tongue to hurt people, because people might laugh at your joke, or might you choose instead to be kind?

These are all the kinds of choices that we have the opportunity to look at every day. And the results we’re going to create will be that sum total of the choices we make every day.

If we’re aware at every moment that we’re up to a choice, that will make those choices go so much better. Choose well today and enjoy the day.
