We tend to underestimate our decisions and where they could lead us in life.
A tiny change of habit can compound over time and create a life changing transformation.
Tony Robbins once said, “The decisions we make control us much more than the conditions we meet.”
Yet, we typically allow our conditions to write the script of our lives.
We let fear and other people’s opinions influence our choices, and believe it or not, enabling our circumstances to dictate who we are and how we live is a decision in and of itself.
Years ago when I was first pursuing entrepreneurship, my business partner and I reached a point where we were nearly out of money.
We had a vital decision to make at that pivotal moment. We could’ve thrown in the towel and given up but we stuck with it and found the light at the end of the tunnel.
That choice, amongst others, drastically impacted the trajectory of my life and it’s uncertain where I’d be today and who I’d become had we not battled it out.
There’s way more things out of our control in this world than what we do have some influence on.
One extremely potent aspect in our control are our decisions.
It doesn’t matter what you seek, whether it be a better career and having more money, developing your character and personal qualities, or attaining peace and joy, if you’re blessed to have woken up today with the precious gift of life and have health, energy and a sound body and mind (and are reading these words), then you have the uniquely human potential to take control of your life decisions and invest in yourself for a better tomorrow.
Paint the portrait of your destiny through the power of your choices.
