If your wishes are pure, then they become true. – Mahatma Gandhi

And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. – Paulo Coelho

What is the single force that controls the quality of your life? There is one gift our Creator has given us. What is the one power that we all have that can change everything? And I know you know the answer.

The power of choice.

A choice is when you cut off any other possibility and you commit to something with everything you have and take action.

Going forward I will be writing more posts on how the choices we make impact our DAILY existence. Commuting to college, I spent many hours listening to Tony Robbins audiobooks. A key lesson I learned was success without fulfilment is the ultimate failure.

As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. (NIV, James 2:26)

Everything that happens in your life. Things you’re thrilled with and what you’re challenged by began with a decision.

Old Life or New LifeYour life is the outcome of the decisions you’ve made and the actions you’ve taken as a result of those decisions. Different decisions produce different results. If you want to control the direction of your life, you must consistently make good decisions.

It’s not what you do once in a while that has an impact on the direction of your life—it’s what you do consistently.

Make decisions today about how you are going to live in the years to come. For your decisions to really make a difference in your life it’s imperative to decide what results you’re committed to and know specifically how these results will transform your life. It’s equally critical to decide what kind of person you’re committed to becoming.

Get clear about what you want to be, do and have, and what your life will be like after you accomplish this. With that clarity, you’ll find it becomes easier to make the kinds of decisions that will move you in the direction you desire. What are your standards? What will you demand from life? Decide today if you’ll accept life as it is or if you’ll live your life on your own terms, at the edge and at the highest level.
