There have been lots of “Happy New Year” wishes tossed about in the last few days.
And we all mean to “wish” for a Happy New Year.
But wishing and hoping aren’t strategies, are they?
The happiness of your New Year will be the result of the choices you’ve made up until this point and in the choices you’ll make in the year ahead.
We make thousands of choices every day and tens of thousands of choices every month. Some may seem insignificant and some appear more important—but THEY ALL COUNT! They all add up.
Sure there are some things that happen to us that are outside of our control. But our response to those things IS in our control. And most everything else is within our power.
Because we have the power of choice.
We choose what to do with every precious hour of our life. Oh no, you might say. “I HAVE to go to work.” “I HAVE to make money, feed the kids, go to church, take out the trash,” etc.
No, you don’t. With the exception of a few bodily functions, you CHOOSE to do—or not do—everything.
It might SEEM like you have to, but you don’t.
Our lives are the result of the choices we have made and will make in the days and months ahead.
And that’s our theme for January 2013—Choices!
Look for supporting articles, quotes, trainings, tools and strategies for choosing wisely.
