We create our life by pursuing interests that drive us and by our reaction to the events that happen to us—both of which we get to choose. – James B. Rosseau, Sr.
We are created as free will beings and have the opportunity to choose the paths that we take. Choose the ultimate outcomes you want, then consciously make decisions in alignment with those outcomes. To be clear, that will also mean it will not always feel good as we often must forego short-term gratification.
Realize that we are making “choices” on a daily, even hourly basis, that change the direction and trajectory of our life. Choose consciously.
