“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves.
The process never ends until we die.
And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”
During this pandemic, you may be struggling with the government- or self-imposed restrictions to keep us safe. Have you become more aware of the freedoms you do enjoy? I have.
In recognition of Independence Day, I encourage you to focus on and celebrate your freedom to choose.
Each day, we make hundreds of choices. We choose when to wake up, what to wear and what to eat. We choose to stay home or go out. We choose who we’ll talk to, what we’ll say and how we’ll say it. We choose what we read, watch and listen to.
We choose love and trust or fear and worry. We choose whether to be optimistic or fatalistic, reflective or reactive, cooperative or combative, grateful or needy, compassionate or judgmental.
When it comes to our goals–like adapting to a new way of working or getting healthy–we make choices that either bring us closer or take us farther away from what we say we want to achieve.
Set an intention today to make smart, conscious choices that support your success.
Wishing you and yours a safe, Happy Independence Day!
