Change is all about choice. Happiness is a choice; being miserable is a choice. Success is a choice. Civility is a choice. Leadership is a choice.
If you think that change takes a long time, you are wrong. What takes a long time is THINKING about change and TALKING about change. But, when you make a CHOICE, a decision to do something differently, you have already changed.
Making choices and decisions for yourself is what creates the life you have. Stephen Covey put it bluntly when he said, “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
Circumstances are on the outside - you cannot always control that. Choices and decisions are on the inside - THAT is what you have control over. What you CHOOSE determines what you get.
If you disagree, you may be giving your power away way too often. It is time to value yourself more!
Get clarity of what you have to offer the world - and run with it! Make choices and decisions that bring the best YOU to the table every single day.
When you being to do that, those outside circumstances begin to change - the environment is different, the people are different, and the outcomes are different.
It all starts with you...
