“You are always only one choice away from changing your life.” –Mary Blochowiak
I came across this quote yesterday in an email and I have to say, it has changed me. Just imagine. Think about this concept. You are one choice away from changing your entire life’s direction. ONE CHOICE. If you reflect upon your life, you’ve come to where you are through a series of choices, no doubt. But each one of our long and windy paths started with one choice. A single choice. And if this concept seems too abstract, let me give you an example very apropos to this week…. You are on a business trip, sitting at the bar in a strange country. A man propositions you to go up to his room. Your answer at that moment, that yes or no, that ONE CHOICE, could change your life.
So, now that you see the power of one choice, what would your life-changing choice be? Think then about how in control you are of your life. Powerful stuff. So what this means in essence, is one choice, just one, can change your life forever. Your life up until today is a result of a series of choices you have made. But the person you will be tomorrow, is still up to you, in your hands. With NEW CHOICES, you can actually change your path, change your direction. And you can do that today, April 15th, 2010. How incredibly encouraging. How hopeful and optimistic for the future, regardless of where you’ve come from. That means that should you be a struggling alcoholic for the past 25 years, your one decision today to stop drinking, could change your entire path. (more…)
