Does our focus determine our destiny?

How does focusing on what we want to become determine our destiny?

This quote put it perfectly.

What are your plans today to become the person you were meant to be?

Does your past prepare you for who you are to become?

Love this quote. How often do we let our past define us? There are many lessons we can learn from our past, but we should never let our past determine who we are or who we want to become.

How has your past prepared you to become the person you were meant to be?

Take control of your choices…become the person you were meant to be

The one thing that we can always control in life is how we respond to the situations and circumstances that life gives us.

What type of person could you become if you took control of how you respond and the decisions you made?

We are not victims

This is such a true principle.  How often do we give people power and control over us and let them influence how we respond or what we think?  People will say and do things that may directly impact us…but the one thing that they cannot take away from us is our ability to choose how we respond.

My choice is to not be a victim…what about you?

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us –
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That’s why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like –
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
– Sheri Rosenthal

The 90/10 principle…THIS CHANGED MY LIFE

I wanted to share a principle with you today that has totally changed my life.  I haven’t always been a motivated, positive thinking kind of guy. I used to be worried, stressed, and even though I tried to hide it, I was always worried about all the bad things that “could” happen to me.

This 90/10 principle was one of the tools that really helped me change my perspective on life, as well as the attitude I approach life with.  This principle does require daily effort and work, but I have seen my life, and the life of my family change as I have developed my ability to notice and then act on this principle.

How could this principle assist you in your life?  I would love to hear your thoughts!

Make a choice each morning…what choice will you make?

What a great quote to start the week.

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” ~ Groucho Marx

How has this thought benefited you?  

For me it gives me an opportunity to make a choice each morning on how I am going to approach the day.
