Eight Choices that Will Change Your Life Forever
Eight Choices You Can Make Today that Will Change Your Life Forever
by Chris Widener
The direction of our lives is determined by the choices we make every day.
They accumulate and add up to our ultimate destiny. Here are eight choices
you can make - choices that will create for you a life of abundance and
prosperity in all areas of your life.
1. Choose to grow personally.
This sounds simple but many people only wish to grow personally. They
never choose to grow by taking action, such as actually exercising, saving
more money etc. Make a decision today to be a person who is on the never
ending journey of personal growth.
2. Choose to always treat others right.
We come across all sorts of people, many of whom will treat us poorly.
We can choose to treat them right, no matter how they treat us. When the
lie, we will tell the truth. When the cheat, we will play by the rules.
We may get the short end of the stick some times, but in the long-run
we will win. And most importantly, we will be able to sleep at night.
3. Choose to break a bad habit.
Take the biggie first. Tackle it head on. If you dont know what
it is, ask a friend. Then spend every effort you can to break that habit.
Forget about the others, as you will get to them later. Stop smoking,
get out of debt, lose your excess weight. Exercise the power to choose!
4. Choose to work smarter.
Many people I work with feel like they are out of balance. One of the
first things I do is try to find out how much time they are wasting at
work, which makes them work longer, which throws the rest of their life
into chaos. Getting your work done by diligently working in the time you
have will free your life up extraordinarily.
5. Choose to see your work as a way to help others, and not a way to
If you put your heart into helping others, the money will most assuredly
come. Spend time helping others grow and your finances will grow with
6. Choose to become balanced spiritually, emotionally and physically.
Our lives are best when we have these three major areas in balance. Spend
some time cultivating your spirituality, becoming emotionally healthy,
and physically fit.
7. Choose to sow more than you reap.
There are many takers in this world, but our lives will be better as we
become givers. The world will become better as we become givers. Give
away your time, give away your money, give away your love.
8. Choose to get home for dinner more often.
The family is the most important group of people you will ever belong
to. Make a decision today to grow in your relationship with your parents,
siblings, spouse and children. This one choice you will never regret.
