Simple Truth 3

My Grandson is a star! My sons are brilliant salesmen and I am ready for a great week end.

3. You have the power to choose

If you ever feel sorry for yourself, look around you. There are many more
people worse off than you and most of them have found the courage to carry
on and make the most of what they have got.
Don’t be a passive wimp or victim in this life … you can choose what and
how to be.
We may not be able to control or prevent certain events, but we can
choose how to react to them.
Many people underestimate their personal power and quickly fall into a
dependent relationship with someone or in some extremes everyone. They
become powerless and feel victimised and communicate in “oh, poor me” or
“life’s not fair” messages.
What they don’t realise is that they have responded or reacted rather than
chosen to influence the situation or the way they feel about it. It doesn’t have
to be like this.
You can choose to be happy, healthy and successful.
You can choose to change the way you feel about your life or situation or
change your life! OK, so what about the ‘down and outs’ and homeless?
Somewhere on the way, they made choices that got them there – they now
need help to rediscover their power. What about the mentally ill? Don’t
underestimate their power to choose within what may be a different view of
the world.
What about the differently abled? We can learn about real power from those
who have chosen to shift from disabled to specially abled! What about the
persecuted, tortured, the survivors of disaster? History shows that survivors
somehow chose not to give in – they chose to fight on and made a decision
with determination to live. What do you want to do?
Your choice!
“Every person, all the events of your life, are there because you have drawn
them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.”
