Hi I’m Dan Lier, America’s Coach and today’s success track is about the power of choice and how you can start today and choose the direction of your life and your business.
One of the most impactful principals that I share in my talks is the understanding that what you do and how you respond each and every day is up to you. It’s a choice. A choice is something that you CHOOSE to do. Now I’ll agree with anyone that says circumstances happen and sometimes you run into a series of seemingly “tough breaks”… yet no matter what the situation, all of us have the choice on how to respond, and that’s one of the intangibles that creates success.
Think about it this way; if you and your significant other went out to dinner at one of your favorite restaurants and when you walked in, they let you choose which table you wanted to sit at, I bet you’d feel pretty good about that. What’s interesting, is that we get to choose most things in our life; where we live, what we wear, what we eat, what movie we see, what color of car we drive… it’s a choice.
Here’s what I want you to understand about the power of choice. We all know we cannot control the circumstances and events that happen to us, yet how we respond to what happens is YOUR choice, and HOW you choose to respond will affect the direction of your life.
Two people lose their jobs because of company downsizing, One of those people plays victim and talks about how life isn’t fair, and asks why things like that happen to me, while the other chooses to increase their skills, diversify their talents and use this as an opportunity for a new start. The victim chooses one path and the winner chooses another, and their lives will be impacted as they continue to make choices.
So my message to you today is that success is a choice. We make the decision to be successful or not. Success is not a secret, it’s not a mystery, it’s a choice. We choose what we put into our bodies; we choose how we treat people. We choose if we listen to success talks instead of the radio, we choose what we watch on TV, we choose how much we prepare for our job or career and we choose how we respond to every situation.
Make a decision today to create new success habits. If you need some help, take a look at Napoleon Hill’s book, the Laws of Success, and you’ll find many principles that you can choose to apply to your life starting today.
Great job… I’m Dan Lier America’s Coach and you can make it happen.
