You just made a choice.
The dictionary defines choice as “the act of making a selection” and I want to use this message drill down on that idea, especially about how you choose to start the Next Day.
EVERY CHOICE MUST have a purpose: to improve your situation, and move you closer to a positive end goal.
Some people claim that you must “play the hand that life deals.”
But you build that hand largely from a deck of your own choices, and your hand improves as your choices improve.
The fact is…every choice counts. There are no insignificant choices, no neutral actions.
Even the smallest decision has a bottom-line consequence, leading you toward or away from a positive end goal.
There is no standing still. There is no such thing as staying the same.
Therefore, everything choice you make, and action you take today and tomorrow…compliments or comprises. impresses or disappoints. builds up or tears down. advances or retreats. turns on or turns off. adds or subtracts. nothing is neutral.
Every decision has a direction, which moves you one step closer to, or one step further from your goals.
That means if you’re not gaining ground in 2015.
You’ll be losing ground.
