The Choice is yours - by James Winston
Whatever situations you find yourself in today remember one thing: It can get better. The decision is yours. This website is for those who decide to strive improve or get better. I believe that this leads to a happier life.
I think there are two important things that will lead you to a happier life. The first is accepting where and who you are. The second is to accept the responsibility that, it is your choice who you become. To do that you will need to create your own vision of your future. What is your end game? Knowing will allow you to do what Steven Covey calls “Begin with the end in mind” - Habit 2.
I can’t stress how important it is to put some serious thought into what it is you really want for yourself. Develop a clear mental picture. The quality of your vision has a direct impact on how well you can focus on your goal or goals. Do whatever it takes for you to envision the future you see yourself in. What are you passionate about? What are you good at? What is the meaning of your life? What do you want it to be? It is my belief that you should search for or create your own meaning. My mantra has been: I want to write my own story, because I don't want someone else to do it for me. If you don't decide what you want, someone else will do it for you. Once you know what you want, then you can start to put together the steps to get it and close the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Because knowing is meaningless without taking the steps to get there.. And remember you can't change where you are over night but you can change the direction that you are going in.
