The Choice to Love, Not Hate »

More and more people, in all parts of the world, are experiencing the wrath and hate of other individuals. There is no “magic wand” that will make people care more about each other. But, it’s time we quit letting these differences control our actions and focus on our similarities. 

The Choice to Help Someone Else »

Having seen hundreds of such examples this Christmas season, we would now like to challenge YOU to help someone around you. 

The Choice to Get Up, Dust Yourself Off and Get Going Again »

Sometimes life just knocks us down, and almost everything seems to be going wrong. We made a bad choice, maybe several of them. The repercussions – and the feelings we are now carrying inside – are really weighing on us.

The Choice to "Suck it Up" and Go For It »

The easy choices come and go with little thought or emotion. However, our more life-defining choices – such as making a career change, starting a new business, moving away for a new opportunity, standing up for a cause we really believe in or doing “that thing” we’ve always wanted to do – can give us pause, even create fear within us.

The Motivation to Work Hard Today »

Have you ever been denied a raise? Passed up for a promotion? Left out of an important project at school or work?

Maybe it's time to reevaluate your work ethic.

The Choice Not to Label People »

Many of us operate as “people labeling machines” drawing vast conclusions about people based on how they look, how they talk, or how they believe. We often overlook our own unique characteristics, but are quick to “classify and criticize” those who are different from us.

The Choice to Not Say "I Told You So" »

You were aching to say it…so you did. “I told you so!” 

But did it really matter?

The Choice to Change Your Focus »

Sometimes, we feel a bit hopeless. Maybe we are having “difficulties” with someone close to us. It could be that our business life is not exactly hitting on all cylinders. Or, it could be a dawning realization that our life is not working out the way we had hoped many years ago. Whatever the cause, we all encounter these hopeless feelings.

The Choice to Learn and Move on From Our Mistakes »

There are times when we lie in bed wanting to go to sleep, but some bad choice we made seems to keep creeping into our heads. Whatever it is, it seems to be eating away at us. We analyze it over and over again wondering why in the world we did that in the first place. 

The Choice to Love and Respect Each Other »

While we might not fully realize it, we are living in one of the worst “finger pointing” times in the history of our country. Not a day goes by without some politician verbally stepping on one of their colleagues…or a nightly newscaster giving more one-sided “views” than news…or a local leader bashing a recent decision made at the city or state level. We ourselves fall into this same finger-pointing mode when we talk badly about one of our neighbors or say something derogatory about someone else.

There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them. Denis Waitley
