“You’ve only got three choices in life… Give up, give in, or give it all you’ve got.“
Did you know that in one day we will probably make over 100 choices? Really. We choose to breathe, open our eyes, to get up… brush your teeth (please do lol), eat breakfast, go to work, smile. We may decide to turn left while driving, or look at the sky to see the weather. We may choose to work out, call a friend, listen to music (choosing a song is another choice), and the list could go on and on and on…
So, why do we so often make up excuses for not following through on our goals? It’s just another choice. Sure, it may alter our future, but so do many of the other choices we may daily. We just don’t think of them as being big decisions, I mean, come on now… things like brushing your teeth or your hair can greatly affect the rest of your day 😉
And you know what, it’s okay if chasing after your goals doesn’t have the great turnout you expected.
It’s okay if your story includes some, “I tried, but it didn’t work out”‘s or, “I did all I could”‘s. And other similar messages because, the underlying message is I DID IT, I TRIED! So it didn’t have your exact outcome. What matters is that you didn’t ignore it or give up, you went for it despite all the potential outcomes!
Your initial decision is what matters. Your choice to “do it” screams messages of hope and belief in yourself. Don’t get me wrong, not having things turn out the way you hoped totally stinks! But don’t let that beat you down and keep you there. Remember that your effort to make it happen is the most important part.
Having a goal and trying to reach it will probably bring more happiness (even if in the long run) than having a goal, putting it on the back-burner, and later wondering “what if…?”
Daily choices are important. You are important. Your choices are important because they are YOURS, no one else’s. So set a goal and choose to reach it! Don’t let the negativity and reasons “why not” deter you from that goal. Reach, reach, REACH for it anyway! Believe you can do it!
Remember, it’s your initial choice that matters. And that choice will make your story worth telling!
