You’ve only got three choices in life…

“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…

Our life is in our own hands.

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 ūüėČ

And you know what, it’s okay if chasing after your goals doesn’t have the great turnout you expected.

this defines "success" perfectly!

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…?”

your goals & dreams are important!

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!

It always seems impossible until it is done!

“Magic lives. It will always live. Why? It is simple –¬†because deep inside, we never stop believing.” -Loretta Murphy-Birster

So why is it that we sometimes turn our heads when we see the “impossible” or laugh at something that cannot be explained? Is it because we are uncomfortable? Maybe it’s because we have lost our belief in magic. And when I say “magic” I don’t mean the kind you can find in Harry Potter, but the magic in daily life, miracles.

Truth is, this world is magic, we are magic. We just have to open our eyes to see it. We are all capable of things beyond our imagination!

“Magic exists, but we really do have to open our minds and become like children again, to be able to spot it.” ~Wayne Leon

If we alter our thinking, the simplest things in life can be related to “magic.”

Buy why bring up magic? Well, often times we don’t reach for our dreams. We find reasons, excuses, to stop in our tracks and settle for where we are instead of pressing forward.

We have all had goals or dreams that we have pushed to the back of our minds. It’s time we revisit those dreams! We have minds for a reason, to educate ourselves about life and then use what we have learned to reach those dreams.

“Start by doing what is necessary, then what’s possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” ~Francis of Assisi

So think about a dream you once had, whether big or small, it’s worth striving for. If you don’t you may be asking yourself “what if” for the rest of your life.

No matter how old you are, it’s NEVER too late to wish to meet one of your dreams! It’s just up to you!

"It always seems impossible until it is done!"

Be a dreamer and keep on believing!
