Motivational Power Quote

 

The Life We Lead is Our Choice 

"Life is a grindstone.

But whether it grinds us down or polishes us up

depends on us."

L. Thomas Holdcraft, author   

  

As I see it. . . . . . . .

The Life We Lead is Our Choice  

When we encounter a fork in the road we reach a point of choice we can take the fork to the right or we can take the fork to the left. Both will move up forward but we have to make the choice of which path to follow and to step outside of our comfort zone. Both paths have an element of risk and both paths would contribute to our success.   

But at the same time there is a third choice, the path of no choice or procrastination. The third choice initially seem to the safest because there seems to be no element of risk and we feel comfortable in what we been doing.   

Traveling on the first two path has both risk and uncertainly. But as we make the choice to take the paths we move in the direction of goals and grow as a person. As we travel on the paths our uncertainly will melt away and we minimize our risks as a result of our actions.   

The person that decides to take the third option of not making a choice or to procrastinate, has made there choice, the choice of inaction.   

That person will not go further then where they stand today and in all likelihood will begin to drift backwards and further away from achieving there goals   

The life we lead is our choice and the path we decide to follow is of our choosing. Be willing to follow your dreams and take the calculated risks that will put into the winners circle of life.

Lou, this applies to those 33 miners in Chile!  It was great to see such polish after their ordeal.

Lou- I think the important thing to remember is you do have a choice; it falls on us personally to make our life what it will be.

Hi Lou, Risk and uncertainty can be quite scary for so many. Many take the path of least resistence. Love this quote - life can polish us up or grind us down.

I always put my clients first in any transaction!

That is an interesting perspective. I guess we have to watch where we stand on certain subjects...

Hi Lou, So important to choose the path and move if you have a goal.  Deciding to do nothing reeps nothing.  Good thoughts for today Lou.
