One of the keys to a successful life is to have options, choices. The more choices or options one has, the better. For example, the more accomplished we are in our work, the more options we have to advance our careers. Likewise, if we save and invest wisely, we have more choices in our personal lives.
The good news is that we all have certain choices no matter our circumstances. This, to me, is wonderfully illustrated by a quote from Roy T. Bennett from his book, The Light in the Heart. Here it is:
“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.”
As we begin another new year, I would urge each one to reflect on making the right choices. It will make a difference in how your life turns out.
