Taking The Lead On Tough Choices

Tags : 

People often wonder how to discover the key for success. They don’t always understand the discipline or the motivation involved. They second guess the purpose and the effort. They sometimes underestimate the commitment and the tenacity that is required.

Business Discussion

Most of your personal or professional growth will not come from luck, fate, or coincidence. When was the last time you heard someone, including yourself, say:

I don’t want to go to work today, but I don’t have a choice.

Working on this special project is killing me, but I don’t have a choice.

Learning this new software is ridiculous, but there is no choice. 

Typically we do have choices, what we sometimes lack are easy choices. You hold the key; you don’t have to discover it. You just have to use it. The greatest success stories develop from a commitment to a choice, a choice someone may have felt was not their own. Why, because it was tough.

Tough choices don’t make you powerless, they make you powerful.

But remember, it is still your choice.

Hi D!

When people realize Happiness is the key to success, everything else falls into place.

For all choices, choose Happiness!
