Changing always starts with a choice. And, until you start making some choices, nothing is going to change in your life. For me, it is how I choose to look at the ups and downs in life.
As I wrote yesterday about the challenges that I faced Sunday while traveling, your choices shape your life far more than your circumstances do, as Rick Warren shared this morning in his podcast.
"Your choices shape your life far more than your circumstances do."
When you look at these pictures, they could represent a very bumpy road, a very steep incline, successes and failures. But in the end, my trajectory in weight loss has been down, but the climb up the steps (looking at it in an upwards trajectory), has been nothing more than good choices for myself mentally and physically.
Choosing to change the way you think, what you think about, dictates your life. All internal and external conflicts start in your mind. When you change what you focus on, you can make any changes you want in your life. It all starts with a thought.
Do you want a reset in your life; change the way you think? Don't be fooled. There will be many ups and downs along the way, but in the end, you will see the results you desire. You will reap what you sew.
