Over the years I have collected many hundreds of quotations and sayings – some of the best on making Choices I share below, while many more can be found on The Road Less Travelled.
Your life changes the moment you make a new, congruent, and committed decision.
You express the truth of your character with the choice of your actions.
Difficulty is inevitable. Drama is a choice.
No one can grant you happiness. Happiness is a choice we all have the power to make.
It’s the choices you make that determine the direction you take!
Personal responsibility decides that whatever happens I have the privilege of choosing my response.
Sometimes it’s not how many moments life brings you but what you choose to bring to each moment!
The actions you take or fail to take are the result of choices you have made. Your choices are your ‘personal responsibility’
Happiness is not by chance, but by choice.
There are three constants in life… change, choice and principles.
The best day of your life is the one on which you choose your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.
(adapted from) Bob Moawad
Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.
Everything you do is based on the choices you make. It’s not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy, the weather, an argument or your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. Period!
You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself
None of us can change our yesterdays, but all of us can change our tomorrows
You want to change your life? Control the only thing you can control: the meaning you give something
Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down
Being a good person doesn’t guarantee that others will be good people too. You only have control over yourself on how you choose to be as a person. And for the others you can only choose to accept them or walk away
Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice.
Life is uncertain. The key question is, do you see the wonder and delight of that uncertainty or do you fear and doubt an unknown and scary future? It really is only a choice you make.
It’s choice – not chance – that determines your destiny.
The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice
There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist,
or accept the responsibility for changing them.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life
It is only when you exercise your right to choose that you can also exercise your right to change
Dr. Shad Helmstetter
Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.
Robert F. Bennett
Choice is the only tool we have that enables us to go from who we are today to who we want to be tomorrow.
Sheena Iyengar (The Art of Choosing)
Right now you are one choice away from a new beginning – one that leads you toward becoming the fullest human being you can be.
The last of the human freedoms is to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances.
Victor E. Frankl
It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
Joanne Kathleen Rowling
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.
Life moves on and so should we!
Spencer Johnson (Who Moved My Cheese?)
It is the big choices we make that set our direction. It is the smallest choices we make that get us to the destination.
Dr. Shad Helmstetter
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
