Eight Choices You Can Make Today that Will Change Your Life Forever
by Chris Widener

My boss shared this to me and I find it all true. I wanna share this to you too.

The direction of our lives is determined by the choices we make every day.They accumulate and add up to our ultimate destiny. Here are eight choices you can make - choices that will create for you a life of abundance and prosperity in all areas of your life.

1. Choose to grow personally. This sounds simple but many people only wish to grow personally. They never choose to grow by taking action, such as actually exercising, saving more money etc. Make a decision today to be a person who is on the never ending journey of personal growth. - I am more of not planning anything. I want to do things right but I can't do it actually. I need to have a personal growth. Action speaks louder than words pa rin.

2. Choose to always treat others right. We come across all sorts of people, many of whom will treat us poorly. We can choose to treat them right, no matter how they treat us. When they lie, we will tell the truth. When they cheat, we will play by the rules. We may get the short end of the stick some times, but in the long-run we will win. And most importantly, we will be able to sleep at night. -this is really true. My work requires me to mingle with different kinds of people. Most of them are not professional in dealing their fellowmen but I have to be nice because I need them and it would be my lost if I treat them the bad way they treat me. I do as what my work requires. I love my job sir, I care about it not you!(caregiver-lol)

3. Choose to break a bad habit. Take the biggie first. Tackle it head on. If you don't know what it is, ask a friend. Then spend every effort you can to break that habit. Forget about the others, as you will get to them later. Stop smoking, get out of debt, lose your excess weight. Exercise the power to choose! - I am guilty, I have to do this. All of these! Lol. Wait, except smoking. It's that I don't smoke. Back to number one. I wish I can break all of my bad habits and not the rules red!

4. Choose to work smarter. Many people I work with feel like they are out of balance. One of the first things I do is try to find out how much time they are wasting at work, which makes them work longer, which throws the rest of their life into chaos. Getting your work done by diligently working in the time you have will free your life up extraordinarily. - I have to apply this. I have to remind myself about this. (sigh) But if I feel lazy to work, everything is messed & missed.

5. Choose to see your work as a way to help others, and not a way to make money. If you put your heart into helping others, the money will most assuredly come. Spend time helping others grow and your finances will grow with it. -this is not true. Personally, I love my work because I am earning from it.(peso, peso, peso!)

6. Choose to become balanced spiritually, emotionally and physically. Our lives are best when we have these three major areas in balance. Spend some time cultivating your spirituality, becoming emotionally healthy, and physically fit.- Again huh. I need to do these three aspects badly!

7. Choose to sow more than you reap. There are many takers in this world, but our lives will be better as we become givers. The world will become better as we become givers. Give away your time, give away your money, give away your love. -I know what you sow is what you reap. That's karma. But it is too much to give away time, love, and of course money, if it is much. that's it. Akala mo ha. If it's too much, it's worst. Just set something for yourself.

8. Choose to get home for dinner more often. The family is the most important group of people you will ever belong to. Make a decision today to grow in your relationship with your parents, siblings, spouse and children. This one choice you will never regret. -This is what I realized. Family is really important. People will leave you but not your family.

The history of free men is never written by chance, but by choice - their choice.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower
