I received an email yesterday with this quote from the late Jim Rohn a well-known mentor, motivator and public speaker...
"What we ponder and what we think about sets the course of our life. Any day we wish; we can discipline ourselves to change it all. Any day we wish, we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge. Any day we wish, we can start a new activity. Any day we wish, we can start the process of life change. We can do it immediately, or next week, or next month, or next year.
"We can also do nothing. We can pretend rather than perform. And if the idea of having to change ourselves makes us uncomfortable, we can remain as we are. We can choose rest over labor, entertainment over education, delusion over truth, and doubt over confidence. The choices are ours to make. But while we curse the effect, we continue to nourish the cause. As Shakespeare uniquely observed, "The fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves." We created our circumstances by our past choices. We have both the ability and the responsibility to make better choices beginning today."
I thought it a timely reminder for myself. This is my office.
The quote reminded me that I have lots of opportunities sitting in and around my desk, ideas that haven't been explored fully and half finished projects, like my DISC book.
I could do nothing but I choose to change, to develop and grow my businesses. Which is it for you?
