I choose to get up!

Man's Search For Meaning by Viktor E Frankl

In the morning I awake and do my reading and prayers.

One of the things I read is a book of daily thoughts from Louise Hays. Today the message was to drop this phrase from your vocabularly, “I have to” – and to replace it with this attitude, “I choose to.”

What a powerful shift!

Life, actions, behaviors and beliefs are a choice! What are you choosing? Do you say, “I have to get up.” or “I have to go to work.” or “I  have to finish that project.” – what if you shifted all those to something exciting – “I choose to get up.” and “I choose to go to work.” and “I choose to finish that project.”

You could even add how you choose – “I choose to get up energized.” or “I choose to go to work and do my best.” and “I choose to finish this project with creativity and focus.”

Wow!

Then the quote I had planned reinforced this concept. It’s by Victor Frankl who wrote “Man’s Search for Meaning” and I recommend it. It’s about the concentration camps and how those with the power to choose their attitude had the power of life.

Here’s the quote: “Everything can be taken from man except the last of the human freedoms, his ability to choose his own attitude in any given set of circumstances – to choose his own way.”

Two differnt authors giving the same powerful message. For me this means I need to listen and use this to my own benefit. What about you?

You Create Your Day by the way You Think! Be Present!

Go make it a Magnificent Day!
