One of the best places to start to turn your life around is by doing whatever appears on your mental "I should" list.
Indecision is the thief of opportunity. Every life form seems to strive to its maximum except human beings.
How tall will a tree grow? As tall as it possibly can.
Human beings, on the other hand, have been given the dignity of choice. You can choose to be all or you can choose to be less.
Why not stretch up to the full measure of the challenge and see what all you can do?
You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.
Decision making can sometimes seem like inner civil war.
Don't say, "If I could, I would." Say, "If I can, I will." It doesn't matter which side of the fence you get off on sometimes. What matters most is getting off the fence!
You cannot make progress without making decisions. We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons: inspiration or desperation.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
I used to say, "I sure hope things will change." Then I learned that the only way things are going to change for me is when I change.
