CLINT'S LIFE WASN'T GOING SO WELLThen Clint learned something that helped him change his habit and NOW His Life is Looking Pretty Good.HE HAD A BAD HABITCLINT SAYS,
ALL BECAUSE I LEARNED TO MAKE A
A SIMPLE CHOICE I DID NOT KNOW I COULD MAKE
I'M NOT STRESSEDOR ANXIOUSOR UPSETI FEEL GOODI'M HAPPY
I LEARNED THAT
SUCCESS IS A HABITI CAN CHOOSE
I learned that
SUCCESS IS A HABITI Can Choose
BUT I HAD TO UNDERSTAND1 THINGYEP! JUST ONE THING
EVERYTHING IS A CHOICE
LOVE IS A CHOICE
HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE
FEELING GOOD IS A CHOICE
I don't know why, but I always thought Those things were feelings I had because good stuff was happening to me.
I was wrong.
Man, I'm glad I learned the truth.
I LEARNED THE HABIT OF CHOOSING
I learned when I choose in advance to Love myself, it helps me be less hard on myself when I screw up, which helps me not screw up next time.My life is much better when I'm not being hard on myself.
I learned when I choose in advance to Love other people, it helps me not argue, fight or hate them when they screw up and man do people screw up.My life is much better when I'm not arguing, fighting and hating people."
I learned when I choose in advance to love my job, it helps me not hate my job when it doesn't go like I hoped and well you know.I'm much better at my job when I'm not hating it.
I learned when I choose in advance to love my life, it helps me not hate my life when things don't go like I hoped they would, which helps me see the best way to make the situation better.My life is much better when I'm not hating it. Life is a reflection of our choices
You see I had it all wrong.
I based my choices on how I felt at any given moment. When something didn't go the way I hoped it would or someone didn't behave like I wanted them to, then I'd get mad and lash out or withdraw and stew in the misery for days.
Which meant my life sucked until something good happened so I could feel good again.
I didn't realize it, but I was playing the role of victim. Life sucks when you play the role of victim. Don't play the role of victim.
Learn the habit of choosing your response when things happen.
Guess what else I learned? I learned I can choose any response I want. It's my decision and it doesn't matter if other people agree or not.
If someone cuts me off in traffic, I can respond by smiling. If my girlfriend leaves me, I can respond by reading a good book.If I get fired, I can respond by selling my stuff and traveling the world.If my kid gets an F on his report card, I can respond by saying, at least you didn't get an F-, now let's see what you can do to get a F+
I also discovered something else very important, but you gottaclick through to the next slide, because I ran out of room on this one.
I learned I my life is incredible not because I have a mansion on the hill or piles of money or the perfect relationships, but because I have the freedom to choose how I feel and respond, in spite of those things.
I learned the universe is gonna keep serving up
Death and lifeFear and faith Pain and pleasureHate and love Failure and successBad and good timesGridlock and clear highwaysGovernments that run amuck
Life's a pain in the ass and then it's incredible. Repeat until your last breath." - Les DosseyAnd I can act like it shouldn't be that way and shake my fist at the Heavens for seeming so unfair or
I can quit denying it and ask it to teach me how to dance it's dance.
Life is much better when you learn how to master it's dance.
See if this makes sense to you.
Unless you breath your last breath today, you're going to have to breath tomorrow. Right?
And if you keep breathing, you're going to keep living. Right?
And since you're going to keep living, that means you're going to have to earn a living, interact with people, pay bills, buy groceries, eat, sleep, poop. Right?
And since while doing those things you're going to get stuck in traffic, miss an appointment, someone will betray you, you'll lose someone to death, get sick, pay an unexpected bill, screw up and then screw up again, etc. Right?
Since you're going to do all those things anyway, why not learn how to master the dance?
When death occurs, look it in the eye and ask it to dance.When you encounter gridlock, look it in the eye and ask it to dance.When it hurts at your core, look it in the eye and ask it to dance.
And when opportunity and sunshine and clear highways and new life occur, look em in the eye and ask em to dance.
It's time to master the dance
