Do you really know what it means to be a winner in life? I am sure you have heard others speak about folks who appear to have it all – a happy marriage, a great home life, a solid career, good friends, a nice home. When you notice that some people have such comfortable lives, does your heart pine to have a similar lifestyle?

It all boils down to the choices that you make in life. Each day, in fact, you make countless decisions of which you do not give a second thought. For example, when you wake up in the morning, take a shower, eat breakfast, drive to work, do your job, go shopping and then come home, you have made six choices already. But it is all the in-between decisions that sometimes have the most impact. The thing about these choices, too, is that there is an underlying reason or purpose as to why you do all the things that you do. What determines your choices, actions, behavior and end results is the motivating factor or drive. What convictions do you have about the life you want to lead? If you are simply going through the daily motions of “living” but not loving life, you may not truly have or achieve the lifestyle you deserve.

To become a winner in life, you must have a winning attitude of gratitude. The more you learn to appreciate the blessings in your life, the greater chances you will reach greatness in everything that touches your life. “I am grateful, but I am simply not going anywhere,” you say? What choices can you make today to jumpstart the road to your individual success?

You must take a look at the motivator behind what you do – the seed you have planted to grow your abundance. Is the seed just a withering way to get by and make ends meet, or is the seed being nurtured with a strong and productive strategy to go beyond the average and into the extraordinary life you want to have? Do not “pine about” what you could have. Instead, take action steps. Make every choice count for something. If you are stuck in a dead end job, and you know that it is a dead end job, why are you still there? The same holds true for relationships. If you are in a negative relationship, or if you do not have the love of your life in your life, then what are you doing about the situation torectify it? Look at your past, your present and your future. Where have you been, what choices have you made, what choices are you making today, and what choices do you need to actively make to achieve the end results you want? If you are making the same decisions that you have made 10 years ago, isn’t it time you switched strategies?

You have one million and one choices (and beyond) to create a joyful and prosperous life of individual freedom. Plant the seed of success in your heart, your mind, and your spirit. Give it wings to fly by following up on lifestyle-changing choices so you too, can soar to greater heights.

Until we speak again, I am
