Who do you want to be today?
Stop! …that’s the wrong question. It conveys that change is easy, or that it’s a matter of “acting”.
Remove ‘today’ and the question becomes actionable.
Stop. Focus. Change.
We define the self by the decisions we make everyday – in small ways, effortlessly, in drastic ways, with effort, drive and commitment.
A focus of effort is critical in changing the self!
Clint Eastwood says this about efforts and how it leads to respect, self-respect, and self-discipline, and the reward the change brings:
“Respect your efforts, respect yourself.
Self-respect leads to self-discipline.
When you have both firmly under your belt,
that’s real power.”
Yet what self can do is all enabled because we are creatures born with the ability to choose. And where there is a choice, there must be a decision.
It is explained by understanding The Decision Switch. Beat Canvas explains the decision switch in its “Who do you want to be today?” article.
