We spend so much time in negative thought or in negative actions. Negativity literally surrounds our lives.

However, we have the power within ourselves to rise above the meaningless, petty distractions that can waste so much time and steal so much of our energy.

We have the power to fill our moments and our life with the things that have real and lasting meaning.

We have the power to set ourselves free of negative thought patterns and behaviors. We have within ourselves the power to not let the negativity surround and control our thoughts and actions. We have the power to imagine the best for ourselves and our world.

We have the power to be at our best no matter what the circumstance. Only we have the power of will to move forward no matter what setbacks or obstacles may block our path.

We have the power to live our highest vision of how life can, and should, be. We have the power to follow and to reach the dreams we choose.

Where does this power come from? We have this power because we have a choice. We have the power to choose, independent of all other factors, what to think, what to say, what to do and who we want to be.

Though it is a serious responsibility, it is also the most magnificent opportunity anyone can imagine. We have the power to choose. Do not waste that power. It can transform our world and the world of others.
