Any person who recognizes this greatest power... the power to choose. Begins to realize that he is the one that is doing the choosing and that friends, although they mean well, cannot do his choosing for him, nor can his relatives. Consequently, he develops real self-confidence based upon his own ability, upon his own action, and upon his own initiative.
Best Quotes about Choice
The more equally attractive two alternatives seem, the harder it can be to choose between them -- no matter that, to the same degree, the choice can only matter less.
Paradox, Edward Fredkin's
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
If I were going to convert to any religion I would probably choose Catholicism because it at least has female saints and the Virgin Mary.
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
Instead of looking at life as a narrowing funnel, we can see it ever widening to choose the things we want to do, to take the wisdom we've learned and create something.
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
We are the only beings on the planet who lead such rich internal lives that it's not the events that matter most to us, but rather, it's how we interpret those events that will determine how we think about ourselves and how we will act in the future.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
He that cannot decidedly say, No, when tempted to evil, is on the highway to ruin. He loses the respect even of those who would tempt him, and becomes but the pliant tool and victim of their evil designs.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
It is enough that we set out to mold the motley stuff of life into some form of our own choosing; when we do, the performance is itself the wage.
There is no shame in finding someone else to be attractive, or good company. Even if they don't like you, there is still no shame. If you happen to be fond of someone, and they're not fond of you, it's OK.. You don't have to wait and see if they'll love you back. You can announce it.. Joy in life comes from expressing ourselves, in taking risks and jumping in. Everyone is not going to like you. But you can like who you like.
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on and licks it, or he turns his back on it and starts to wither away.
You are everything that is, your thoughts, your life, your dreams come true. You are everything you choose to be. You are as unlimited as the endless universe.
Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?
You can choose to be lazy or you can choose to be ambitious. Stop to think about it again. Don't you do your own choosing?
Kohe, J. Martin
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
That guy just cut right in front of me. But I'm not going to let it bother me. No. I'm on my way to work and I decided it doesn't matter who wants to cut in front of my lane today. I'm not going to let it bother me one bit. Once I get to work, find myself a parking space, if somebody wants to jump ahead of me and take it, I'm going to let them.
Everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedom -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
Frankl, Viktor E.
Let us choose to believe something good can happen.
Kohe, J. Martin
Each person designs his own life, freedom gives him the power to carry out his own designs, and power gives the freedom to interfere with the designs of others.
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
Our generation, like the one before us, must choose. Without the threat of the Cold War, without the pain of economic ruin, without the fresh memory of World War II's slaughter, it is tempting to pursue our private agendas -- to simply sit back and let history unfold. We must resist the temptation.
The path of least resistance and least trouble is a mental rut already made. It requires troublesome work to undertake the alternation of old beliefs. Self-conceit often regards it as a sign of weakness to admit that a belief to which we have once committed ourselves is wrong. We get so identified with an idea that it is literally a pet notion and we rise to its defense and stop our eyes and ears to anything different.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
When we acknowledge that all of life is sacred and that each act is an act of choice and therefore sacred, then life is a sacred dance lived consciously each moment. When we live at this level, we participate in the creation of a better world. [The Circle is Sacred]
Lee, Scout Cloud
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
Man?s power of choice enables him to think like an angel or a devil, a king or a slave. Whatever he chooses, mind will create and manifest.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
There is an election going on all the time... the Lord votes for you and Satan votes against you, and you must cast the deciding vote.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
The first thing I do in the morning is to make my bed and while I am making up my bed I am making up my mind as to what kind of a day I am going to have.
There has never been another you. With no effort on your part you were born to be something very special and set apart. What you are going to do in appreciation of that gift is a decision only you can make.
It is the moment of evolutionary truth for the race, and what man does with that moment will be more important than the events of the previous millenium.
The way to activate the seeds of your creation is by making choices about the results you want to create. When you make a choice, you activate vast human energies and resources, which otherwise go untapped. All too often people fail to focus their choices upon results and therefore their choices are ineffective. If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
It is always your next move.
Every choice you make has an end result.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
Choice strengthens all.
You are the person who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside; You are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you'll lead or will linger behind. Whether you'll try for the goal that's afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are.
Guest, Edgar A.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
