          Making Choices in Life

          October 27, 2003

          It’s often been said that life is a series of choices. Think about it. As you progress from one stage of your life to another, you make choices that have far-reaching implications.

          You can think about life in different phases. First is dependency, when we rely on others to take care of us, to feed us, to clothe us. Then, you move into the preparation phase where you’re getting yourself ready to do something with your life. Then, you move into the performance phase.

          All of these phases are driven by choices. What you need to ask yourself is why you make the choices that you make.

          Most choices are made out of fear — not need for achievement, not pride, but fear. One of the things that I want you to do is sit down and say, “What are the important choices that I’m making in my life, and what is the motive that drives each and every one of these choices?” That knowledge will be power.
