“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” -Aristotle
When I first heard this quote, it gave me chills. I was in a situation where day to day I thought.. “I need to do this today, and I need to do that in a couple of days..” My life was structured by things that I needed to do and not what I wanted to do.
I never realized how unhappy I was. This quote allowed me to take a step back and look objectively at myself and my life. Every day you live, you have a choice. You can choose to continue to be miserable… or you can choose to do something about it.
So what’s your choice?
