Once he walked out the door, his life changed forever.
A common line in many-a-mystery, documentary or biography. And if it were you? Do you wait until a disaster to change? What if we lived today, like tomorrow would change our lives forever?
What if the — forever change — was positive? You win the lottery, inherit a beautiful house, meet the love of your life? If you knew something like that would happen tomorrow—would it change the decisions you make today? Making decisions today based on things that might or might not happen tomorrow, isn’t wise. Yet, do we limit our thinking based on real, or perceived constraints: money, time, energy, ability, motivation? What if we expanded our thinking, or released the perceived limitations? What if we spent, or saved, based, not on winning the lottery, but on our innate potential?
And if the — forever change — was not so positive. A death in the family, a tragic accident, a devastating diagnosis? How would that change the decisions you make today? Would you be nicer, love more, show your spouse more appreciation, talk sweeter to your kids, work harder in school or work, eat better, exercise more? How would you change the way you treat your family, friends, or coworkers? How would you change the way you treat yourself?
How do your decisions today effect the trajectory of the rest of your life?
