I recently watched an episode of a very old tv show, Groucho Marx, "You Bet Your Life". Groucho was a very funny man, but in this particular episode he was out-shined by a very happy old man, who was full of life and fun.
Groucho said, “Sir, you are the happiest man I’ve ever had on my show. How did you get to be so happy?” The old man replied, “Why son, every morning when I wake up I have two choices for the day. One choice is to be unhappy, and the other is to be happy, I choose to be happy.”
What that happy old guy was referring to is one of the greatest powers that you and I possess, the power to choose. By the power of choice, you can either make your life creative or you can destroy it. You can choose to be successful or choose to be a failure.
History swings on small hinges. Similarly, human life develops according to small decisions. We determine our future by using our immense power of choice.
