TWO CHOICES

I just saw this piece of paper inside an old box. Immediately I saw it, I felt two choices; squeeze it and drop in the waste basket without reading or read it, squeeze it and drop in the waste basket. well, I spared the time and settled for the latter and the first line I read was Two Choices. What are they about? Read on ...

Each of us has two distinct choices to make about what we will do with our lives. The first choice we can make is to be less than we have the capacity to be: to earn less; to have less; to read less and think less; to try less and discipline yourself less. These are the choices that lead to an empty life. These are the choices that, once made, lead to a life of constant apprehension instead of a life of wondrous adventure and anticipation.

And the second choice: To do it all! To become all that you can possibly be; to read every book that you possibly can; to earn as much as you possibly can; to give and share as much as you possibly can. To strive and produce and accomplish as much as you possibly can. We all have the choice.

To do or not to do: to be or not to be; to be all or to be less or to be nothing at all. Like the tree, it would be a worthy challenge for us all to stretch upward and outward to the full measure of our capabilities. Why not do all that you can, every moment that you can, in the best that you can and for as long as you can?

Our ultimate life objective should be to create as much as our talent and ability and desire will permit. To settle for doing less than you could do is to fail in this worthiest of undertakings.

Results are the best measurement of human progress: not conversation, not explanation nor justification. Results! And if your results are less than your potential suggests that they should be, then we must strive to become more today than we were the day before. The greatest rewards are always reserved for those who bring great value to themselves and the world around them as a result of whom and what they have become.
