Where you go in life and whether you enjoy the trip will be determined by your choices, not your circumstances.
In your work life and your personal life you will face choices not merely on what to do but on how you will react or respond to things other did.
Life’s turning points are not marked and they are not always as obvious as cross roads. Often they are hidden within seemingly small choices with unforeseen ramifications – whether to make a comment or hold your tongue, whether to be kind or sarcastic, honest or deceitful;, whether to fulfill or dodge a responsibility.
It’s often impossible to know which choices will have fleeting or enduring impact.
What we do, especially when we think no one is looking, reveals our values and our character.
Take yourself and your actions seriously and choose widely.
And, above all, stay in touch with and listen to your better angels.
