have you done today? What shall you do with the rest
of the day? When you think about the things that you
do during the course of each day, how do all of the
individual actions work together to make you the person
that you are? How do they contribute to your
continual growth as a human being, toward your development
towards becoming the person you wish to be.
people don't think about most of their actions. We
often function by rote, doing the same things over and
over again, not varying our routines or our actions much
at all. But if we thought about those actions more
closely, could we find within them the potential to do
them with more awareness, with more of a realization of
just how fortunate we are to be able to do what we
do? If I walk up a flight of stairs and think about
the millions of people who--through no fault of their
own--are unable to perform such a simple action, then my
walking up the stairs becomes a precious gift.
we choose what we do and how we do it, we're choosing who
we're becoming. We're choosing what's going into
taking us tomorrow just a bit further along the road
towards our potential. If my actions are kind and
considerate, I grow into a kinder and more considerate
person. If my action is to pick up a book on
self-development rather than turning on a mindless sitcom,
then I'm adding to my character. If my action is to
do a small and simple favor for a friend, then I'm adding
a very positive piece to myself.
do you do? Answer that question and you'll have a
lot of insight into who you are.
