Three Choices in Life
“You have three choices in life: give up, give in, or give it all you’ve got.”
Are you ready to give life more of what you’ve got? Do you want more fulfillment in your life, relationships and your work? Are you feeling life is out of your control and imbalanced?
If you don’t like something you have the power to shift your mindset and change your life. Although life circumstances may not be of your choosing — you can choose your attitude. Here’s how — think about approaching every adversity or decision from a place of giving — the choice to give up, give in, or give it all you’ve got.
What I know to be true is — some “why” questions may never give you an answer or the answers you want. Rather the adversities you encounter truly do make you stronger and it’s in that discomfort of stress when your greatest potential of resilience is revealed.
On September 8th, twenty-four years ago, my son was born with a congenital heart defect known as hypo plastic left heart syndrome (HLHS.) Imagine his early start in life with three open heart surgeries in those first nineteen months. For him, (if he chose) life could appear to be complicated and perhaps “unfair.” Never once did he give up or give in to the fear of “can’t.” Rather my son chose to face adversity with a courageous “give it all you’ve got” attitude. And that shift continues to change his life.
Which will you choose?
