He Decided

One of the most powerful things to say in this life is "I have decided". This statement pushes almost everything forward and does not look for excuses or happenstance to occur. When was the last time you "decided" to do or have something and did not get it?

While speaking with my best friend today, he told me that he decided to act a particular way on the day of his mother's passing. It was how he said it that moved me. It was said with strength and conviction and he did not waiver.

So what does it mean to truly decide? In my opinion, it means to see more of the end result than the road leading up to it. Michael Jordan "decided" to be who he eventually became. Ben Franklin "decided" long ago that he would succeed no matter what. Oprah "decided" that she would touch as many people as she possibly could, she did it.

The magic of that word reminds me that success in any area of our lives starts with deciding that it shall be. Decide to day to raise the bar and grab more of the fruit that calls you and stop ignoring it. Chase
