#224-I CHOOSE CONTROL

I would like to get a serious for just a minute. Someone very special sent this to me and I want to share it with you:

Though you have some control over things outside yourself, the most powerful and important control you have is over your own thoughts and actions. Indeed, it is through self-control that your greatest possibilities can be realized.
People will attempt to tell you that you have no choice, that when certain things happen you must react in a certain way. But you most certainly do have a choice. You do not have to be a victim of circumstance, no matter what that circumstance may be. You can choose the way you respond, and you can take control of your circumstances by being in control of yourself.
Imagine all the things you could accomplish if you had a servant who obeyed your every command. The fact is, you do have such a servant and it is you. So what are you commanding yourself to do? How are you controlling the powerful and valuable force that is your life?
When you attempt to control others, they will resist you. Yet when you focus on controlling your own thoughts and actions, the positive possibilities are unlimited. You have within your complete control someone who is capable of many great things -- you. Use that control wisely and it can take you wherever God has planned and desires you to go.
You need to take control your thoughts.  You would protect yourself from rocks falling on your head.  Well, you need to do the same thing with your thoughts.  Say a prayer, ask God for guidance and wisdom and then write up a few (well maybe lots) of positive comments about yourself.  Put them in an empty Kleanix box and draw one out each time a negative thought enters your mind.  Of course you might have to carry around that box for a while, but it is important to over power those thoughts.


This is why my answer to the casually uttered statement, "Have a nice day," is usually, "I will, because it is my choice and I choose to have a nice day today, I hope you do to."
