How often do you say “I have to” do something? This moves you out of the driver’s seat of your life and keeps you from taking responsibility for what is going on. “I get to” helps you remember that life is a gift and a blessing. Everything you do is part of the larger expression of being alive. However the most powerful statement is “I choose to”…brush my teeth, answer my email, take care of the kids, go to work. ‘I choose to’ reminds you that everything in your life is the product of the choices you have made. When you are doing that thing you don’t really like, remember that you choose it. Sometimes you chose it directly and sometimes you chose it because it’s in service to something larger or more important, like feeding your family or taking care of your health. This realization – “I choose to” – changes everything. Change every ‘I have to” to “I choose to” and see how dramatically your life changes!
