A husband had just finished reading a new book entitled, "You Can Be The Man Of Your House." He put the book down, stormed into the kitchen, and announced to his wife,
"From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and my word is Law.
You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I'm finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous dessert.
After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and make love to me in the manner of my choosing. Afterwards, you are going to run me a relaxing bath, wash my back and towel me dry.
Then, you will massage my feet and hands ...... and tomorrow, guess who's going to dress me and comb my hair?"
"The funeral director," his wife replied.
We tend to focus too much on titles, expectations and qualifications, and not enough on the impact we make on the lives of others.
When we choose to peel away some of these generalizations, kiss goodbye to the labels we've been given and instead project our passion for what we do and why we do it, we attract all the people, resources and opportunities we need to succeed.
This year someone will choose to let go of their past, rewire their present and rewrite their future.
This year someone will choose to turn pain into power, fear into fortune and confusion into clarity.
This year someone will choose to trust themselves, take bigger risks and be so good that they can't be ignored.
The question is not so much can you, but will you?
Make every day this year Chooseday.
