Success is consistently manifesting the outcomes we choose. I have had many successes in my life, a marriage for several decades, six smart wonderful children, six books, certitude in spirituality, and the bounty of finding and developing my unique talents: motivating others through speaking, writing, and poetry. I have been blessed to live on purpose! Yes, I’ve had challenges too, but I know that what we focus on magnifies in our lives, so I choose to focus on what I’d like to see more of instead. A powerful liberating thought I learned years ago was that life is choice! We have the power to choose the life we want to live. We just have to be willing to create it.
