We Have A Choice

Today’s thought is inspired by Ryan Holiday’s “The Obstacle is the Way

Sure bad things happen to all of us. Let our mistakes become our training. No matter what happens we decide what story to tell ourselves or whether we will tell a story at all.

We have a choice in every situation, we can take advantage of problems and turn them into opportunities or we can succumb to anger and fear.

We decide what we will make of every situation.

“There is always a countermove, always an escape or way through.”

Everything we fear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. – Marcus Aurelius.

What obstacles are you facing? What opportunities do they provide?

I help health, fitness, nutrition and beauty businesses grow. Specifically, businesses building things to make us look and feel great, so that includes fashion, tech and spas too. I have two sites, one about marketing and brand building, which is mj.works and another UndisputedOrigin.com which I started to inspire everyone to become the very best they can be while leading more purposeful lives filled with gratitude and greatness. Both sites include studying and curating the very best experts and masters for improving performance, achieving success and living a thoughtful and intentional life. I am also obsessed with how technology can improve our health, fitness, nutrition, meditation and mindful practices while reducing stress and creating calm amidst the chaos of modern existence. Both sites are about my interest in self-discovery and personal growth.
