Yiddish Proverb on Choices

No choice is a choice too – Yiddish proverb

When you don’t act, you agree to stay right where you are.

If you mean to look for a new job but don’t, you accept your old job over again.

If you mean to get fit but don’t change your exercise routine or diet, you choose the health you have now.

Are you satisfied with your choices?

Dr. Denis Waitley On Circumstance And Responsibility

There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them — Dr. Denis Waitley

Wow, I think this quote was written for Cynical Me.

how hard will you push?Do you fixate on how stuck things are, or do you try to find solutions?

Are you complaining more than doing?

Which choice will you make today: to remain where you are; or to pour everything you’ve got into making your dreams com true?

It’s a shame to be caught up in something that doesn’t make you absolutely tremble with joy – Julia Child

Now there’s a metric I can get behind – not just joy, but joy that makes you tremble. What if we made all of our decisions based on this:

  • Career
  • Money
  • Time
  • Relationships

What would you do differently if you had to measure your choices against the trembling joy they bring?
