    Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

    Today we have higher buildings and wider highways, but shorter temperments and narrower points of view.

    We spend more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses, but smaller families. We have more compromises, but less time. We have more knowledge, but less judgement. We have more medicines, but less health.

    We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk much, we love only a little, and we hate too much.

    We reached the moon and came back, but we find it troublesome to cross our own street and meet our neighbors. We have conquered the outer space, but not our inner space.

    We have higher income, but less morals… These are times with more liberty, but less joy… With much more food, but less nutrition…

    These are days in which two salaries come home, but divorces increase. These are times of finer houses, but more broken homes.

    That’s why I propose that as of today -- You do not keep anything for a special occasion, because every day that you live is a special occasion. Search for knowledge, read more, sit on your front porch and admire the view without paying attention to the needs. Pass more time with your family, eat your favorite food, visit the place you love. Life is a chain of moments of enjoyment; it isn’t only survival.

    Use your crystal goblets. Do not save your best perfume… use it every time you feel you want it. Take out from your vocabulary phrases like, “one of these days” and “someday”. Let’s write that letter we thought of writing “one of these days…”

    Let’s tell our families and friends how much we love them. Never pass up a chance at adding laughter and joy to your life. Every day, hour, and minute are special… Because you never know if it will be your last…

    If you’re too busy to take some minutes to share this message with someone you love, and you tell yourself that you will share it “one of these days”… “one of these days” can be very far away, and you may not be there to see it…

    Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

    Read this and let it really sink in...then choose how to start your day tomorrow...

    Michael is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a
    good mood and always has something positive to say. When
    someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I
    were any better, I would be twins!"

    He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad
    day, Michael was there telling the employee how to look on the
    positive side of the situation.

    Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to
    Michael and asked him, "I don't get it! You can't be a positive
    person all of the time. How do you do it?"

    Michael replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself,
    'Mike, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a
    good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.' I choose to
    be in a good mood.

    "Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim
    or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.

    "Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to
    accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of
    life. I choose the positive side of life."

    "Yeah, right, it isn't that easy," I protested.

    "Yes, it is," Michael said. Life is all about choices. When you
    cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose
    how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect
    your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. "The
    bottom line is: It's your choice how you live life."

    I reflected on what Michael said. Soon thereafter, I left the tower industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.

    Several years later, I heard that Michael was involved in a
    serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications
    tower. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care,
    Michael was released from the hospital with rods placed in his
    back.

    I saw Michael about six months after the accident. When I asked
    him how he was, he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins.
    Wanna see my scars?"

    I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone
    through his mind as the accident took place. "The first thing that went through my mind was the well being of my soon-to-be-
    born daughter," Michael replied. "Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or I could choose to die. I chose to live."

    "Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked.

    Michael continued, "The paramedics were great.They kept
    telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me
    into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors
    and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read 'He's a dead man.' I knew I needed to take action."

    "What did you do?" I asked. "Well, there was a big burly nurse
    shouting questions at me," said Michael. "She asked if I was
    allergic to anything. 'Yes,' I replied. The doctors and nurses
    stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep
    breath and yelled, 'Gravity.' Over their laughter, I told them, 'I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead'."

    Michael lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude. I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully. Attitude, after all, is everything.
