You Get To Decide.

If you go looking for problems, you will find them. If you go looking for a better life, you will find it.

If you go looking for more profit in your business, you will find it.

If you go looking for ways to be a better person, you will find them.

If you go looking for true happiness, you will find it.

If you go looking for cheap relationships, you will find them.

If you go looking for quick ways to make more money, you will find them.

If you go looking for ways to work less, you will find them.

If you go looking for a better set of friends, you will find them.

If you go looking for new ideas, you will find them.

If you go looking for inspiration, you will find it.

You get to decide what you find.

It’s ridiculous to blame where you are in life on everybody and everything but yourself.

Stop acting like a victim. Stop acting like you are a bystander in the middle of your life.

You will find what you go looking for. You will end up where you started heading yesterday.

It’s not an accident. What you look for you find. What you obsess about the most you eventually become.

You create who you are — both now and in the future.

You create that “you” with your thoughts and intentions.

When was the last time you purposefully intended to better your life? When was the last time you got serious about changing what’s broken inside you?

Your life isn’t uniquely broken. You don’t have more problems than anyone else.

You just might not be looking as hard for answers as everyone else around you.

You decide what you are going to find.

Maybe that’s why life seems a little bit more unfair — your “decider” is broken.

Change your thinking. You will improve the rest of your life.
