Principle 7: The State of our Health, Wealth & Happiness is entirely our own choice
It is easy to excuse the bad elements of our state of health, wealth and happiness on our parents, teachers, genes, circumstances, god or any other external influence. But as adults the responsibility for all of these ultimately comes down to us and our choices, past and present.
The upside of this is that our future starts now, we have the capacity to change. That future depends on the choices we make now. If there is one thing fixed about life it is that it is in constant change. We have the choice to take control of that change or to be controlled by it, to let "destiny" take its course.
As leaders it is our responsibility to take the reins of those choices, creating the future of our choice.
