I am in the middle of reading The Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews. Have you read it? This fiction novel profiles a man whose divine adventure takes him – and me, on an incredible journey. He “visits” seven historical figures, such as Abraham Lincoln and King Soloman, and with each visit sees a decision the person made that impacted our world.
If you haven’t read it yet, I won’t ruin it for you, but the seven decisions profiled in the book are worth sharing:
1) I Will Take Responsibility for My Actions
2) I Will Seek Wisdom
3) I Am a Person of Action
4) I Have a Decided Heart
5) I Will Choose to be Happy
6) I Will Greet This Day with a Forgiving Spirit
7) I Will Persist Without Exception
Have you made these same decisions in your life? Do you seek wisdom? Do you choose to be happy?
Andy says making these seven decisions in your life will determine your personal success. To cement these decisions into your daily routine, Andy encourages you to read each decision you make aloud – morning and night, for 21 days and share your decisions with others.
Is this something you can implement in your life? If you did, how could it change your future? If enough individual futures were changed by your decision, could it change civilization?
The answer? Yes. Yes, your decision matters. You matter. You are important. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise… and don’t give up. Doing the right thing always wins in the long run.
