Daily Motivator for November 23rd – Not just the easiest

Not just the easiest

Taking the easy way out does not usually end up being very easy. Taking the  easy way out in the short run will make things much more difficult in the long  run.

You have the choice to completely deal with each problem when it arises.  That’s much better, and ultimately easier, than simply delaying the consequences  until later.

You have the ability to speak the truth, and to take responsibility for your  actions. In the end, that’s easier than making increasingly difficult efforts to  hide who you are and what you’ve done.

The life you experience in the future is determined by the way you act right  now. Consider each of your choices in light of its overall impact on your life,  not just based on what’s easiest for the moment.

The quick and easy answers can often lead to lingering, difficult  consequences. The way to live a life that’s good is to honestly work through the  difficulties rather than avoid them.

You deserve the best in life, and not just the easiest, least effective  answers. You deserve the richness and fulfillment that a life of responsibility  brings.
