MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“It is our decisions not our conditions that determine our quality of life.”–JOHN C. MAXWELL
Hi, I'm glad you're with us on Minute with Maxwell. I have a statement of strength for you today that I hope encourages you. And by the way, are you sharing these with your friends? I think that during this time of difficulty, it's very important for us to do everything we can in a positive way to help and add value to other people.
This is a quote that I've given often. It's a quote on decisions, and here it is: It is our decisions, not our conditions, that determine the quality of our life. Now, if you would ask the average person on the street the question: Is it the conditions of life or the decisions of life that are most important? Most people would say, well, it's the conditions. In fact, they basically would say the conditions determine what my decisions are. Wow! That's kind of turned around, isn't it? It's our decisions, not our conditions, that determine our quality of life.
You see, conditions are often out of my control. I don't control the weather. I certainly have no control over this [Corona] virus. Conditions are most of the time beyond me; I can't control them. But decisions are always within my control. That's why, by the way, you can see two people in a crisis and one of them is growing and being positive in it, and the other is just kind of withdrawing and being negative. Same conditions, same situation, but different decisions. One decides to be the victim, and one decides to be the victor. It's your choice. That's the only thing within your control.
Thanks for being with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
