to live by choice, not by chance;

    to make changes, not excuses;

    to be motivated, not manipulated;

    to be useful, not used;

    to excel, not compete.

I CHOOSE self-esteem,

    not self-pity.

I CHOOSE to listen to my inner voice,

    not the random opinions of others.

What do YOU choose?

    The choice is always yours.

Make choices that inspire and empower you!
