“You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”  – Dr. Seuss


The power of choice.

I often sign off by writing, “Life is change.

Growth is optional.

Choose wisely.

Live Upside.”


And, I also often share about the importance of making decisions that are centered around YOU.

If you do not choose to take care of yourself – your personal health and well-being – how can you be giving 100% (your very best)  to your relationships, your loved ones, and your work?

The Upside Challenge this week is to examine the direction in which you are currently choosing and choose to put yourself first. 

Take time to take care of your health (yes, pick up the phone and make that doctor’s appointment) and treat yourself once a day to something you love and something that feeds your soul, to some alone time,read a good book even if only for 30 minutes, to a good bubble bath or massage, or a round of golf.

Caring for yourself is the only way to ensure that you give the best of yourself to you, your family, and your work – and the world.

Because you will never get an opportunity to walk this way again.

Life is change.  Growth is optional. Choose wisely.  Choose Upside.

See Upside. Be Upside. Live Upside.
