“Your life doesn’t just ‘happen.’ Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you,” insisted Stephen Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. “The choices, after all, are yours. You choose happiness. You choose sadness. You choose decisiveness. You choose ambivalence. You choose success. You choose failure.” He added, “Just remember that every moment, every situation, provides a new choice. And in doing so, it gives you a perfect opportunity to do things differently to produce more positive results.”
