“You Are Now at a Crossroad” / “There is No Such Thing as ‘Should’”


“Life is the sum of all of your choices.”   (Albert Camus)



“You are now at a crossroad.  This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make.  Forget your past.  Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now?  Don’t think about who you have been.  Who are you now?  Who have you decided to become?  Make this decision consciously.  Make it carefully.  Make it powerfully.”   (Anthony Robbins)



“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notion unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.”   (Marcus Aurelius Antoninus)



“The three grand essentials of happiness are:  something to do, someone to love, and something to hope for.”   (Alexander Chalmers)



“Risk more than others think is safe.  Care more than others think is wise.  Dream more than others think is practical.  Expect more than others thinks is possible.”   (Cadet Maxim)



“There is no such thing as ‘should’.  You shouldn’t do anything you don’t want to do. You shouldn’t work a job you don’t like.  You shouldn’t hang out with people that don’t make you happy.  You shouldn’t eat food that doesn’t make you feel good.  You shouldn’t do anything that doesn’t make you feel the way you want to feel.

Be honest with yourself.  Change ‘should’ to ‘want” in your sentences and if whatever it is still seems like a good idea go for it, if not, don’t.

Except maybe go to the dentist, you should probably do that.”   (Uplifted Vibrations)



“You are free to believe what you choose and what you do attest to what you believe.”   (A Course in Miracles)



“You just have to decide if you’re a Tigger or an Eeyore.”  (Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture)
