Choose Wisely Now For Later

Choose Wisely Now…For Later

“Wise men store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.” Proverbs 10:14

I just talked with a grandmother who is hurting over her granddaughter’s choices. When I told her that I was heading to a coffee shop to provide coaching for some incredible people, she wanted me to pass along a message. She wanted to make sure they knew that the decisions they make now will affect their future.

Some people never stop to realize that what they do early on will affect their reputation. The decisions they make now with their relationships will affect their marriage later on. And, the way they approach God will determine their faith for years to come.

The doorway to your future is nearer than you think. It is right in front of you. Before you know it, years will have slipped by, relationships will have been established, habits will have been formed, and reputations will have been built. These patterns are not inescapable, but they are deeply rooted and difficult to change. If you choose wisely now, you will be pleased later. If you make poor decisions now, you will have a lot to overcome in the future.

This grandma also wants to make sure that you know that the decisions you make now will affect your future. As your coach, I want to know if her advice will affect your life.

Will it?

Don’t give me a verbal answer. Just prove it by the way you live.
