No Matter What the Question Choose Yourself

On an airplane, if you fail to choose yourself first, you may end up deprived of air, dead and of no use to those around you. Life on the ground is the same way. Before you choose your spouse, your children or your job, you must choose yourself. No matter how little sense it makes to those around you, you must choose yourself first so that you are prepared mentally, emotionally, spiritually and perhaps physically to help others and meet your obligations to others. This philosophy works at work and at home.

At work when you have a pile of things on your to-do list and the inbox is overflowing and there are meetings happening and about to happen. Stop. Pause. Take the time to think about what you have to do and which of those things will be most beneficial, helpful and expedient to you. That is the thing that you should take care of first and foremost. Before you choose among tasks at work, choose yourself. Put on your own air mask and then save the day, make the decision and do the job at work. At home before you choose your husband, your children, your dishes and your laundry. Choose yourself. Figure out which decision will enable you to live with yourself best. Which decision, which choice will help you to feel better about the next choice? Make that choice then the next.



In all you do, put on your own air mask, choose yourself first because that makes it easier for you to make all the other choices you have to make. Take time today to think about the choices before you. What decisions must you make? Think about what would happen if when you made the next choice, you chose yourself then made the other decisions. How would your world be different?
