“The greatest power a person possesses is the power to choose.” ~J. Martin Kohe.
There’s a big difference between the attitude towards life of a person who wants to live as opposed to somebody who doesn’t want to die. When you concentrate on what you want as opposed to what you don’t want, you live.
From a sporting point of view; the team who puts all their players on the goal line to prevent the other team from scoring are trying not to lose, that strategy will not allow them to win. The team that sets up that way are trying not to lose as opposed to trying to win.
Your positive attitude towards life means everything because it helps you to focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. I’ll leave you with one final thought:
“Every man dies, not every man really lives.” ~William Wallace
