Today, we are taking our inspiration from the book, Choose Yourself by James Altucher. This does not mean that you should be selfish, going around caring about no one else but yourself but the truth is, if you don’t choose yourself first, you cannot be chosen and you can’t truly choose and love others.
A few of our favorite quotes from the book by Altucher
“Nobody can tell you what to do. No matter what they pay you. No matter what obligations you feel you owe them. Every second defines you. Be who you are, not who anyone else is, or who anyone else wants you to be.” ― James Altucher
“Every time you say yes to something you don’t want to do, this will happen: you will resent people, you will do a bad job, you will have less energy for the things you were doing a good job on, you will make less money, and yet another small percentage of your life will be used up, burned up, a smoke signal to the future saying, “I did it again.” ― James Altucher
Be kinder to yourself this new week, accept who you are and work towards being more and doing more… choose yourself, warts and all!
