I was nominated to complete this challenge by Matters of Living. I am a fan of the positivity and fun that comes from the work on the page. I am appreciative of the challenge because I love writing challenges of all types!
Before I begin, I want to offer the challenge today to three people because I know they can deliver positive quotes to make you feel good about life.
- Keith Haney-The Light Breaks Through
- Mar Watercolor-The Bold Mom
- Cosmic Explorer-Universe Unexplored
It is now time to get into today challenge and inspiration for day #1. Here is today’s quote brought to you my wife, Fatimah Fite.
“Do what you do, but be prepared to accept the consequences.” -Fatimah Fite
Keep this in mind whenever you do anything in your life.
I want to want to start off by asking you this question:
- Are you ready to do what you do with your actions?
Here are four facts about the actions that you make:
- There will be some actions that will prove to be beneficial while others become costly.
- There will be some actions that will prove to have short-term effects while others will have long-term effects.
- There will be some actions that you will remember while other actions you will make will be forgettable.
- There will be some actions that will help you become successful while other actions will help you become a failure.
As you think about these facts, I must ask you one important question that you must answer for all of your actions:
- Are you prepared to accept the consequences?
As you are thinking about this question, here are four facts about your consequences:
- Whether or not you know the consequences or not, there are still consequences attached to every decision you make.
- You cannot run away from or delay the consequences that await you.
- You will never know the full effect of the consequences until you face them head on.
- The consequences will leave you will lessons that will change your life for either better or for worse.
If you are prepared to accept the consequences after reading the facts, then go ahead and do what you do. If you are not prepared to accept the consequences, then I will offer up one last question that you must answer when you measure everything up about your actions and consequences:
- Is it worth it to do what you do?
Let’s remember that you may choose to either to do or not to do it despite the consequences, but if your actions do not produce the outcome that you expect or desire, then it is time for you to reconsider what you are doing.
In my question section, I only have the three questions above for you to give some thought about your actions from this point forward. You may choose to share your answers or keep them to yourself, but I want you understand that there is a value attached to your actions and consequences.
