Today I, ____________________, will make choices that lead me toward lasting happiness.
“While you are free to choose your course of action, you are not free to choose the consequences.” – For the Strength of Youth
Today and for the rest of the segment, I, ____________________, commit to consider the consequences of my actions.
“You will have challenges and hard decisions to make throughout your life. But determine now to always do what is right and let the consequence follow. The consequence will always be for your best good. You will learn that it is easiest over the long run to stand for what is right and do the difficult thing to begin with. Once you take that position, following through is not too hard. An individual who cuts corners and justifies some departure from true standards for whatever reason finds that seeds are planted that produce problems later. Those problems are far more difficult to overcome than taking a correct stand initially.” – Do What Is Right by Richard G. Scott
