When you pull out of your driveway in the morning, are you in a state of rejoicing – or regret?
As we go through our day, we are constantly making choices based on the values we hold within ourselves. Think how many of those values have been imposed upon you over the years—from work, friends, family, and society. Think for a moment about how those values define you, much more than the things you have.
When you are able to experience any given value in your life – fully and completely – you can create something for rejoicing. Denying those values creates regret. The power to choose between rejoicing and regret is ours, and ours alone. We can all make great strides in our daily lives by realizing how much more powerful and enriching our day could be when we decide to rejoice.
How might you go forward by creating more deep and lasting moments of rejoicing – instead of reacting for the short term with regret?
Can you celebrate today and everyday in some small way?
Andrew Grant is the world’s first hybrid taxi driver. He introduced his Prius taxi to the not-so-mean streets of Vancouver in 2000, and logged 200,000 miles in just 25 months. Andrew’s Prius was snatched by Toyota. The automaker wanted a chance to study the durability of the hybrid batteries and other components, which held up amazingly well. See this video for details. He’s now driving his third Prius. Andrew has taken a break from taxi-driving, and now works as a professional coach helping his clients achieve personal excellence in various fields of endeavor.
