I would like you to make a life-changing pledge today. Can you control the length of your life? Of course, you cannot. A great but anonymous writer says you cannot:
“You cannot control the length of your life, but you can control its breadth, depth and height.”
Real words of wisdom. I believe they are worth personalizing. If you don’t mind it, I would like you to modify the sentence as follows and say aloud:
“I cannot control the length of my life; but I can control its breathe, depth and height.”
If you have said it, I thank you; and congratulate you on your humility. Humility is a quality of great people.
Why not go a step further? You have stated a possibility. I want you to make a pledge. Put it this way:
“I cannot control the length of my life; but I will control its breathe, depth and height.” Say it out; with conviction.
Beautiful isn’t it? Thank you for such a beautiful pledge.
To complete the exercise, I propose that you type it out and paste it where you will see often. Read it as often as you can. Let it sink into you. Above all, make sure you live up to it.
