“Chance or Choice”
Think a minute…There was a man who was the owner of the only hair salon in his little town. He cut and styled the hair of almost everybody in town and his business was quite successful. Then, a big modern hair salon moved to his town right across the street from his little shop.
This new, big salon advertised in the newspapers and posted signs all over town that read: “$6 haircuts! Everything for only $6!”
Soon almost all his customers began going to the new salon across the street for $6 haircuts.
The owner of the old hair salon knew he could never afford to beat the big new salon’s price of only $6. But then he thought of a way to turn things around and win his customers and business back.
He had a local sign company paint him a big sign which he put in front of his hair salon. It read: “We FIX $6 haircuts!”
We all have problems and go through tough times. It’s the people who respond and handle those problems positively who end up succeeding in life. It’s not luck that controls your life! It’s your own choices that make you happy and successful.
You see, “Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.” No matter what happens these people keep going, because sooner or later “Tough people win over tough times.”
Remember, the same heat that melts butter also hardens clay. The difference is in their response. How about you? How do you respond? How do you handle the heat of problems and tough times in your life? No matter which way the ball bounces, it’s still your game.
So today, if you’ll ask Jesus Christ to take full charge of your life, He’ll start working everything, including your problems and pressures, together for your good. So why not start living His way every day? You can’t lose. Just Think a Minute…
