The Choice by Og Mandino

The Choice

by Og Mandino

I have absolutely no recollection at all of delivering a speech.  I do remember approaching the flag-draped podium with its battery of microphones and acknowledging the thunderous applause with nervous waves and smiles.

I can also remember bowing and tossing kisses to the bobbing ocean of smiling faces at the finish, during what David later told me exultantly was twenty-minute, standing ovation.  Of the speech itself, nothing.  Zero recall!  Not even when Louise replayed it for me on our home video recorded was I able to recognize a single phrase I had uttered.

Five days after my Yankee Stadium appearance, on Sunday, October 3, Goliath Books ran full page ads in thirty of the major newspapers in the United States, reprinting the speech verbatim, except for my opening greetings to the people and my thanks to David Coronet for his magnificent introduction.

A copy of the speech, from one of the advertisements, follows . . .

THE KEY TO A BETTER LIFE

Man or woman . . . wherever these words have found you, turn away from your travail and struggles of the hour and give me your hand.  Come with me on a mission of exploration, a journey of the mind that may help you to change your life for the better.

“The best way to predict your future is to create it. So believe in your dream. Never throw it away. “

Craig's Quotes

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.

So believe in your dream. Never throw it away.

Believe in the dream even when it is impossible.

Believe in the stars, even when they’re hidden in the storm.

Believe in love, even when you can’t find it or feel it.

Believe in faith, even when God is silent.

So turn your hurts into halos and your deepest scars into the brightest stars.

And when it’s time eventually to take your last breath…

you will come to the end of your journey with pride behind you, love around you and hope ahead of you.”

The best way to predict your future is to create it … – Martin-Luther-King
