I begin to think and it got to me that the only difference between people in jail and people outside jail is bad choices. At a particular point of their lives, they had either two or several choices to make but they decided to pick the wrong one. Some of us have been in their shoes before, while some of us either made the right choice, some of us made the wrong one and didn’t get caught. So what are we saying? Your destiny is based on the choices you make. After everything, what you are and who you become depends on the choices we make. Making a good choice, it starts with your thoughts which will soon become your words, which will soon become your actions, which becomes your habits, which becomes your character, and finally becomes your destiny.
As humans, we are constantly making decisions that alter the shapes of our lives; whether good or bad. And the interesting thing is that most of the the times, the choices we make don’t affect us alone, it affects people around us, affects our society, affects the way people think about us.
Nowadays, everyone says Life’s too short and sometimes says YOLO which means you only live once. since we have this at the back of our mind, why don’t we make the choices that will steer our short lives in the right direction. Steve Jobs once said, “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Your life is a product of the choices we make. Some of us say they are some choices we can’t make, like the family we enter into and the people we meet. but in those circumstances, you can choose to be the architect of our life. the captain of your ship. Don’t blame your misfortunes on anybody. Do not let your background put you in the background. Do not live your life by chance but rather paint in your mind the future you desire and work towards it. You have to play a part in whats becoming of tomorrow. Don’t assume!!
We might have made bad choices before, but why don’t we sit down, Get Over Our Bad Choices and start making Good ones. REMEMBER THERE’S LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL.
EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN DESTINY BUT NOT EVERYONE MAKES THE CHOICE TO PURSUE IT.
“The consequences of today are determined by the actions of the past. To change your future, alter your decisions today.”
