“Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make different choices.” – Unknown
Our life comprises of the choices that we make every single minute of our existence. Whether to drink coffee or tea, to take white sugar or brown, to go for jog or stay at home eating ‘parathas’ for breakfast it’s your choice. You decide which shirt you will wear today, what you talk, how you react. Which path you select in your career, whom you will marry are nothing but your choices that you made either on your own accord or by someone’s influence.
Your life so far consists of all the choices you made in past, and your future no doubt depends on all the decisions you will take from now on. Choices we make and path we take create our lives. We take plethora of decisions; make choices at every step in our journey. Sometimes we celebrate these choices and sometimes we bear the consequences of these decisions. But in either case it’s always us who are responsible for those choices.
Whether we take responsibilities of our choices or not, these choices shape up our life. It makes us different from our peers, it makes us who we are today and what results we are seeing in our life.
Many time people make same choices as they made in past but still expect to get better results. How can one justify it? To get better results you have to make better choices. If you want to be healthy but you keep on eating thing you were eating one year back how can you envision to change anything. Your results are the outcome of the choices that you make every day so to improve your results change your choices, take better decisions.
Sometimes our choices are wrong and we realize it way too late to make any change. But instead of worrying too much about those choices and feeling miserable about it, it’s always better to move on. Past in unaltered, choices you made in past cannot be changed but it can teach you lessons to make better choices in future. Choices are the foundation of your life and wrong choices are part of learning cycle, it makes you human.
Only thing that you can do is make better choices in future by taking conscious decisions and taking full responsibilities of all your choices. Remember what choices you make is completely in your control, it has always been and it will always be that way.
“We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.”
