You Are Shaping Your Future With Every Choice You Make
The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them, changes both the maker and the destination. ~Author Unknown
While there are surely some factors we cannot control, such as the economy and the weather, we do choose how we respond, so ultimately the big finger of praise or blame must point right back at the image we see in the mirror, because the reality is our lives are the culmination of the choices we make every single day. Choices that either lengthen or close the gap between our current reality and the life we really want and deserve.
To have the ability to make choices is a great power as well as an enormous responsibility. And with each choice there is a consequence. Of course, there are many who play the blame game for things that happen to them in life and there are others who assume the victim role, rationalizing to self that their reality is someone else’s fault or simply bad luck.
Whatever you call it, there are moments in all our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroad. The choices we make in those moments, and our willingness or refusal to accept the consequences, can define the rest of our days.
For many people this is actually the biggest challenge they’ll face in the entire process of creating a life plan because they are not comfortable thinking in terms of their own wants and desires. In fact it may even feel selfish or egotistical to spend time focusing on what choices will bring them happiness and a fulfilled life.
The simple truth is that if you are feeling like your life’s not your own it’s because up to now you have been relinquishing your power and time to others. They may not consciously realize it, probably didn’t intend it … and they certainly didn’t come by it naturally. You had to give it to them. So now you have to exercise your power to take it back.
If you desire to change your current reality the first step is to accept that you are the one in control of your time and your choices. YOU can decide this very moment to start closing that gap and creating the life you really want for yourself.
