Life Starts At B (Birth) and Ends At D (death) But
The C in the Middle Represents Choice.
The choices you make between B and D are what define your life.
When I was younger it seems I made every mistake possible. I made wrong turns that took me to dead ends, then turned around and wandered right into sinkholes and pits of quicksand! At one point, I felt that bad luck ruled my life, but that was not really true. What ruled my life were the choices I made for myself. I blamed everyone but myself for my life when in fact I was in charge. I made those choices and I suffered the consequences of my actions.
To this day, I am not exactly sure why it is so easy to blame others for what we have clearly brought on ourselves, but I know that I am not the only person who has lived this way at one time or another. I know that I am to blame for everything that happened to me, but I also know that learning that I could make better choices was what liberated me from that terrible life I was living. Why is it so hard for mankind to come to the realization that we are responsible for our own actions when learning this fact is so liberating?
I believe that the reason people have such a hard time making good choices and taking responsibility for their own actions is simple: it is more comfortable to push the responsibility to someone else than it is to examine our own lives. It is painful to look at the mistakes we have made and even more painful to make lasting changes. However, if you can, you will find that a new world opens up for you, one that is filled with much better consequences. Just as making bad choices results in bad results, making good choices will ultimately pay off in good results for you and a better life for yourself and those who care about you.
Choose today to take control of your life and your choices and watch what a difference it makes in your results!
