“The history of free men is never written by chance, but by choice – their choice.” Eisenhower
It is already 13 days into the new year. And before we all know it, this year will come to an end. What you will achieve at the end of the year will depend on the choices you make on a daily basis. Whatsover you will achieve will be a result of the accumulation of the choices you have made all along the way. So, if you are not making right choices, it is not too late to start now.
The ball lies in your court. Nobdoy has the responsibility to make the right choices for you. Your parents may try to make choices for you. But the result you will get is due to your choices. It is all about the choices you make on a daily basis. You need to know that:
- You can have as much money as you choose to.
- You can weigh what you choose to.
- You can have the job you choose to have.
- You can have the level of peace that you choose to have.
- You can do anything you choose to do.
Everybody has the ability to choose but the truth is that how many of us really make use of this gift? Dogs don’t have it. Cows don’t have it. Trees and flowers don’t have it. The only living creatures that have the ability to choose are humans. All of the rest of living creatures live by instinct, or in the case of trees, flowers etc, they live wherever they are planted.
Your ability to choose is a privilege that you have been given. This alone should give you enough motivation and the discipline required to make the right choices. So, will you start to exercise your privilege today? Make choices today that will make you, your family and your community better off!
