Our Choices in the past.
Our lives Tomorrow, will be the result of
the Choices we make Today!
What would we do today,
That will make a difference tomorrow?
How true isn’t it? If we continue to make the same choices we have made in the past, how could we expect something different today?
If life is like a book we received at birth as what Dorothy mentioned in her blog, how are we writing each chapter? Our parents have already helped to write the introduction for us and now it is up to us to complete the rest of the chapters in the book.
Is the book going to be one that grabs the readers’ attention and keeps them going from one chapter to another? Or is it going to be one the readers will put down after reading the first chapter and know exactly what they can expect in the following chapters or even the conclusion?
Whatever it is, it is up to us what we want to write in the book. And since we are stuck with the writing, why not make it an exciting one – starting from today! We cannot erase what have already been written, but we sure can start rewriting life with different choices from today.
How our stories will turn out depend on the choices we are making each day. From a past training I went to previously, the trainer was telling us not to look at the current status in our lives and decide that that is how we would be in the future. He stated that our current status in life are the reflection of the choices we had made in the past. So if we are unhappy about our current status in life, we have to start making different choices now. Quoting Jim Rohn, “If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.” We certainly are not trees where we are rooted, we can move and change.
As the saying goes, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” If we change our choices, we can hope to create a new future.
Life has always been about making choices. Even if we refuse to make any choice, it is still a choice we made in not making any choice. There are times we may feel that we are not in control of how some situations are turning out and yes we cannot always control what goes on outside. But we do have the power to control what goes on inside us. Tap on that power inside us to make the choice.
Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. What would we do today, that will make a difference tomorrow?
