Make A Choice And Change Your Future

Make A Choice And Change Your FutureMaybe you want your life to be better… or maybe you want to make it worse. Whichever way you want to go, all that you have to do is make a choice. Make a choice and change your future because a decision is all that it takes.

Make A Choice And Change Your Future

Our lives, at least our present lives are nothing more than the sum totals of all the decisions that we have made along the way because in the end… our decisions are our destiny.

Today’s results are the product of your past decisions and subsequent actions based on those decisions, for good or bad.

Why your life and your destiny are are shaping up the way they are? It is because of the decisions that you have made, and in some cases due to the decisions that you refused or decided not to make.

  • Why didn’t you make better grades in high school?
  • Why didn’t you go to college, and if you did, why did you not do well?
  • Why aren’t you working in a fabulous career?
  • Why are you not in a healthy and supportive relationship?
  • Why are you not taking better care of your health?
  • Why aren’t you happier?

The answers to all of these questions fall into the realms of you didn’t want to, you didn’t want to be, or you don’t want to be. Your decisions become your destiny and until you decide you really want something different then how can it manifest itself in your life? Back then you had the chance to change the future (which is now) you just didn’t decide to for whatever reason.

But it’s not too late…

If you want a new job, make that decision and based on that decision start taking action. It might take a bit to find it but I can guarantee that it will never happen until you decide to make it so. If you are unhappy in your job and choose to do nothing about it, well, you can sort out your future and destiny quite easily then… nothing will change and you will be just as unhappy, if not more, a year from now doing the same thing.

Your decisions are your destiny so take an active role in making the best decisions based on what you want in your life. It takes time, it takes attention, and sometimes you have to forgo the short-term win for the longer-term championship. But it is a skill that you can learn and master. When faced with those types of choices, I always ask myself this… “Will this take me further away or move me closer to my goal or objective?” If you can apply that question to your decisions, I promise you will see different outcomes and a new and more positive future will unfold for you.

We all have the ability to change the future. Make a choice and change your future if you do not like where you are right now. Will it magically change everything overnight? Probably not, but when you start making “better” decisions or decisions that are more in line with the life that you want, you will be on the right course. After that it just comes down to practicing that kind of decision making on a more consistent basis.
