So Much Is Beyond Our Control, but Your Choices Are Not Included in That Lot

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”  Albus Dumbledore to Harry Potter

We all experience moments of weakness, even despair, when it feels like life is happening to us, totally out of our control.  We hear the voice in our head saying, “You’re not good enough, not smart enough, not … enough.”

Remember, while everything is not within your control, your choices are.  And your choices, more than anything else, will determine your future.  You can choose to focus on the misery of your past, or choose to focus on those who hurt you.  You can choose to procrastinate and wait until tomorrow to begin.

Or you can choose to begin improving your life right now.  You can choose to improve your abilities.  You can choose to learn a new skill.  You can choose to associate with the people who are heading in the right direction in life, people on the road to success.  You can choose discipline today in order to avoid regret tomorrow.

It is our choices that show what we truly are.  And our choices that will determine how far we will go in this life.  May your choices today bring you closer to your dreams tomorrow.

  1. Wayne Dyer quote: “Everything you do is based on the choices you make. It’s not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy, the weather, an argument, or your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. Period.”

    Nice post!
