We are who we are… by choice
“I am not good enough…”
“Why am I not born in that rich family…”
We tend to always put the blame on others when things don’t turn out the way we want them to be. We would blame others for causing our miseries, and influencing our course of actions which, apparently, lead to more miseries. And are we supposed to stay this way and be the person whom we think we should be, complaining all day?
Choice is all we need to break out the vicious cycle that keeps us trapped in our own minds. Whether one chooses to look on the bright side, or to dwell on the negativity is all entirely a stage play in the mind. We choose what we want to see and believe. But how many of us actually choose the happier and successful path?
Successful people choose to think differently, they work on their problems and solve all challenges along the way. They are who they are, leading successes in life, after overcoming the hardships and life challenges because of the single word, ‘Choice’. One could be complaining all day on how poor they are; yet another person could put in 110% effort trying to get out of the rat race. Even if one fails, he had chosen to do something about it. And these kind of people will choose to push on further, until he succeeds.
Success can come in different form, wealth, career, family, relationships, etc. We are all given a choice to work on them as we grow. Even if we’re less privileged than the others, we could choose to be optimistic and work things out; even if we had to take a longer path than the others, we could choose to look forward till we reach our destination. We become who we are because we choose to. Do we choose to become fat? Most of the time is yes, we choose to allow us to become fat because we did not have the right diet, we did not choose to resist the temptation to eat junk food.
Though we can’t choose which family to be born into, we have the choice to direct our life in the way we want and hope it to be when we come into this world. Life is full of choices, and it’s up to us to choose wisely to be successful or miserable in life.
