Every moment of your life from the minute you wake up to the time you go to bed, you are making decisions. You have a choice whether to start a healthy morning routine or to stay in bed and procrastinate. You have a choice on what to consume on social media; either you read inspirational articles or absorb all the negativities and fake news that you can lay your eyes on. In short, it is all in your hands because you are a product of your decisions. You have a choice to be happy and be grateful or to be sad and be miserable. What is your choice?
I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.– Stephen Covey
Stop the Blame Game
Many people love to play the blame game. If something has gone wrong, these people will automatically blame other people, the government, an event, the state of affairs or their circumstances. These people actually learned the habit of justifying their negative situation by blaming others.
If you know somebody who loves to play the blame game, stay away. They are one of those toxic people that you should avoid. In school, you have learned that everything around you is matter. And matter is energy. So, there is positive and negative energy everywhere around you. Remember that like attracts like. If you don’t want to attract negative things into your life, learn to stay away from negative individuals.
But what if you are one of these people? Listen to yourself. If something goes wrong in your life, do you blame others or do you take responsibility for your actions? You see, success only happens to those who admit their shortcomings. Instead of blaming others, analyze what went wrong and learn from the experience. That is the only way to regain control of your life.
You Are A Product of Your Decisions
The truth is your life is a product of the decisions that you made. You are where you are today because of you not because of anything or anyone else. Whatever situation you are in right now, remember that you have a choice. It is up to you to create the results that you want. Make the decision now. Your future begins today!
If you are born poor, it’s not your mistake but if you die poor, it’s your mistake.– Bill Gates
