Life is full of choices and this is something we are all aware of. The most powerful choice you have to make is how you view your life. The first choice is life happens and you react. Choice 2, You are the director of your life
There is no wrong choice and that’s the great thing about this. This is your life so you get to decide which is best for you. However, each option produces extremely different results. Choose the option that has the end result you believe is best for you even though the best approach is perhaps not to choose which option you like.
In Life Choice 1, the End Result is Unknown
Determining the outcome is quite impossible here. Why? Because your life’s outcome is what you’re letting everyone and everything else determine for you. There is one constant and that is you spending your life reacting to the events around you.
But beware: many who choose this road end up considering themselves a victim of life. Spotting a Life Choice #1 individual is easy because they are full of excuses and are quick to blame others. Like why they’re late every day to work (“traffic is horrible”), why they have no job (“nobody will hire me”), why they don’t have supportive relationships (“my parents didn’t teach me who to look for”), and in general, why they just can’t seem to get ahead.
End Result of Life Choice 2, Known
Because you are in charge, the outcome here is much better defined. In your life, there are main characters, supporting casts, dramatic events, and a few twists in the plot, so essentially it’s like a movie. In Life Choice #2, the exciting part is that you are also the director in your own life. What’s the role of directors? Edit. Reviewing. They revise. They add love, action, and comedy and anything else that makes the movie best.
You take responsibility for your actions and accept the consequences, both negative and positive so it’s easy to spot a person who has chosen Life Choice #2. The end result is that your life is yours.
Do You Know Who Directs Your Life?
You…or everyone else? (If you don’t make a choice, then it’s not an option but rather a passive way of picking Life Choice #1 and letting life happen.) Now is the time to actively take control of your life. What path do you choose?
