Thanks for reading, I have just come across a great quote today and I just wanted to expand on the quote and give my interpretation on how I understand it. The great thing about quotes is they are powerful statements usually made by influential and memorable people but actually they could be read by 100 different people and it would mean something slightly different to all of us.
The quote I saw today was by Jeff Bezos
“Everything you are comes from your choices”
This is something I believe in very strongly and if you want to make big changes in your life, it’s something you need to be really aware and conscious of at all times.
Every decision we make, every act we carry out and everything we achieve comes through a serious of choices we have made be it positive or negative. We have the ability to shape our lives and decide whether or not to be successful based on our choices.
You have a choice on how you take care of your body and how you eat and whether or not your exercise. You are able to choose whether or not you want to stay in that job that makes you miserable doing just enough not to get sacked or whether you go to work everyday doing something you love and enjoy in which you could go on and be successful.
I am not suggesting that all choices are easy and the quality of your life will change over night but you have to make that choice to start somewhere. You may be 10-15 years away from your end goal and where you want to be but you can choose to make today that first step in achieving greatness. All you have to do is to make the conscious effort to be the best you can be at every given moment and try and get a little better each day.
If things are not working for you right now and you are not in the place you want to be, I am sure if you look back over the last few weeks, months or years you will come across a series of choices that you made however big or small that helped contribute to your current situation.
Sometimes it is easier to bury our heads in the sand and look to blame others and convince ourselves that everything is out of our control but if you really look hard and are open and honest with yourself there will be a whole series’s of choices you have made where you could have made better ones, however that is ok in fact that is awesome the very fact that you are able to see it and understand is the first step in knowing how to fix it and put it right. All of sudden there you are making the choices to turn things around.
