“Be miserable.— Wayne Dyer
Or motivate yourself.
Whatever has to be done,
it’s always your choice.”
“I can control my destiny,— Paulo Coelho
but not my fate.
there are opportunities
to turn right or left,
but fate is a one-way street.
I believe we all have the choice
as to whether we fulfil our destiny,
but our fate is sealed.”
“The self is not something ready-made,— John Dewey
but something in continuous formation
through choice of action.”
Today’s MotD reminds us that we always have a choice; our options may be limited at times but we always have a choice. Even not choosing is a choice. We sometimes forget this especially when we’re in a situation that lends itself to victimhood (ie: they made me do it, I had no choice, etc)
Our challenge becomes 1) recognizing all of our options, 2) consciously choosing one (or not), and 3) (most importantly) taking full responsibility for that choice.
“Everything can be taken— Victor Frankl
from a [person] but one thing:
the last of the human freedoms
—to choose one’s attitude
in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one’s own way.”
