Oh, we will Certainly
talk a lot about Choices here!
Our Human freedom gives us absolute control of
our thoughts, attitudes, positions, actions, and results. We can choose to be sad or happy; proud or
disappointed; a success or a failure! Even your health is strongly tied to your thoughts. All of these choices
are always taking place, but the majority of people will simply choose not to choose, and let things happen to
them! They will blame “Bad Luck” for any undesirable situation, and envy the “Good Luck” of those who achieve
the good things in life.
It is not that we deliberately make bad choices,
but rather that we apathetically avoid making the right ones. We also can choose to make no choices at all,
which is the worst situation. It is like getting on a boat without a rudder. Most people go through life just
letting the currents or the winds take them wherever those elements want. Those currents and winds are called:
The effect of our social group will be extremely
influential in our lives. Sometimes we have fallen into our current social group by doing nothing. People who do
nothing to choose the persons they associate with or are surrounded by, do not have the privilege to select
their environment or social group.
The more diligent you become at making these
social choices, the better off you will be in your life performance. In order to become the person you really
want to be, you need to behave like that person would, to begin with. In order to modify your behavior, you need
to be close to the people who have achieved that level of performance that you would like to enjoy. Observe and
you will find the reasons behind each of their actions and attitudes, and therefore, adopt them
At times it will be difficult for us to establish a distance from some of the not too positive
relationships; but the effort is worth it. You do not need to turn them into your enemies, but simply avoid
teaming up with them.
It is a fact of Mother Nature that species flock
together. Find the right people and do whatever it takes to integrate into their group. Dare to choose a new
group. Analyze how you need to behave in such way that your chosen group will accept and welcome you. Choose to
use their language, their attitudes, and their responses to situations; cooperate, learn, share what you can in
order to be a contributor and also a potential Leader in that group.
