Two choices

In most things, there’s usually two choices. You either do it or you don’t do it. You either say something about it or you don’t say a thing.   There’s a third choice  – you can choose to ignore the issue, do nothing for now. Make a decision later = sometimes it turns out to be a non-decision. Sometimes, when you leave a decision for later, you’re asking for the decision to be made for you. By the situation, by the expiry of the circumstance calling for a decision or by a decision from someone else.   At times like this, we like to argue about all the shades of grey but there are times when things are clearly black or white.   I believe you should always make that choice. Even when you’re scared or unsure. Make that choice. It’s yours to be made, assuming its your choice and not someone else’s you’re appropriating. There are times when life makes choices for you and you have to live by them, live these experiences out. But many times, you have that choice. You have the ability to decide what you want to do and how you want to act about whatever is in front of you. Frequently, we feel that we have no choice. Especially when things are tough. When your mind is blocked off, when you have too much on your plate, when you’ve been pushed too much, the easy route is to think that what you see before you, is what you have. But perhaps its only the tip of the iceberg. It’s just what’s in front of you. You need to run this thing through.  You need to process it and make sense of it for yourself. You need to think about it well.   When it comes down to it, you’ll find that the people that win, that succeed, don’t always accept what is in front of them. They don’t always take as a given the choices they are presented with. But that is because they have a goal and somewhere they want to be. And nothing gets in the way. Every obstacle is just something they need to surmount or overcome. That can make life very difficult sometimes. But you don’t need to treat every aspect of your life like this — only the parts of it that really matter to you.   You can lie down and take whatever comes your way. Or you can fight it because you know where you want to be. You know what it is that you want to do. And when you do know what it is that you want to do and where you want to be, it’s not hard to do overcome. Because your mind’s eye is focused on something bigger. But first you have to ask yourself, what do I want. You have to ask yourself, do I have a plan as to where I want to be? And more importantly, how much do I want to overcome to get there?
