The power to choose must surely be the most puissant force available to us. Apart from the awareness of different options, which in itself bears testimony to some kind of intellectual process, the activity of choosing is the proof of freedom.
That is why it is so very wrong to allow someone or something else to decide on your behalf. If you do not decide what you would like for your life, someone else will. That is an abandonment of your freedom in its worst form. Usually that is followed by a life of blaming. Yet the only person to blame is the one who gave up the power of choice.
Consider your current position. Not doing so well? Who’s to blame….? Careful now!
Well, claim your freedom and determine your own direction and quality of life. This freedom should be the first thing we teach our children and the last thing to surrender.
