Many seek to dominate things from finance, success,athletics yet we easily forget the foremost thing to dominate in your life is choices. I say this because behind any success or failure in a person's life is the choice they made. Choices are powerful! One great financier of our times in detailing financial decisions a younger person should be careful in making, made an interesting observation which is very true. Amongst his suggestions, he said the company a person will start working for, starting salary, investment, partner to marry and others are paramount to how they turn out in the future. The essence of what he said was that choices make a person. (Copy and tweet)
At any given opportunity, everyone will be presented with choices for several things. Your ability to choose right impacts the rest of your days on earth. (Copy and tweet). When the wrong choice is made, understand that chaos, confusion, bitterness etc will be something you will battle with for the rest of your days. They say what makes a man are the books he reads and the company he keeps....and all these stem out of the choices he makes.
I was recently watching a reality TV show about a group of prominent people. I finally concluded that people behave based on the background from which they were raised. Thus the quality of the choices you'll make stems majorly from the background you were raised. Let's be honest, not everyone had the best upbringing in life. However, the liberty of life is this- at some point you can choose to be whom you’ve always wanted to be. (Copy and tweet).
Excuses pleases no one and makes people uncomfortable. (Copy and tweet). Your non- performance isn’t a leeway for not dominating the choices in your life. God is so good so much that whenever a person needs help, He readily provides it. Yes might not have had the best childhood, education, sometimes the best parents etc. but none truly matter now that you are a grown up. “When I was a child I thought like a child, but now that I have become man, I put away childish things (1 Corinthians 13:11). It’s about time you accept that your position in life has changed and you are totally in charge. I know a person's background has a lot of influence on their behaviour. The good news is that you can alter the influence for a future that is based on your choices. (Copy and tweet).
Joshua when he was the embers of his life, made a bold statement to the people regarding whom they will choose to serve. Its recorded that he was emphatic in telling the people to choose whom they will serve because he had made up his mind that every one of his family will serve the living God. Choices truly make a person! (Copy and tweet)
3 Ways To Dominate Your Choices:-
