YOU and CHOICE
The choice is a central part of life. How to make a good Choice for
The right, power, or opportunity to choose.
The choice is about YOU and choice is personal and choice effects
others deeply. And the choice YOU make today will affect all the
other choices in the years to come as YOU age. Even a small
choice has ripples. It may not be noticeable but I still effect more
than just today.
Learn to make the correct choice for YOU and to learn from the
YOUR life is guided and defined by the choices YOU make
Know and appreciate those good choices are harder to make than
Accomplishment of an important goal always starts with an
Many of YOUR choices are under the control or influence of
others. This should not be but is a normal thing.
Be a good thinker – so that your can make good choices.
Good choices are generated in our minds
Decisions that you make today started with a choice back when.
Choose the good things – integrity, peace, love, forgiveness and
keep choosing the POSITIVE things in life so that YOU will get
where you want to go and
What Does Life Expect from YOU?
I have had, over my lifetime, quite a few in my family that has
had terrible addictions. Whether they have been from alcohol or
drugs – both have been very bad upon their life.
From my observation and I believe many phycologists will agree
that when a person with an addiction crosses the line to being
called an addict – the person’s development stops at that time
and until the can get over that addiction the maturing and
development will always be there and in their life. That person’s
choices will not be positive or in their best interest or their family
or friends best interest. The choice for an addict is always about
feeding the addiction – that is their #1 priority. Everything else
takes second in their life.
For those of us who are not addicts – choice has an obvious and
immediate moral significance.
Decision-making is something all of us need to learn to do. And
to master decision-making skills and making good decisions
depends on several factors:
Person’s developmental stage/age
Idea of right a wrong
What the decision-making process entail.
Starting young to learn to make choices is not too young. I tried
to give my children challenges so they could make a choice and
learn how to make the correct with our family values.
Never give a child more than 2 choices – let them make the
decision and how to choose for them.
As we age we know how to choose and make better choice’s
because we know SELF better and what values we are living by.
