We are defined by our age, sex, race, weight, height, eye colour, education, wealth, relationships, workplace, job role, principles, way of talking, way of dressing, actions. But there is one thing that speaks louder than all of these. It’s our choices.
You can choose your education, your job, the way you dress, the way you talk, the way you act. You can choose everything, even the things you think you don’t have any control over. You can’t choose the age you have, but you can choose to act your age or not. You can’t choose your race, but you can choose to not let it matter or not.
Everything we do is a choice. You can choose to talk or listen, to do a great job or a poor one, to lead or follow, to change things or fight against change, to be motivated or to complain, to make commitments, to deliver, to matter, to be memorable, to be irreplaceable, to show up, to act or not.
All you have to do is make a choice and stick to it. Refusing to make a choice and just letting time pass is making a choice. It’s choosing not to pick anything specifically. Stop wasting time and make a choice today.
Everything is up to you.
