Each and every decision you make gives way to action. Your decisions set certain causes in motion.
Ever feel like you’re on the wrong track with you life? Ever wonder how you ended up somewhere you never planned on being? I know I have. How does that happen? How do we get so far off of our life plans?
It’s like this…
If you take a moment and think about it, many times, more often than not, it traces back to some decision we made. Maybe a not-so-informed choice. Maybe we chose to believe in the wrong person. Maybe we simply made a bad decision.
The good news is that someone operates the switches on the tracks of life. I happen to believe that Christ plays a large role in our direction but that He gives us free will to make our own decisions knowing that He will continue to direct our path.
You have a choice about how your life will turn out. No one is going to do it for you.
If you decide to send that email to your boss addressing an issue you have at work, he will now be aware and will address the issue causing more decisions to made within the course you have directed. It’s like this with most decisions.
Your decisions will most definitely determine where you are headed. You may decide to quit your job. Or move to California. Or keep deciding to stay in a rather messed up relationship. Or if you will attend a certain event or not. Or maybe as simple as where to have lunch.
There are causes and a certain level of activity or action which will come into effect as a direct result of how you made these decisions.
If you feel off track or like you’re not where you want to be with your life, the good news is that your can set the dial. You can realize that your decisions will take you where you want to go.
I realize that some people may not like this. They may not like it because it requires a self-examination that will most likely sting a bit. And one which will then require action based on the results of the examination.
If you were to go to the doctor and they told you you’re cholesterol was through the roof, would you go out and to all-you-can-eat wings and pound a couple of buckets of your favorite beer? I hope not. You would probably examine your diet and daily habits and recalibrate how you live and eat.
Same goes for your decisions.
It requires an certain level of self-determination. And it takes self-control. But trust me, no one is standing in your city center and freely handing out the life you always wanted. It requires a lot of effort. Hustle. Its takes blood, sweat and tears. It requires a staunch determination.
Making better decisions today which will put you on a better track for tomorrow. Decisions that will set better causes in motion.
