“Until a person can say deeply and honestly, “I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday,” that person cannot say, I choose otherwise.” _____ Stephen R. Covey.
It intrigues me how some people seem to make all the right choices in life either because they had strong role models in their lives, or because they had a good upbringing and all those formative years were filled with positive input. It saddens me to see how people are segregated, pointed at, and marginalised because they haven’t achieved certain level of success or wealth. Unfortunately not every one has the opportunity to be exposed to the best possible life, not everyone leads a lineal life where everything seems to fall into place. I thank God for those brave and courageous spirits that despite having had the worse experiences in their lives, they manage non the less to become quite successful in their own right. It infuriates me when people deem you less than because at the moment you don’t fit their bill. The greatest people that have ever lived on this earth have been an inspiration and a role model because although they went through hardship, misery and trauma in their lives, they managed to surpass all of the challenges and become people of great respect.
Even though you may have made wrong choices in your life for whatever reason, it is never too late to make empowering new ones. Don’t let anyone! tell you can’t do something, stay away from those who seek to limit you because of your gender, race, age, background or any other form of discrimination. You must be your own best friend and galvanize yourself to become exactly the person you want to be. Today you can start to make new positive choices that are independent from whatever anyone thinks or perceives about yourself.
I encourage you to believe in yourself and to make the choices that resonate with your life’s purpose on this earth
