Tony Robbins in his book “Re-awaken the Giant within” is saying that it is our decisions, not our conditions of our lives that determine our destiny. You and I both know that there are people who were born with advantages: genetically, a wealthy family, landed a good relationship, great opportunities.
Then there are people who, in the face of adversity become examples of the unlimited power of the human spirit
Nick Vujicic, Maya Angelou, our own Siyabulela Xuza,
When we have a flu, a bit tired, our electricity goes out, car does not start – some of us, sometimes become quite miserable If we decide to, you and I can make our lives one of these inspiring examples. How? Simply by making right decisions today about how we’re going to live in this decade and beyond.
That power lies within ALL OF US!
It’s our decisions, not the conditions of our lives that determine our destiny
Three decisions that you make every moment of your life control your destiny. These three decisions determine what: you’ll notice, how you’ll feel, what you’ll do,
And ultimately what you will contribute and who you become. If you don’t control these three decisions, you simply aren’t in control of your life. When you do control these decisions you begin to sculpt your experience.
The three decisions that control your destiny are:
- Your decisions about what to focus on
- Your decisions about what things mean to you.
- Your decisions about what to do to create the results you desire.
You see, it’s not what’s happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it’s your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you’re going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny
It is true that at some point, Life certainly will present us with tasks that seem a bit overwhelming: we lose a loved one, we do get divorced, we lose our job, we make a financial investment that doesn’t work out the way we hoped it would, we receive impossible sales targets etc. Sometimes we catch ourselves thinking:
“I just can’t do this”
The thing is…you can.
It’s our decisions, not the conditions of our lives that determine our destiny.
In the face of adversity, become an example of the unlimited power of the human spirit.
