What You Choose Is What You Get

April 24, 2013

In previous posts/articles on this site it has been repeated that all that comes our way, is what is needed for our growth.  It’s also been said that it is important to develop the attitude of believing and accepting that.

What is sent our way is not to be confused with the results that come from the choices we make and as a result what comes our way.  Sometimes the choices we make are seemingly expedient, but are mistakenly so.  Usually, those expedient choices are the ones that feed our wants rather than our needs.  In considering which choice to make, ask yourself what you are feeding.  We are responsible for those choices.  We are responsible to ourselves for how they effect our growth and we are responsible for how those choices effect others.

If the choices you make are not the ones that lead to the intended improvement, then life/your coach will continue to send you other challenges/drills meant to improve that deficiency.  It’s as though you took the wrong exit on your trip, your personal GPS will re-direct you if you pay attention.  In other words, you get second chances.  How quickly you get to your destination is up to you.  It depends on whether you choose to be a slow or fast learner by paying careful attention to the lessons, past and present.  That which comes your way and what you do with it determines how quickly you get to where you need or are meant to be going.

Today, you are the sum of all your choices so far.  You will become the sum of your choices, starting right now.

“In life there are two paths, the shorter longer way or the longer shorter way.” – Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi

” We are not creatures of circumstance; we are creators of circumstance.” — Benjamin Disraeli

“It’s choice, not chance that matters.” – Jean Nidetch

“Life is a sum of all your choices.” – Albert Camus

Who and what you are meant to be, meant to bring to the rest of us is embedded in your beginning and awaits you at the top of your mountain.

 “The entire fruit is already present in the seed.” – Tertullian

    I really liked this quote: “That which comes your way and what you do with it determines how quickly you get to where you need or are meant to be going. Today, you are the sum of all your choices so far. You will become the sum of your choices, starting right now.”

    So much so that I decided to share it on my business page. It is very well put.

      Allessandra,
      Thank you. That is quite a compliment coming from someone with your accomplishments and on the way to so much more.
      Once you have found that which you are needed for you will have all that you need.

    Our very fortunate gift of life here always puts us in the perfect place at the perfect time. Let go of demands and expectations. You are right. Opportunities for growth and opportunities for spiritual harmony abound – not always what we want or wish for, but, ultimately always for our benefit. Trust that.
