The choices we make........
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
Today during a send off function arranged for one of our outgoing colleague our chairman was talking to us, i was deeply touched by his words and wished to write more about the thought he had shared with us. He was talking about the choices we make in our life, today we seem to be living in an environment were we constantly blame others for the lack of happiness in our lives due to wrong choices that they choose for us. Be it a career, choosing a partner, or anything small in our life we tend to make choices for the sake of others, trying to make them happy. But when he asked this question , 'will you be happy by that wrong choice', 'would you not regret for this wrong choice made' we all were stuck for a moment. I just feel there is a real good point in what he said, whatever choices that we make in our lives, we are solely responsible for it, we are the ones who are going to enjoy the fruits of that choice so its our responsibility to make the choices which is good for 'US' not for our parents or for our company or for our friends, because ultimately at the end of the day you have to stand alone facing the reality of life , you are all alone in the race of your life, the one who have to complete your race, nobody will ever come and finish it for you.This simple realization will help you make better choices in your life, choices that will never make you regret later on in your life.With one of my favorite quotes i am putting a full stop to this post.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
