An observation worth noting … and pondering:
Destiny is not a matter of chance,
it is a matter of choice;
It is not a thing to be waited for,
it is a thing to be achieved
Choice is a fundamental component of anyone’s success, in any endeavor. If the achievement is not the product of a decision to pursue a particular ambition, and the needed level of commitment, there is no success.
Too many of us are guilty looking for signs from “out there” to tell us what our purpose—our destiny—should be. We hope for a lucky break that might reveal our own unique truth, when instead that truth and destiny lie within.
The key is to first know that, and then pay attention to the experiences and events which stir more than a passing interest. It’s not usually crystal-clear to everyone in the first moments when they give thought to purpose and meaning in their lives. It’s the subtle hints Life offers as we begin our quest to make a mark—grand or otherwise.
If we’re aware that we’re seeking something specific from within to lead the way, it will in time become inevitable. Life Will Answer.
