Destiny is no 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.~ William Jennings Brian
Good morning! I had an interesting conversation about accomplishment with an old friend yesterday. He was asking how I had managed to get where I am today, despite many obstacles, hindrances and setbacks that might detour “most” people.
I had never really thought about my life in those terms so my answer was short and basic. “What’s the alternative?” I know now, and I’ve always known, that I would never be happy if I let circumstance win. I have dreams, ambitions and goals that are more important than the obstacles that come my way. My devotion to my dreams is unwavering.
Destiny is indeed a choice. If you choose not to create your destiny–that is the choice to “default” and let the world create it for you. Take today’s quote to heart and don’t wait for the world to “roll your way.” Instead, take steps to make the life you want happen.
Each day I take a step toward the destiny I desire.
