You Can Be Whatever You Please

What drives us to succeed? Is it the money, fame, or is it something deeper than this? And who deems us a success? Is it our friends, family or is it the intimate world we have created for ourselves? Hm. The answers to these questions can often be hard to find yet they are usually staring us right in the face.

It’s your choice

If it was your choice what would you do in life? Who would you be? What path would you take? Epictetus once said, First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do. In my opinion he was right! You can do whatever you want. Become whoever you please.

Its all about the choices that you make in life. Afterall success lies within you, just reach out and bring it out.

If I could be what I wanted to be... I still am not 100% sure what that'll be? The measure of my success will be how comfortable I am financially and how happy I am emtionally and how drained I am physically.

I want to be very comfortable, satisfied and not physically drained.

so many forks in the road it is not so simple or rather it is choice upon choice upon choice and in our world now almost seems like too many. I liked this thank you

Buki: yes, I agree with your definition of success just that I'll add with how I am satisfied and contented with my achievements too.

Margie: Thanks dear, I'm glad your blog is behaving again. Love ya too!

Keshi: true 100% of the choices might not be ours but majority is, we can always shape our lives the way we want, true, we have the power to do that!

Belle: yes oo!

Pecos blue: first off, thanks for coming by. life is just full of choices and we can't live without making them. thats our life.

I am the living proof of this.
But without God our choices would be in vain.

Our destinies are not in the stars
But in our own hands.

God bless.
