10 Wise Choices in life

 Choices in life

Life is the sum of all your choices.  ~Albert Camus

Life is a series of choices. Making choices is to move forward in life. When you make the wrong choice you will learn a valuable lesson. When you choose correctly you will make progress in life. When you don’t make choices, you will miss a lot of fun and excitement in life. Here are the ten choices which I believe will make your life worth living:

1.      Choose happiness: Happiness is a wise choice from within. However, there are other choices in life that you have made and contribute to your happiness. You can find most of them in this article.   

What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life. ~ Leo Buscaglia

2.      Choose gratefulness: To be thankful is to live life abundantly. Just think of your existence in this world, your talents, your job, your family - you are blessed.  

3.      Choose decisiveness: You are more likely to regret things that you have not done than having done the wrong things in life. Making the wrong choices and doing the wrong things is part and parcel of living. Taking action is the natural pathway to move ahead in life. Just do it.  

4.      Choose patience: Perseverance is the key to success. It is what you will get when you work on it every day with great effort for a long time and also meet and overcome challenges in life.  I have not heard of overnight success, not even Jeremy Lin.

5.  Choose peacefulness: Peace of mind and serenity is what you get when you choose goodness. Think good, be good, do good and cause no harm to others.

6.      Choose contentment: It is a very simple fact of life; if you are not contented with what you have in life you will never be contented with what you are going to get.  You can choose to have more things in life but the most important thing is to be happy and appreciative of what you have got.

7.  Choose confidence: Life can be gloom and doom but you can choose optimism and hopefulness. Confidence is the way to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Be cool, calm and collected to face obstacles in life. Be resilient and rise from every fall.

8.    Choose health: To be able to live life fully is to choose fitness and energy. Health is the greatest wealth in life. There is life and happiness when there is health in you. 

9.      Choose preparedness: There will be no luck or opportunities if you are not ready. Jeremy Lin has prepared for a long time to grab his lucky break in life. So, be prepared for a chance in a lifetime.

10.  Choose simplicity: When you are efficient and effective, simplicity is what you get. Living a life without complication reduces tension and stress. Simplicity is the key to live in a complicated world productively. 

What are the other wise choices you have made in life?

When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that is in itself a choice.  ~William James
