Did you ever hear the phrase, “You control your own destiny”? In so many ways, it’s true. Even the smallest decisions we make, if they are good ones, will have a positive snowball effect on our lives. Here’s an example. When I was in college, I was completely focused on my wrestling and my education, and I had a roommate who felt the same way. But I started to notice that I would be studying or training at the gym each night, and my roommate would be going to a party. By the end of the year, I had excellent grades and also had an incredible freshman year on my wrestling team. My roommate? He failed out.
Every decision we make on a daily basis will reflect on who we become. Do you want success, or do you just want to be lazy and waste your life on parties and video games? Is that really your priority?
If you’re in a rut at this moment, there is always a way out. Start with your physical health first. Take care of your body, go to the gym, and eat the right foods. This will snowball into making proper choices with the right mindset. Remember, a healthy body creates a healthy mind. Once you start making the right choices from a mental standpoint, your successes will start to snowball and move you toward your goal. Your priorities will change and you will start to see your life turn around. The things you used to think were fun, like partying or hanging out with the wrong people, will not look like fun anymore. You will see your life manifest into what you always wanted to become.
The good news is it’s never too late to change for the better. So start now, and forget about the bad decisions you may have made. Your life is worth a lot more than you think, and each and every one of us is valuable to this world. So become a positive person in society by making better choices. It will snowball into what you have always wanted to become. It’s damn true.
