You have the freedom to make your own choices. Knowing that these choices create your entire life is powerful in itself. As humans we choose how to react to what the universe gives us. Let me state that again "We CHOOSE how to react to what the universe GIVES us." These circumstances and situations are always a gift. No matter what it may be. You have the ability to choose your reaction.
The mind interprets what is good and what is bad. Through these interpretations your able to generate effect to the cause. You cannot control outside sources and sometimes that includes what happens to you. But you are gifted with the power of authority over your own response. This makes you entirely RESPONDsible over the outcome of your life.
“You’re life is the sum result of all the choices you make, consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes with being in charge of yourself.” -R.B.
