The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be

Things to Think About

By Pepper de Callier

"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be." Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is no more powerful driving-force in life than the acceptance of personal responsibility and that is what this wonderful quote is all about.  Our destiny, in Emerson’s words, is nothing more than the manifestation of the choices we make in life. The things we choose to do, the people we choose to associate with, the thoughts we choose to have—these things, not circumstances, are what define us. Are you happy with where your choices have brought you in life, or is it time to review the direction of a powerful force only you can direct?

Till next time…
