Quote of  the day

“Your life doesn’t just “happen.” Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you. The choices, after all, are yours. You choose happiness. You choose sadness. You choose decisiveness. You choose ambivalence. You choose success. You choose failure. You choose courage. You choose fear. Just remember that every moment, every situation, provides a new choice. And in doing so, it gives you a perfect opportunity to do things differently to produce more positive results.” (Stephen Covey, the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People)

If I may comment on Covey’s quote, I would say that, each one of us is in charge of his/her own life. We can decide to write our own destiny or we can let others write it for us.  As Covey says in another interesting quote : ” In our personal lives, if we do not develop our own self-awareness and become responsible, we empower other people and circumstances to shape much of our lives by default. We reactively live the scripts handed to us by family, associates, other people’s agendas, the pressures of circumstance – scripts from our earlier years, from our training, our conditioning.”
