Your decisions determines your destiny

Former President Ronald Regan enjoyed telling the following story about himself. He claimed it was how he learned in life, to make firm and resolute decisions.

According to the story, a kind aunt once tok him to a cobbler to have a pair of shoes custom-made for him. The shoe maker asked,"Do you want a sq uare toe or a round one?" The young Reagan hemmed and hawed, so the cobbler said, "Come back in a day or two and tell me what you want."

A few days later the cobbler saw Regan on the street and asked what he had decided about the shoes. "I haven’t made up my mind," Regan answered. "Very well," the cobbler said, and then he announced to his customer, "Your shoes will be ready tommorow,". When Regan got the shoes, one had a round toe and the other a square toe!

Regan concluded, "Looking at those shoes every day taugt me a lesson. If you don’t make your own decisions, somebody will make them for you."

If you don’t decide what is important in your life, someoneelse will decide for you. A wise person makes his decision, an ignorant one follows public opinion. If you think making decision is too much of a work, don’t worry, some else will make it for you with or without your permission.

Your destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. Never you think of staying at the middle of the road that could be dangerous because there is possibility of being run over by traffic from both directions.

The story is told about a farmer who thought he had the perfect worker because the man went at every task energetically and complteted it quickly. Then he gave the hired hand a job sorting potatoes

"Just put the good one in a pile, the doubtful in another and throw out the rotten ones. An hour later, the farmer was amazed that nothing had done, and asked why. Well, said the hired worker, "it’s making those decisions that’s killing me".

Who would have thought that the determination and conviction of a quiet, unassuming man, a lawyer by trade and a pacfist by principle, would have the power to topple a vast empire? Yet Mahatma Gandhi’s indomitable decision to rid India of British rule w as a virtual powder keg that set in motion a chain of events that would forever change the balance of world power.

Decisions are what transforms ideas into reality. The key to that dream future are the things you decide to do today. What you commit yourself to today will change you from what you are into what you want to become.

Take a decision today and make it happen!
