Wednesday Wisdom

Everybody says that life offers us many choices and even opportunities

But who guides us to take the proper decision regarding the choices available?

This is a million-dollar question.

Sages go even one step further and declare that your life is a result of the choices you make.

“Choices are abundant, it is the right decision which is the rare one!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

The blame game goes to…

“Blame is a beautiful thing, baby. Blame keeps this whole planet spinning. You can point your finger at the next man, you can shift the weight onto him, you don’t have to carry that shit around yourself. You can slide into bed and get a good night’s nap. Yeah, right.

Narrator-Augustus Hill ( played by Harold Perrineau) from Oz tv series

Irrespective of whether you make choice or not, you are ready to blame others for all the misfortune that is befalling you.

You blame the time, you say that it’s a wrong choice on the wrong occasion on a wrong day.

If you happened to be an emotional person, hell descends on you!

My friend, don’t get disheartened

As Mehmet Murat ildan says in the above quote…making the right decision is a rare one.

You are not alone.

Most of us make wrong choices by taking wrong decisions. It’s the part of life and the way of life.

It is the only way you can learn from mistakes.

Of course, mistakes can be sometimes costly!

Let us not blame others for everything. Remember you made the choice and be bold enough to accept the outcome of your choice.

Depend on your gut feeling.

And God provides you yet another opportunity to pick up one of the other choices available.

But you must have patience

Do you know what patience is?

“Patience is the art of hoping” Luc de Clapiers

Patience for one day, one month, one year or years together, ultimately you get what is best for you.

Are you aware of the three’ C’ of life? 

They are the triplets whom we should never forget.

  1. Choices
  2. Chances
  3. Changes

Let us try to analyse further.


My topic started with the ‘Choices’ we make.

Choices determine how far you can go.

“Choose your love. Love your choice.” Thomas S. Monson

My friend, all of us start the day by making certain decisions and irrespective of whether the decision you made is going to be good or bad is not in your hands, but some outcome happens. Now is the time for you to choose from this outcome.

Now you are in a better position to make the choice that can take you near to your goals.

This is the choice I am talking about all the time.

“There comes a time in your life when you have to choose to turn the page, write another book or simply close it” Shannon L. Alder


Here one has to use wisely the choice selected.

My friend, the greatest risk you should avoid all the time is the risk of doing nothing.

And here is the point. Don’t depend on others to guide your destiny.

When life is generous enough to offer you choices, don’t hesitate to take a chance.

“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make” Unknown


My friend, change is the way of life, all of us know this truth.

Never resist change once you decided about your choice and have taken a chance (irrespective of the outcome).

Be ready to welcome the change.

Remember Wu-Wei. Just flow with your life that happens once you have decided the ‘choice’ and the ‘chance’ you would love to take.

“Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes” Hugh Prather


“The 3 C’s of Life: Choices, Chances, Changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.” Zig Zigla

  1. I’m in that part of my life now where I’m looking back at the choices I made in the past and where those choices took me. Some of them were good while some of them weren’t. I’m also observing the same for those who are close to me and wondering about What If……
