You Are the Sum of Your Decisions
We can make a decision every single day, every single minute, every single second to change that sum.
I recently wrote about making our minds serve us versus allowing it to be the master of us. A big part of that conversation involved making a decision. That’s the topic for this conversation: We are truly the sum of all of the decisions that we have made. Think about that. How we are the sum of all the decisions that we’ve made up until this point.
Whether we decide to take action or not take action, we are making a decision. Whether we decide for years, and years, and years to get up and work out or not, is ultimately a decision. Either we decided to get up, take action, and make our minds serve us, and get that sweat on and start that day on a positive note or we didn’t, which is also a decision that we made. All of those small little decisions over time, for as long as you’ve been alive, up until here and now in your current reality is what your life looks like. Whether it’s where you want it to be or where you do not want it to be. For most of us, there’s always something more that we’re striving for, more that we want.
Wherever we are at, at this current point is the sum of all the decisions that we have made. Now for some of us, that might be disappointing or we might not be excited or happy about that. Some of us may truly be feeling blessed and feeling really good about our life. But wherever we are currently, and no matter the decisions that we have made up until this point, even though they are the sum of what we currently are, we continuously have another decision we can make. As long as we are alive and kicking on this wonderful planet that we call earth, we can make a decision every single day, every single minute, every single second to change that sum.
Now, unfortunately, that also means that we could regress in this constant process of growth and expansion, in trying to live this life of having it all, this legacy lifestyle. Where we want to leave a legacy that is unimaginable to us in our current reality right now. We have a decision each and every day to make a difference, to continue to grow, to expand to become bigger and better people or versions of ourselves in all of our areas. In our marriages, in our relationship with our kids, in our fitness, in our spirituality, in our business. No matter what has happened in the past, no matter what we might think might happen in the future, we can make a decision today right here and right now to go after the things that we want in our life.
So know that if you feel a little depressed when you start to think about the idea of you being the sum of all the decisions that you’ve made, just know that you can make the next decision to help to increase that sum. That there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel if you choose to get it and go after it.
