“Life is not discovery of fate; it is continuous creation of future, through choices of thoughts, feelings, and actions in the present.”
Sometimes I look at people who appear more successful in life than me. They might have an office instead of a lowly cubicle, they might make a lot more money, and they probably live in a better neighborhood and drive a nicer car. I know I am as smart or smarter than some of these people and probably more talented. However, they usually have sometimes I don’t have. What they have and what I generally lack is drive and ambition. This doesn’t mean I am lazy or a loser. We all make choices of thought, feeling, and action. My thoughts, feelings, and actions are based on what I want and what I think are important. A big office, a huge paycheck, a lifetime mortgage, and a fancy car are not my top priorities. For the most part I make decisions based on what I think is right for me and what makes me happy. I have a very nice life and I have always gotten what I need and most of what I want. What I lack in drive and ambition, I make up with contentment. Quite simply, there is much in life more important to me than power, prestige, or possessions. However, I am happy for all the other people who have achieved a different kind of success.
