The Process of Shaping Your Life

Thursday, June 7th, 2007

Every day¬†provides lots of¬†opportunities for us to shape our lives. Many times we fail to maximize on these opportunities because we have a short-term perspective on our lives. When we approach our lives with a more long-term perspective, we begin to see that our daily events are forming the permanent ‘us’. Someone once said that ‘what you do daily determines who you become permanently’.

We shape our lives daily by the choices and decisions we make. Each choice we make is either a step up or down in the formation of our ultimate character. Show me a person’s choices and I will tell you the character of person that he or she is. Quality choices enable us to develop a solid character. Poor choices ruin our character. The process of shaping your life therefore begins with the character choices you make.
