In life, what you accomplish has a lot to do with the choices you make. No one is born a doctor, lawyer, thief, or a bum.
Some people use the excuse that if you grow up in an atmosphere that promotes negative family values, your lack of success and your bad behavior can be blamed on your childhood experiences.
When you make associations like: I drink because my father is an alcoholic. I use drugs because no one in my family understands me. I will never accomplish my dreams because my family is poor.
What you’re really saying is “I’m not responsible for the mess I make of my life.”
How many of you really believe that only people graced with great genetics, perfect social conditions and parentage behave with a conscience and lead good lives.
When you blame something or someone from the past for your bad experiences you become a victim.
It’s true not everyone is raised in an ideal family situation, but what you choose to do once you become an adult is up to you.
Life is not easy for some, it is a never-ending obstacle course.
But the attitude you choose to overcome your problems is in your control. How you accomplish your goals and solve your problems is determined by your choices.
Stop blaming others for your problems, and live life with a conquering spirit. By changing your attitude and making the right choices, you can change the outcome of your future.
