Nobody ever did, or ever will escape the consequences of his choices.
September 9th- think before you act
While we are free to choose our actions - we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions.
Steven lR. Covey
Actions have consequences. It is something I think we all learn at some point in our lives. If you’re obedient , then you won’t get a time out. if you hit your brother, then he’ll hit you back, if you don’t eat dinner, then you don’t get dessert. Things like that happen to to most as children and teach the lessons of our choices.. They don’t just affect us, but but others. too.
As adults our choices are a lot bigger and the consequences are bigger too. If you don’t go to work, you won’t get paid, If I choose to spend money on movies, then I won’t be able to pay rent, if I don’t save the money for gas, then I won’t be able to drive anywhere.
It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men
Everything we do affects other people, whether that is large or small. Actions have consequences that we never see coming. I think more people should have this reminder. If you can, think again before you do something. A single choice has a potential effect to someone else, It’s called the Ripple effect and is a consequence of everything you do. When we own our own situation and take responsibility for the choices that led to it, then is when we can create a different future.
You can do anything in this world if you are prepared to take the consequences.
W. Sommerset Maugham
