“You are responsible for your lives; Whatever decision you make in this room determines whether you live or die”.
Extracted from a movie
This quote touched me last night while watching a military movie based on a true-life story titled “13 hours: The secret soldiers of Benghazi”.
This movie is about an elite security team that went to battle to save some US consulate personnel who were trapped in Libya. I wouldn't go on to narrate the movie but if you are a lover of action movies, then this is for you.
I only extracted the quote as I got fascinated by it. Many of us, our decisions have brought us to this level we are, whether in a good or bad way. We won't hold anyone responsible for our misfortunes. So, you are the controller of your life and if anything should happen, you don't have the right to blame anyone for it.
I read a post on Hive yesterday and the author explained how a friend of his blamed his elder sister for the challenges he is going through. According to him, the friend said if his sister had chosen the decision in the past, he wouldn't be where he is today.
I love how the author replied to him. The truth is, no one is responsible for how we do or fare in life. Being siblings and from the same blood doesn't guarantee that your success will come from them. We all have our lives to live and two siblings can never be the same.
Your fate can never be depended on the choice someone makes because we all are fighting for our lives and you have got to take action to be better.
I wonder why some people are so relaxed because they see their family excelling and they think they would help them and they don't have to worry about becoming rich. We owe no one anything.
We all came into this world differently and surely, we won't leave at the same time, even if death takes two people at the same time and minute. Where you go is different from where he or she goes.
Don't rely too much on people but face your life by yourself. Though people will help us along the way, that doesn't make you blame anyone for your misfortune or solely rely on them. Just as the other person decides to better his life, so do you.
If you are working under someone, it doesn't give you the right to claim that your boss or employer should make you succeed because if you don't make decisions to progress even at your place of work, you will lose guard unexpectedly.
We all are fighting for our lives and it is until there is danger ahead of us, that we would realize everyone is trying to save their lives. As they say "run for your lives".
Every decision we have made in the past brought us to where we are today and whatsoever decision you make now, will determine your future. So, don't think someone else would decide how you live or where you go to. Keep reminding yourself that you owe no one and no one owes you. Life is made for every individual to run their race.
The beauty of life is that the sky is so big and spacious enough for everyone and the sun up in the sky is enough to dry all our clothes, we just have to do what fits us and what our abilities can carry us.
A father's wealth will never make his son rich because some plans are made to happen unexpectedly and before you know it, everything has disappeared right in your front. Don't rely on your parent's riches and don't expect too much from them. Life can shock everyone when we least expected it. No one knows tomorrow, it can't be predicted.
Your race is different from mine. What I am pursuing isn't the same as yours and so, the decisions we make relating to our career or path will be different. Don't blame me if you aren't doing well, take responsibility for every action you take. Take the blames yourself and work to improve where you made mistake.
Regret is the most painful repercussion that would happen to anyone and it could make you commit suicide if you don't define your path now. The worst is that it will make you see yourself as worthless and a fool but there is always another chance to make corrections.
We all are in this together. I am not exempted from everything I am saying here and I believe we all are trying to make the best for ourselves. So, coming here to encourage you doesn't make me exclude myself from learning too. I will never blame you if I make mistakes, and neither will you blame me.
Let's learn to take responsibility and accept the blames but that shouldn't stop us from standing up to make another decision at this time, we should carefully scrutinize our past errors and try to erase those mistakes, not forgetting to learn from them to give us the hint on how to make the right decision. If you must know, we all have a second chance and another chance until we give up.
Thanks for reading
