In this life, you can easily wreck yourself through the decisions you make. The choices you take in life determine if you will enjoy your life or not. Life is not as hard as we make it to be. People complicate a life that could have been smooth and sweet through poor decision making. Everything that happens to people started in their minds. They started entertaining some thoughts then soon after, they decided to act on those thoughts. The actions that they took determined how their lives turned out to be. If you decide to start drinking alcohol, at first it will be fun but eventually you will become addicted and it will make you a poor manager of your time and resources. It will keep you away from your true friends. Alcohol will make sure that you never get into any real relationship. If you decide to steal, at first it will be fun then eventually you will either face mob Justice or the law. Stop doing what married people do if you’re not yet married. Wait for your time. You’re depriving your future life partner of their right when you give what’s supposed to be preserved for them to some random people who will never be of any significance in your life. Worse than that, if you develop careless sexual behavior you might end up having to take ARVs for the rest of your life.
A good friend of mine once told me that a person can be their own worst enemy or their own best friend. This means that our thinking can either prevent us from achieving what we want or it can open ways for us to achieve what we want. The choices and decisions we make in life are largely or entirely influenced by our thoughts. Our decisions either limit us or help us go beyond limits. A negative attitude is caused by negative thinking while a positive attitude is caused by positive thinking. We attract what we store in our minds. How we see every situation depends on how we perceive things in our minds. Go through your mind now. Do you think well about yourself? Do you consider yourself worthy of good things? Have you conceded in your mind that life ends up with death so there’s no need to be righteous? Have you convinced yourself that everybody else is sinning so you can sin too? The thoughts you entertain in your mind soon become you. Your mind is like a garden. Negative thoughts are weed. Positive thoughts are what grows to bear good fruits. Uproot the weed and destroy it completely. Shut down negative thinking. If you do so, soon you will feel positive vibes. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.
