It’s a fact of life, wherever you are in life at this very moment is a consequence of your actions. Every moment presents a crossroads; a ‘yes’ takes you to a different path from ‘no’ or ‘wait’.
Think of all the opportunities that came to you and you said yes, immediately, a rabbit hole took you to a new sphere, where only those which gave a similar response are. This goes on and on, continuously weeding out people based on their decisions.
We can never be in the same boat, no two people can. Because depending on our fears, our self belief, our faith, our answers take us on a different path, each shorter or longer, depending on our actions.
Yes? No? Wait? You choose your path. You decide whether you will get to where you want to be, or not.
