We make life choices everyday, and sometimes you may wonder if your life would have been different if you had made a different decision… but sometimes things were just meant to be…
Life is full of choices.
The reality of life is there are some things in life that you can control and others that you can’t. We sometimes make diminishing, destructive, and/or self-sabotaging life choices because we worry about the things and variables that we couldn’t control. We didn’t focus, or lost focus, on controlling the things that we could.
What do you believe?
Is everything in our lives laid out for us – destiny – or do we have some control of our own life choices?
I often wonder, what if I had made a different decision…
…Would my life be the same? Would I be in a different place – living a totally different life?
Or maybe it was meant to be. No matter what decision I had made, would I still be at this same stage and point in my life.
What Is Destiny And What Are Life Choices?
If you believe in life choices, you view your life as a product of the decisions you make. If you believe in destiny, you feel that that your life is defined by some greater power.
Even if we are each part of some great “master plan”, our distinct journey has more personal meaning when we choose it for ourselves.
What do you believe?
the events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future.“she was unable to control her own destiny”
the hidden power believed to control what will happen in the future; fate.“he believes in destiny”
Life choice [countable]
an important decision which you make about your life, for example where you choose to live, what kind of job you do, whether you get married, or have children etc.
How You Can Change Your Destiny By Making Life Choices
Ken Linder is an author, life coach and public speaker. He is the founder of ‘Life- Choice Psychology’, and author of ‘Your Killer Emotions’.
One of the Core Concepts of Life-Choice Psychology is: You have the ability to control your reasoning and evaluative processes, your choices, and your actions—as long as you master the potentially toxic emotions, urges, and impulses that can cloud or totally dismantle your reasoning processes and best judgment at life choice-making time
Below is a snippet of what ‘Life-Choice Psychology’ is:
Life-Choice Psychology is a conscious, calculated, and constructive means of thinking, reasoning, valuing, and living. It is a highly strategic, analytic methodology with the explicit goals of enabling and empowering you to fully and positively self-actualize, and thereby reach your fullest and greatest potential.
Life-Choice Psychology is optimistic and positive; witness the content of the words that comprise its title:
Life and good physical, mental, and emotional health are precious gifts to be made the very most of and cherished. They are blessings that aren’t guaranteed for any length of time to anyone. As a result, they are to be appreciated, preserved, and enhanced through the choices that we make. Through making constructive life choices, you make the very most of your genetic endowment; your environment; and your intellectual, psychological, emotional, and physical gifts and well-being…and therefore your life! All beautiful things!
Choice: By its very nature, our ability to have and make small and large choices is in every sense of the words freeing and empowering—as you truly are able, in many instances, to determine your destiny. Unlike animals who do not have the capability to think about, reason through, and evaluate data and options, you have the freedom and the ability to chart the course of your life through the truly great choices that you have the opportunity to make throughout each day. These life-changing and life-enhancing choices are your gifts and blessings, and you can joyfully seize them! Carpe Diem!

Marriage is not an easy thing. But some couples just work hand in glove, like the inspiring Ron and Eileen Everest. Both 91 years old, the British couple were born in the same maternity unit in Kent and their love has gone platinum, the pair having recently celebrated their 70th anniversary. Their fathers were good friends and Ron and Eileen saw each other often growing up. In the picture on the left, they’re posing as a bride and groom at a town carnival at age four. They got married for real at age 21. “We have been in love from the age of zero,” said Mr Everest.

“We know what we are, but know not what we may be.”
“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”
