While your character is formed by your circumstances, your choices can do much to shape those circumstances. What is enabling in the doctrine of free will is the conviction that you have the power over the formation of your own character.
Nature is at work around you – choices and destiny are her handiwork; she gives you love and hate, jealousy and reverence so that you can use the power to choose which impulses you will follow.
You can at any time decide to alter the course of your life – no one can take that away from you. You are the master of your joys and your sorrows. The greatest power you possess is the power to choose.
I want to choose the details of my life, and fortunately, I have come to appreciate how important it is to allow others freedom to choose their own paths. None of us wants to be robbed of our ability to choose for ourselves. After all, we cannot know what is best for anyone but ourselves. So why would I give unsolicited advice to others and expect them to follow it?
Success is getting what YOU want and happiness is wanting what you get. Life is not about how much you have, it’s about how much you enjoy what you have manifested into your life and how much you appreciate and are grateful for it.
Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give.
You are the master of your destiny and you are captain of your soul.
