The Paradox of Freedom
Posted August 1, 2017 by Rusty
As Americans, we get to experience something that few others enjoy - the freedom of choice. We get the to choose our employer, our spouse, and even how to spend our resources.
Freedom of choice, as great as it is though, doesn't give us the freedom from consequences. Consequences can be penalties or rewards, but your choices are what determine the results.
If I choose to focus on my health by working out and eating right, I will reap the consequences of strength and endurance. If I choose to work 70 hours a week, I will reap the positive consequences of career and financial growth, but I may also reap the negative consequence of the toll on my marriage.
When it comes right down to it, our future is determined by the sum of our choices we make today. With that in mind, what choices will you make today so that you can enjoy the consequences in the future?
