I’m currently making my way back home from university. It’s around 8:00pm and I’m contemplating whether I should go to the gym or not. I’ve been working on losing weight for a long time now, and this goal I’ve decided is truly important to me. But…. I’m tired, a little frustrated with life, and if I’m honest I really don’t want to go. I figured to make the decision easier I’ll let a coin decide my fate. Leave it all to chance.
But as I took out my coin I came to an important realisation. If I had a choice, I would not let chance dictate my happiness, or the successes of my life goals. They are simply too important for me to leave it to fate. So why would I let chance decide today?
Yes I admit that one gym session does not seem all that significant, but it all adds up. Success I’ve reasoned does not stem from a few massive life decisions that you make one or two times in your lifetime. It is an accumulation of hundreds of thousands of tiny decisions that you make every single day.
So the short answer is yes. I will go to the gym. Because even though I don’t feel like it now, somewhere, someday, I’ll be glad I had enough foresight to see the bigger picture, and realise that in life, it all adds up…
