The Choice

In  our daily life whatever we do is our own choice consciously or unconsciously. Therefore whatever we get in our life is the result of our choice. We can’t blame others for the results we get in our day today life. What we are today is what we want to be. Therefore if we want to life a successful and happy life we should  choose the same  every day every moment.

I have read a case study few years back on net “”, which I am reproducing here for the Benefit of the readers. Hopefully you will enjoy the same.


The Way we start determines the end and it is  all in our choice.

The strongest principle of growth lies in our choice. We have the ultimate power of CHOICES and we cannot shuffle off our responsibility upon the shoulders of God or nature. We  must shoulder it ourselves. It is up to our Choice.

If you want happy endings, choose. “Right Start”.





Mr. X is the manager of a restaurant. He is always in a good mood. When                                                    Someone would ask him how he was doing, he would always reply. “If I  Were any Better, I would be twins!”

Many of the waiters at his restaurant quit their jobs when he

changed jobs, so they could follow him around from restaurant

To restaurant. Do you know Why?

Because Mr. X was a natural Motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Mr. X  was always there, telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Mr. X and asked him : “I don’t get it! No one can be a positive person all of the time. How  do you do it” Mr. X replied, “Each  Morning I wake up and say to myself, I have two choices today. I can Choose to be a good mood and Start WELL or I can  choose To be in a bad Mood. I always choose to be in a good mood.

Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be victim or I can choose to learn from it. I always choose to learn from it.

Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaints or I can point out the positive side of  life.

” I always choose the positive side of life.”  “But it’s not always that Easy.” I protested. “Yes it is.” Mr. X Said. “Life is all About Choices. When you cut away all the junk every Situation is a Choice. You choose how you react to situations. You Choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a Good mood or bad mood. It’s your choice how you live your life.”

After Few years….

I heard that Mr. X accidentally did something you are never supposed to be in the restaurant business. He left the back door of his Restaurant open  AND THEN???. In the morning, he was robbed by three armed men. And they wanted…..”?” Why Mr. X trying to open The safe box, his hand, shaking from nervousness, slipped off the Combination. The robbers panicked and shoot him.

Luckily, Mr. X was found quickly and rushed to the hospital. After 18 Hours of Surgery and weeks of Intensive Care. Mr. X Was released from the hospital with fragments of the bullets still in this body… I saw Mr. X about six months after the accident. When I asked him  How he was,  he replied, “If I were any better, I’d be twins. Want to See my scar?” I decline to see his wounds, but did ask him what had Gone through his mind as the robbery took place.

“The first thing that went through my mind was that I should have Locked the back door.” Mr. X replied. “Then, after they shoot me,

As I lay on the floor, I remembered that I had two Choices :

I Could Choose to live or could choose to die.

And I Choose to Live.”

“Weren’t you scared!!!” I asked?

Mr. X continued, “The paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they took me into Emergency Room and I saw the expression on the faces of the doctors and nurses. I Really scared.

In their eyes, I read “He’s a dead man.” I knew I needed to take Action.” “What did you do?” I asked. “Well, there was a big nurse Shouting questions at me.” said Mr. X.  “She asked if I was allergic to Anything.” ‘Yes,’ I replied. The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled,  ‘Bullets!’ Over their laughter, I told them.

I am choosing to live.

Please operate on me as       

if I am alive,

 not dead’.




“Mr. X lived thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his Amazing attitude.

I learned from him that Every day you have the choice either your Life or to hate it.”  The only thing that is truly yours – that no one can Control or take you – is your attitude, so if you can take care Of that, everything else in life becomes much easier.”

It is our attitude towards the situation, which we handle, that the Result we gain.

Therefore every morning, we have two Choices –

To be happy or sad..

To be Successful or failure,

Rest of your day depends on it………

In nut shell we all are bounded by our thoughts. Our thoughts makes our day and life. Like thoughts like life. Our thoughts attracts The situations. If we think of Goodness, happiness, cooperation, etc.,

Positives, all the positives will get attracted and we will get positive Only.

And if we think sad, anger, jealous, etc., we attract negatives,

So Choice is OURs………
