Choose your battles

A quote I saw on someone’s phone reads, ‘you don’t have to show up to every argument you are invited to.’  Pretty wise, isn’t it? Much like what a sensei would say to his apprentice (Lol). 

Studying this quote revealed something quite phenomenal to me: too many of us are not as proactive as we ought to be. We allow battles screen us like an interviewer does for a job and then finally choose us. Why can’t we be the ones who stare life in the face and say to one of its challenges, “it is your turn, I am taking you down?”

Like in the quote above, sometimes we are on our own, minding our business when suddenly some issue shows up and challenges us to a fight. At those times, we are often taken by surprise and so unsure of what to do. And because we are inadequately prepared, we more often than not, fail. 

You should choose your battles and not the other way around. How? Be more in-charge of your life and circumstances. Decide for yourself what you want. Be more assertive in life. When you set goals for yourself and go ahead to pursue them do you think any of life’s challenges will give you a sucker punch? No, because you were the one who chose that path and so you must have mapped out a chart and prepared for the likely challenges you will face, unique to the path you have chosen.

Of course, that does not mean that certain things you didn’t exactly expect won’t hit you. Yet, they will be fewer than if you were laid back and because you are standing on your feet, when they come it will be easier to deflect them than if you were sitting down, idling your life away.

Don’t let life happen to you. When you pass through, let life know something remarkable hit it.
