The outcome of your life is a direct result of your actions, the decisions you take and your inactions. This is why, it has has been said that you are directly responsible for anything that happens to you (positive and negative). The truth is; anyone that will ever tell you that you have a shared responsibility with another person for the issues of your life is not being sincere with you.
A particular occurrence may continue to happen to you until you initiate an action to alter it. In the same way, the things that are dormant or inactive around you can be quickened by your actions. Which means; what you want to happen may not happen until you have put actions to see them happen. Achieving your desired results does not stop at just wishing for it or thinking positively. Your actions must be in accord with your thoughts for it to work.
When your actions meet your thoughts at the right time, results will be birthed. If successes were to answer to mere wishes, then everyone will be successful. To achieve success in your life, your dominant actions must be tilted towards success. It is the actions and the decisions you take today that will determine the kind of result you will see in the future.
You may not be able to erase an action that you had already performed in your yesterday. However, you should be cautious about today's actions because they are the actions that hold the key to the results of tomorrow. It is important to note that every action you take (be it negative or positive) are with obvious results. If you intend to be met by a positive result, then your actions must be positive.
You may have full a choice of the decisions you take (and of course the actions you take) but when the results start coming, you may not have a choice over them. A friend of mine once made this statement a few years back:
What you will not want to reap as a fruit, do not make it a seed.
What this simply means is; how you will not want your life to turn out and what you will not want the result of your life to be, you should avoid taking actions that will lead you there. Before you take action, you need to carry your brain along with you and ask yourself what the result will be. This will help you to know if the action will be worth it or of you will need a change.
Your life is not dependent on the decisions other people take. You have a responsibility to take your own decision and welcome the results (or consequences) of the decision. No doubt, people may help you at some points but the major onus is laid on you to row your own boat.
