"Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you"
- Richard Bach
About this Quote
This quote by Richard Bach is a tip that we are in control of our own lives. We are the ones who draw people and occasions into our lives, and it is up to us to decide how we will respond to them. We can pick to gain from our experiences, or we can choose to overlook them. We can pick to do something about it and make changes, or we can pick to remain in the exact same location. Eventually, it is our choice how we will use the people and occasions that enter into our lives. We can use them to grow and progress people, or we can utilize them to stay stuck in the exact same location. The option is ours.
"There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures"
