“It’s not the circumstances of life that shape your destiny, but the choices you make under these circumstances” – Batman: War on Crime
Choose between alternatives and feel responsible
- Have a clear understanding of the present situation, i.e., the actual circumstances that asks you for some kind of change – what do you see, what you don’t want to see, what you feel, what you say that you don´t feel, etc.; deepest awareness promotes easier change;
- Have a set of alternatives to analyze, choose one of them and make a trade-off of all the other ones (it’s so difficult to climb a mountain with unnecessary gear inside the backpack);
- Choose always the best for you, not the easier path.

Now make things happen as you decide
“Even when everything seems to collapse, it is up to me to decide between laughing or crying, going or staying, giving up or fighting; because I discovered, in the uncertain path of life, that the most important thing is to decide” – Cora Coralina
