When people keep telling you that you can't do a thing, you kind of like to try it.

Because of consequences

You will always experience the consequences of your own thoughts and actions. Consider for a moment what a perfectly wonderful blessing that is. The things you think and the things you do serve to mold the world around you. What more could you possibly ask for?

It is at once an awesome responsibility and a magnificent opportunity. You can think, you can act, and by so doing you can shape your world. Because your thoughts and actions have consequences, you have a choice in the way your life proceeds. You have a choice in what your world becomes.

Even if your consequences seem to be a burden, that too can be a blessing. For it compels you to see the need for adjusting and improving your choices.

Because of the consequences that flow from your thoughts and actions, you can go where you want to go, be who you want to be, and live in a world fashioned by your choices. Choose wisely in each moment, and you’ll eagerly welcome each new consequence.
