The answer is yes. People always have a choice. For those who serve in the army, life and limb depends upon the will to execute whatever the commander orders. That does not leave much room for choices. However, the choice could always be a trip to military prison, which is something that some are willing to do after few unethical operations. The greatest lessons in life are born in these kinds of situations, and for those who have been there, the power to choose becomes too precious to hand over to anyone. Its power is underestimated leaving most to believe that they must operate in certain way in order to follow and fulfil what is expected or even because of some misguided sense of identity.
Some examples include the fact that people do not have to work. Works is a choice, just like doing the dishes. Choices determine where a person lives. Religious and cultural ideals are choices as well. Feelings of happiness or anger, belief in oneself and whether he can or cannot succeed are all fundamental life choices. Small changes in those choices can literally change a life. The decision to believe one can achieve anything he wants, the decision to work on the important task first, the decision purify the body and hold it free from poison, the decision not to have a Television and the decision to choose one’s friends. A change in one’s authentic choices will change his reality to a much better reality, created by his deepest desires. In order to do this, one must be self conscious and pay attention to each minute decision that is made. Every decision counts, and one must be consistent with his choices in order to create a new set of better habits. A more responsible set of habits develop a stronger character, which can attract people and opportunities. Lastly, willpower to say no whenever is needed means true Freedom. One must let go of the desire to please anyone who comes calling. The power of choice, once accepted, means freedom from any rules, restrains, and boundaries. It is time to choose.
