You Don’t Control The Outcomes Of Your Life, Principles Do. | Inc.com

Brilliant and to the point. Also, almost irrefutably true.

Your Entire Life Is Preparation

It is for this reason that everything you do matters. Principles, like gravity, are in control. You can’t escape them. The people you spend your time with. The way you save, or spend, your money. The things you put in your body. The information you put in your head.

Garbage in, garbage out. Quality in, quality out. You control your behavior, principles control the outcomes. Although this may be terrifying to some, I find this reality to be completely liberating. The challenge: learn and apply correct principles.

Although you don’t control the outcomes, you can become adept at predicting the outcomes of your behavior. In this way, you are the designer of your destiny. You choose the effect governing principles will have on you. Do what is right, let the consequence follow.
