The power of smart decisions

Smart choices always get you ahead in life no matter what the circumstances are.

Only a number of people in life are smart, Most f us humans never really bother thinking about the future, past or even present. We never really plan for Life this we always find ourselves struggling to to really live life to he fullest.

Wisdom is rare among humans, people who always do things for the now rarely have a future. See here’s the thing, in life there’s always a shot-run and a long-run, if you fail to plan for the future and make poor decisions and choices that may benefit you in the short run which is the now then know that in the long-run which is the future those bad little choices or decisions definetly become thorns that prick life out of you.

But here’s the great part smart choices may mean a Little hardwork and toil in the present, a little less fun and more seriousness in the now but the best thing about this is that smart choices may you wiser, they make you smarter and they definitely guarantee a better tomorrow.

In everything you do always remember that tommorow is the only thing that’s forever. If pleasure today means the opposite tomorrow then choose what’s best for you and what will last you. Friends are never permanent,parties are not permanent but as long as you are living you are. Here’s an example, Smoking may be fun today but lung cancer isn’t won’t be tomorrow #choose wiser
