What matters more - Our abilities or Our choices that we make !!

I was just watching Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets, and came across the dialogue which gave me a whole lot of food for thought.

At the end of the movie there is a scene where Professor Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) delivers a class dialogue to Harry Potter (Daniel Jacob Radcliffe) in which he mentions - "It is not abilities that show what we truly are, it is our choices".

Next moment it made me realise each one of us possesses - Abilities to create what we believe about ourselves and life but the choices we make, create all the difference. Thus it made me realize that to make a choice is all part of the plan of humanity to determine a person’s character and strengths. Choices play the most important role in making personal decisions about relationships, education, and life overall. If humanity was living without the option to make choices, our lives as people wouldn’t really be fair.

The ability to make choices while we exist in this world determines who we are or what we do with our life. It is a great gift given to us that we as humans are free to make our own choices in, from anything to everthing - whether it is relationships, education or basically everything that has to do with our being human.

Well this is a huge big topic to ponder on, this very moment my mind is mingling up with one more question - What do I feel about - A Choice in Life Choices ! ! ! and much more.....Well will speak about it in days to come.....

He was right with that.. We always chooses first either consciously or unconsciously...

Abilities comes much later...

Sometimes it looks like we are in THE MATRIX.

Hello Prachi,
Thank you for commenting on my blog. The photo you saw is a cherished family memory. I am awed by your achievements in both mathematics and language. I believe that our choices have an enormous impact on the paths our lives take. Abilities make some of those choices easier, but one foolish choice can negatively impact a lifetime. Great blog. - So many blogs. I chose this one first as I like the topic.
