From Wikipedia,

“Choice consists of the mental process of judging the merits of multiple options and selecting one of them.”

In life, we get many options and the choice we make tells who we are. Many people think that it is very easy to make a choice depending on the options. What they don’t realise is they don’t know what the options are.

For many life is full of scarcities, for me life is full of abundance. God has given everyone enough opportunity to lead a healthy and happy life. But we just don’t realise it.

We live life mindlessly. Every day, we lose another 1,440 minutes that will never return. Farewell, minutes! Goodbye, opportunities.We live life without making the choice as to do what.

Choice is not about right or wrong. It is just that given a circumstance what have you chosen.

For Example, You and your friend go for a walk and your friend offers an opportunity which is risky and you have to make a choice, you can ignore which tells that you are not interested in taking risks or you accept the risky opportunity which talks about your willingness to take risks. Now, if you think which is the right thing to do, you never know untill you have accepted it. You can only know the outcome once you have decided to take the plunge and time rolls by.

Please read Part I

For this purpose banks want to get the money back as soon as possible. If you observe the chain of events, if say one or two defaults still bank will not be losing a great deal of money, its profit might come down a bit.
