Have you ever asked yourself why you do the things you do?

“Sometimes, we’ll make a bad choice in our life, and it doesn’t seem so profound. But here’s the problem: you make a bad choice, and it compounds itself.

My life has gone by with me working toward something I don’t want,” Dr. Phil says. “You realize you’re not making active choices; you’ve become a passenger.”
