You are free to decide as you will, but not free of the consequences of your decisions...

Everyone is free to make his or her own decisions in life, but it must be remembered that every single decision carries with it one or more consequences. 
While you are free to decide how you will live your life, whether to obey the law or break the law, whether to live with honour and character, or live without regard to these things, every one of your actions have consequences.

This is why you should carefully consider each action BEFORE you act. 

Actions, just like words, cannot be undone once they have been performed. Oh, you can work to correct certain consequences of your actions, but the original action cannot be undone. 

The past cannot be changed.

The wise person will always consider the consequences of his actions BEFORE he acts. After the action has been performed, it is too late. 

The consequences will follow. Start taking life a little more seriously. 

Start acting as if your actions carry meaning, because in the grand scheme of things, they do.

Too many people choose to forget or ignore the "c" word (consequences). Those same people also usually choose to forget or ignore the "r" word, "responsibility".

Your life is your message. Gandhi

Do you walk your walk or merely talk the talk? 

Knowing what to do and how to live is one thing, applying what you know to your life is something completely different.

You must apply wisdom for it to be of any use in your life. People will pay more attention to what you do than what you say. 

In the end, your life is your message; how you live is what people will remember. 

Make sure you are walking the walk, and not simply talking the talk.
