And every decision could be affected by outside influences which could persuade people to make a choice. Sometimes, one is faced with the choice of which juice to drink in the morning, a very minute decision to make. There are other, more substantial decisions like choosing which college to attend or whether or not it is the right time to buy a home. Depending on the size of the decision and influence, everything that happens in one’s life could be crucial moments that determine the final outcome of one’s life. This was seen in Rudolfo Anaya’s Bless Me, Ultima and Bernard Malamud’s The Natural.

He once lived a regular life, with two parents and had a younger sister. He went to university after spending his childhood in school. His stubbornness led to him leaving his parents, donating all his money to charity, abandoning his possessions, and hitchhiking for a few years. Being a well-educated man, Chris could have had a nice job at his father’s firm, which most people would dream of having. Instead, he decides to throw away that part of his life because he was a man who didn’t like to be controlled. He liked to be free.
