Take control, don’t take what life gives us, instead we dictate what we get from life. There is no point waiting around for something to happen, its time to get out and make things happen. it’s our choice!
How do we spend our time? What is important to us? Self-control and discipline will set us free, from the whims of immediate gratification. Our lives will never be settled until we understand this. If we never do then we just won’t find what we seek. We know the route, the question is are we willing to take it?
Today many of us have time if we take the easy path we will not grow, the other way will be hard, it will take self-discipline and consistency, we will not know where it will lead, but it will take us places. The way to destruction offers little resistance, the journey to achievement is rough, we will fall, we will get up and we will continue forward. Which path will you choose?
Life is not the same as yesterday, it is no longer last week, we are living in the now. We cannot treat life as before, we face it as our reality at this moment. Good or bad it is so, our energy can be wasted on complaints or we can improve on our current situation. We can build now, so that when the opportunity comes we are ready, if not we can watch as others reach their goals.
The life we have today is a combination of habits, some negative, others positive, therefore we have the power to change our reality. When we feel something is important, we will make time for it, if we cannot, well then it’s not a priority. What could be more important than improving ourselves? Life is a constant lesson, the less we fight it, the more we grow.
Each new day gives us a set amount of time to accomplish what we must. It is how we spend that time that is important. Time wasted placing blame for our own failures is time thrown away, yes we all fail, but giving it more energy will not help or lessen the sting. We can instead ask ourselves why our results were not satisfactory, what was our part and how can we rectify the problem. There is no easy way, no magic pill, no life hack, it takes time, work, and lessons learned to achieve happiness.
If success has eluded us, when we know we could be doing so much more, the time to reevaluate life is here. We must be honest with ourselves, the hard choices made, a plan with defined goals, yet with the flexibility needed in the real world should be thought out. Change begins when we recognize that must master ourselves, holding in check our desires, passion, and excesses.
