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.
We have all the tools we need to succeed at life if we do not seek, we will never find, if we spend our time making excuses we can never do. We all have a choice, no matter what happens in life on the way we choose to live, if we let bitterness or laziness guide us, it leads no place, but the bottom. If we live by doing what we know is right, put all our effort into the smallest details, success, and opportunity will follow.
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.
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.
We close out another year and usher in a new decade. All of us tend to make resolutions on New Year’s day and yet how many of us follow through? We often give up within a month, why? Change is hard, leaving our comfort zone is not easy, does it mean we do not want to improve our lives? We all have dreams and aspirations, but are we willing to put in the work that it will take to reach them? If we want something bad enough, we will make the time, find the funds, be consistent and throw away the excuses.
We are all given gifts, they differ from person to person, it is what we do with them that counts. If we waste them or don’t use them for a good purpose, things never seem to fall into place. We all know what is good for us, we don’t need someone to take charge, nobody can do it better than we can for ourselves. Step up and take responsibility for our own lives.
