Master of Your Own Destiny

Sometimes I have to write things to motivate myself and keep me focused.  Like everyone else, I get discouraged when things don’t go my way.  Here’s what I had to write(rewrite) today to get focused on the task at hand…

When it comes to living life and living your dreams, you are in charge.  You determine where you stand in this world.  Often it may not seem that way.  There are bosses, husbands, wives, and children who might make you feel that they determine what your life is going to be like.  This is not the case.  Truthfully, you are the master of your own destiny, no one else.  You create your reality.  You are the only one who can determine what is best for you.

It is all about you taking charge of your own life instead of letting others do it for you.  This will require changing your mindset and refocusing on what is important to you.  The keyword is you.  You have to reclaim the power and control that you have mistakenly relinquished onto someone else.

People limit themselves all of the time.  They succumb to the pressure of society’s expectations.  They also start to believe that their lifelong passions and dreams are unattainable.  This leads to having a stressful and unfulfilled life.  The only person who stops you from being who and what you want to be is you.  You have to overcome your own objections.  You have to get out of your own way and focus.  You have the power to change things and live the life that you want to live.

It is not necessary to live a life filled with low expectations and unfulfilled dreams.  The sooner you accept that you can change the situation, the sooner you will be happy.  You have to stop believing that you cannot accomplish everything that you set out to do.  The reality is that you may not achieve your dream but you will never know if you do not try.

The sooner you realize this, the better.  It is never too late to be happy.  It is never too late change your situation and live a happier fulfilled life.  Do no let anyone other than yourself have power over you.  Create your reality and live in the now.  Only you can do this.  It may be a daunting task but the reward is worth the challenge.
