Wow, what a true statement! If you do not take control of your life and what you want
from it someone else will and you might not be pleased with the outcome. Only you can decide
what you would like to do for the rest of your life. No one else can make another successful or
cause them to be a failure. Only you can determine whether or not you will be successful based
on what you believe you can do and then what you proceed to do. If you tell yourself that you
can do something and work towards that something, eventually you will reach your goal. But if
you sit back and expect someone else to make you successful you will be waiting a very long
time. Additionally, don’t allow someone else to convince you that you cannot do something you
truly want to do that is within your ability to do.
All of us must have a means to support ourselves financially but only we can determine
how we will make make a living and be happy while doing it. Within certain restrictions, we all
have an opportunity to run our lives as successfully or unsuccessfully as we are willing to accept.
The restrictions I am referring to involve how we are willing to work with others. For example, if
an individual desires to be a mail carrier but only deliver mail at night he or she has a problem.
This particular individual will have to bend to society’s restrictions that mail is delivered during
the day. But overlooking that type of restraint, as long as an individual meets the qualifications
of a mail carrier, he or she may become one.
Therefore, do not allow anyone to run your life but yourself! If you believe you can do it
you can. Believing you can do something is the first step towards success but if you don’t have
faith that you can do it you won’t! Believe in yourself, take control and run your life before
someone else does for you. I sincerely hope you are now inspired enough to make a decision to
take control of your life and do it.
