“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
No one else steers the wheel of your life. At the end of the day, you are the captain of your own journey. You call the shots. You are the one who makes the decisions, not other people. It is you who decides which road to take, which path you should follow. It is you who picks from the cards that you are dealt with. It is you who creates your life.
To know the purpose of your life is wonderful, for it is true this knowledge that you actually get the inspiration that you need to pursue the kind of life that you want for yourself. You start with figuring out what you want your life to look like. Once you have envisioned that life, you then proceed to making your goals. And it is not enough that you only make goals. You need to stick to them. You need to make sure that you will achieve all of them. How do you do it? Simple, you just need to get in the right mindset. You need to be more positive and nurse only positive emotions and thoughts for any negativity will surely stop you in your track, probably even before you start.
If you think that your life is now swerving into the wrong direction, it is about time that you start getting back on the path that you chose for yourself. While there is nothing wrong with believing that your story has already been written in a book somewhere and things will just go as planned, wouldn’t it be better if you are the one who creates your destiny? Would it not be even more exciting to know that everything good that will happen in the future will be the results of your right actions and decisions today? Would it not be more fulfilling on your part to know that your success in the future is actually the product of your perseverance and determination at present?
To life a life fully, you need to live a life that you created yourself. This way, there will be no regrets, no pointing of fingers, and no disappointments. This way, you can say that even though there might be failures along the way, at least, you did what you need to do and no one dictated you to do things that you do not want to do.
Create your own destiny! Find the path that you want for your life! Start living your life today!
“No matter what your history has been, your destiny is what you create today. What are you going to create?” ~Steve Maraboli
