According to Brian Tracy, “You have within you the potential to accomplish wonderful things with your life. Your greatest responsibilities are to dream big dreams, decide exactly what you want, make a plan to achieve it… take action every single day in the direction of your dreams and goals, and resolve to never, never, never give up. When you take these actions, you put yourself on the side of the angels. You become unstoppable and your success becomes inevitable.”

It is your life. You are responsible for making it better than it was yesterday. To do that, you must decide exactly what you want to do with your life. Remember, your dreams are not going to come true just by thinking positively about them. You must take action. You must get out of your comfort zone. You must have the courage to do what you haven’t done before. Positive thinking is good, but not enough to make your dreams come true.

If you want your dreams, your goals to come true, you must do something about them. You must put your dreams in front of you every day. When you do nothing about your dreams, you are actually doing something about them. You are ignoring them. You are closing the door to your success. You are closing the door to your future life. You can change that by doing a little more than you have always done in the past. Your ability to do a little more can change your life. Nothing happens without taking action.

Do not let what happened to you in the past to determine your present life. To do that, you must learn how to guide your mind against negative thoughts. In the words of Nigel Cumberland, “Not allowing what happened in the past to determine your future starts in your mind.” If you want to get to where you want to be, you must do everything within your power to protect your mind from invaders.

If want to achieve your dreams, don’t be afraid to follow your own path. Dan Rockwell writes, “Adopt practices that express who you are to become who you aspire to be.” That is the fastest way to get to where you want to be. The question is: Are you ready to walk alone?

There Are No Limitations To What You Can Do To Change Your Direction

Life has the best things in store for you. There are no limits to what you can do. Life has enough resources for everybody. But you are responsible for making your own dreams. Nothing is coming to you without fighting for it. You’ve got to get out there and fight for your dreams. Creativity is free. You can turn your life around if you are willing and ready to pay the price.

Stop limiting yourself. Whatever may have happened to you in the past, let it go. Forget about it. That is not where you should be right now. You are living in today, not yesterday. You can only live in the present. You can’t live in the past. You can’t live in the future. But you can live in the moment. People live in the past because it is comfortable and easier to do than to face reality. To move forward, you must stop living in the past. You must stop beating yourself up. It doesn’t worth it. You deserve more than what you are giving to yourself. You deserve love, happiness, peace of mind, and a balanced life.

Don’t limit yourself by your past mistakes, disappointments, and failures. It is okay to make mistakes. If you are not making enough mistakes, you are just dragging through life. You are not growing. You are not doing new thing. If you are not doing new things, you are not adding value to your life. The only good thing you can do with your mistakes is to learn from them. Think positively about them. But do not dwell on them. Get away from “I wish I could have done something differently” statement. It won’t help you. It will hurt you.

You have done a lot of good things in your life. Those are the things you should be thinking about. Because the more you think about good things, the more good things you will attract into your life. The same is true for negative things. The more you occupy your mind with negative things, the more negative things you will attract into your life. It is not good to focus on what you have done wrong in the past. It is not good to focus on what has not been working well for you. Instead of doing that, you can focus your energy and time on what has been going well for you. You can do more for yourself. All you need to do is to retrain your mind. Because you can’t use a negative mind to change yourself. But you can use a positive mind to change yourself.

The more you think positively about yourself, the closer you are to where you want to be. Don’t limit yourself by your own thoughts. Negative thoughts beget negative actions. Positive thoughts beget positive actions. Take charge of your life. You are in charge. According to Brian Tracy, “You are the architect of your own destiny; you are the master of your own fate; you are behind the steering wheel of your own life. There are no limitations to what you can do, have, or be. Except the limitations you place on yourself by your own thinking.” If you have the courage to drive your own car, you will get to where you want to be. But if you allow other people to drive you, you will never get to where you want to be. Don’t limit yourself. Don’t limit your own life by your thoughts. To stop that, be mindful of what you think about every day. If you can control your thoughts, you can control your life. Because you are the master of your own life.
