What happens in your life must be determined by you. If you don’t want to get a different result, if you want to achieve your goal in life, you must take charge of your life. You must take 100% responsibility for your life. It is your life. Do not forget that your life is your making. You make your life. You are the designer of your own life, of your own future. So if you want a better future, you must take charge of your own life, of your own thoughts, of your own actions.

To follow your own path, here are some strategies that will help you get there:

Have faith in yourself

Victor Hugo said, “Let us have faith. No, let us not be cast down. To despair is to desert. Let us look to the future.” That is what you should do. Whatever you want to create for yourself, you can do it. But you must first believe in yourself. If not, it won’t work. Do not let anything stop you from chasing your path. Do not do what others are doing. Do what you are here to do. Do not abandon your path. You can get there only if you believe in your own future.

Do not be scared to fail

You are going to fail anyway. Why is that? Because you can’t try something new without failure. It is going to come. You can’t stop it from happening. When it happens, do not take it personally. Because you are a learner, not an expert. And do not beat yourself up for failing. That is how we learn. So if you want to grow, you must embrace the power of failure. According to Leo Buscaglia, “To try is to risk failure, but risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.” If you don’t risk, you don’t grow.

Face your fears

Fear is real. But do not let your fear stop you from following your path. Do not let your fear keep you in a rut. All you need to do is to recognize it and keep on going. Because you have to overcome your fears if you want to achieve greatness in your life. And you can do it. If you have the courage to face your fears, you will grow. Will you face them?

Commit yourself to it

Before you start, ask yourself this question: “How bad do I really want to achieve my dream?” It is very important that you know why you are committing yourself to something. Because you do not want to waste your time doing something you do not love. You won’t be happy. Think about it. Because once you make the decision to follow your path, there is no going back. You are going to stick with it until it works. Can you do it?

Remember that your life is your own making. It is never too late to follow your dreams. Find out what makes you come alive, and then go after it with all your might. If you do it, you will succeed. Will you do it?

When Your Best Is Not Enough

You cannot achieve greatness without stretching yourself. If you are not getting what you want, you must do more than what you are doing right now. Because if you want more, you must do more. If you give more, you will get more.

No matter what, if you want to be successful, you must do more than what other people are doing. Because if you do what they are doing, you will get what they are getting. When you are doing your best, do not worry about failure. Just go for it. Just do your best. According to H. Jackson Brown, ” If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.” Do not focus on failure, focus on what you are doing.

If your best is not enough, then you can try these strategies:

“Put a few nickels in the machine.”

Do not expect to get the best if you don’t do your best. It is simple, but hard for so many people to follow. If you are not doing your best, if you are not giving your best, you are cheating yourself. You are not cheating your boss. You are cheating your future. According to Flip Wilson, “You can’t expect to hit the jackpot if you don’t put a few nickels in the machine.” If you want your life to change, you must put some “nickels in the machine.”

Develop yourself

If your best is not enough, you must develop yourself. You must do more than what you are doing right now. As Brigham Young famously put it, “Never let a day pass that you will have cause to say, I will do better tomorrow.” Do not let the fear of failure stop you from getting better tomorrow. To defeat fear, you must be brave. Are you brave enough to increase your best?

“Stay up and fight”

Life is all about fighting for what you want. If you don’t fight for what you want, someone else will help you. When you are faced with a problem, don’t abandon it. You must “stay up and fight” for what you want. If not, you are not going to get it.

Believe in what you are doing

if you don’t believe in what you are doing, you are not going to take it seriously. And to do your best work, you must believe in what you are doing. Anatole France once said, “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” If you believe in what you are doing, you will be good at it. Do you believe in what you are doing?
