Life Doesn’t Just Happen

Nothing happens by accident. If you want something, go for it. You can achieve whatever you want. But to achieve it, you have got to work for it, to pursue it, to create it, to build it, to nurture it, to love it, to bless it, to enjoy it. If not, you are just dreaming. 
It doesn't matter what you want. If you choose it, it will choose you. If you want something, do not let fear stop you from choosing it. Do not be scared to choose yourself. Do not be timid to choose your life, to choose your dreams, to choose you. 
When you choose your life, your life will choose you. No matter where you are, it is important to choose you. No matter what is going on in your life, it is important to choose you. No matter what you are pursuing, it is important to choose you. Why? Because when things are not going well with you, you are still you. You are still alive. When things go wrong, you are still you. You still have the power to choose the life you want to live. 
Do not let anything keep you from living your life. Not even you. Choose yourself. When others say you are not good enough, the best way to fight back is to choose yourself. When the road ahead is not clear, the best way forward is to choose yourself. When you choose yourself, the world will choose you. Let me ask you: "Do you have the courage to choose yourself?"

4 Ways To Make Today Count

To make today count, you must live it. And if you do not live it, if you do not choose yourself, you will lose it.

To make today count, try these four strategies:

“Put your whole heart into the present”

James Allen said, “Put your whole heart into the present, living it, minute by minute, hour by hour, and day by day, self-governed and pure.” If you really want to make today count, you must stay in the present moment.

Choose yourself

Chogyam Trungpa once said, “Unless we are able to make friends with ourselves, there is no hope at all. If we abandon ourselves as hopeless, as villains, then there is no steppingstone.” To know yourself, you must embrace yourself. Do not reject yourself, no matter what. Even if others don’t like you, if you are for yourself, no one can be against you.

Stay away from negative people.

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always o that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”- Mark Twain

Face a situation fearlessly

Florence Scovel Shinn said, “Face a situation fearlessly, and there is no situation to face; it falls away of its own weight.” If you do not believe in your own self, if you cannot face life, consider what you are doing to yourself. You are limiting yourself. Because you do not have the courage to face life, to face your fears.

Remember, to defeat something, you must face it.
