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?"

If You Are Not Making Progress, This Is What You Are Not Doing

Where are you now? Where do you want to go? What do you want to do with your life? 
If you do not know what you want for yourself, ask yourself this question:
"What do I really want for myself?" Answer it honestly. Face it squarely.
Do not hide behind anything. Do not hide behind any past failures, fears. Don't.
Because you are better than you think you really are. 

Do not be scared to question yourself. Ask yourself some tough questions. Ask yourself questions that you can't even answer. 
Ask yourself questions like these ones:
"Why am I here?" "Am I growing?" "Do I know what I really want?" Are my dreams really my dreams?" "Am I spending my time with the right people?" "If I am not getting the right results, what am I going to do to get to where I want to be?" 
And be comfortable with the answers. Take actions.
Actions lead to growth. And you can't grow if you do not have the courage to look at yourself in the mirror. 
To grow, you must question your actions. To grow, you must have the courage to question yourself, to question where you are, and to question what you are doing. Will you?
