Why Are You Going With The Flow When You Can Create Your Own Flow

“The men who succeed are the efficient few. They are the few who have the ambition and will power to develop themselves.”– Herbert N. Casson

Remember, going with the flow is not the same thing as creating the flow. When you go with the flow, you have no control over your life, over your decisions.

When you go with the flow, you are not in your own zone. You are not thinking for yourself.

You are just doing what others are doing.

But when you have the courage to create your own flow, you are developing yourself. You are thinking for yourself.

You are living for yourself.

You are in charge of your life, your decisions.

Whatever you do, if you want to get to the top of it, you must not go with the flow. You must have the courage to create your own wave, to create your own world, to create your own life.

Instead of just going with the flow, instead of doing what others want you to do, instead of leading from behind, why not develop yourself.

Why not grow your spine to face life?

Why not face reality. Why not call it what it is?

Chance Is Always Powerful

“Chance is always powerful. Let your hook always be cast; in the pod where you least expect it, there will be fish.”- Publius Ovidius

What are you looking for? Are you crying for a new relationship? Are you searching for a new job? Are you planning to move to another city? Are you tired of where you are working?

No matter what you are looking for, you can achieve it. It is within your reach. And to reach it, you must look within yourself. Start with yourself. Look within for what you are looking for. Everything is within you. God has given you everything. All you need to do is to look within yourself.

“You can change yourself, but do not forget your values.”

If you don’t like where you are right now, change it. If you cannot change it, make it better. And if you cannot make it better, leave. But before you do that, you must know why you are living where you are. And when you leave to a new place, do not forget your values. Let your values guide your decisions. And to catch your fish, you must stay away from people who don’t want you to leave where you are. Because you won’t grow if you stay with them. They are okay with what they are doing, but you are not.

You can change yourself, but do not forget your values.
