“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back.”– Paulo Coelho

When it comes to your life, your growth, your success, whether you want to change yourself or not, life will not wait. Life will continue. Life will not look back. Your opportunities will not wait. Your clock will not stop. Your soul will not wait. Because if you don’t use your mind, it will deteriorate. Frank Herbert said, “Live the best life you can.” Live your life. Live your life in the present, not in the past. We don’t live our lives. Why is that? Because we live in the past. Believe it or not, it is time to change your home address. If you don’t, life will not wait. It continues. Life continues.

“Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it leads him.”– Henry Miller

When it comes to your life, live it. You have what it takes to live it. Just do it. Do not bring your past regrets into your present life. No matter what may have happened to you in your past, do not let it keep you away from your dreams. Do not wait for someone to change your life for you. It is your responsibility to do it for yourself. Do not limit yourself. You can live a good life. You can live a courageous life. You can live a happy life. No matter what, do not make the mistake of settling for less. You are better than less. You are for more, not less. To make that happen, you must do your own part.

Destiny Is Manifested Only Through Action

Action cures fear. It cures everything. If you want to move ahead, if you want to achieve greatness, you must make action your best friend. Because there is nothing you cannot achieve when you take action.

It is not okay to dream. It is not okay to talk. It is not okay to plan. If you want your dream to come to pass, you must take action. Talk will not do it for you. Planning is good, but you need to take action to put your plan to work.

Take action. Don’t live a life of inaction. Inaction is a disease. If you want to cure your inaction, take action. There is power in action. In the words of Suzy Kassem, “Destiny is manifested only through action. You cannot be the captain of your own destiny, only the sailor, because we cannot control external influences that may alter the stability or direction of our ships. Once you understand this basic principle, you won’t be so hard on yourself when things don’t go your way. If man could could write his own fate, he would have designed his journey to be without obstacles.” From now on, you shouldn’t worry yourself about what you cannot control. You can’t control what is happening out there, but you can control yourself.
