“You don’t see your prison because its bars are invisible.”- Dan Millman

To know what is possible, you must first know who you are. If you do not know who you are, what you want, and where you are going, you can’t help yourself. You can’t get yourself out of your own trap. Look, whatever you want, you can get it. But you must do the dirty work. You must first get out of your own prison.

Prison? According to Dan Millman, “You don’t see your prison because its bars are invisible.” A lot of people are in prison. Some know why they are there. Others don’t care to know why they are there. Look, if you don’t care about your own life, who do you think is going to care? Who?

“Only when I know who I am will I know what is possible.”- Ram Dass

As I said before, if you want to create a better life for yourself, you can do it. To start, you must know what you want, who you are, and where you are going. Ram Dass once said, “Only when I know who I am will I know what is possible.” If you do not know who you are, how are you going to know what is possible?

Knowing who you are is the first step to getting what you want. If you know what you want, you can get what you want. If you don’t know what you want, you can’t get what you want.

To get what you want, if it is not out there, then create your own opportunity. Shakti Gawain said, “You create your own opportunities by asking for them.” That is right. Why? Because everything is out there. Opportunities are out there. And they belong to those who know what they want. If you know what you want, you can get them.

The door is open. If you want to know yourself, what you want in your life, then you must first be honest with yourself. Why is that? Because “fredom is for honest people.”

L. Ron Hubbard once said, “Freedom is for honest people. No man who is not himself honest can be free- he is in his own trap.” If you are honest with yourself, you are free to live your life on your own terms. But if you are not honest with yourself, you are in your own self-designed prison. You are in your own trap. To get out, do not lie to yourself.

How To Create Your Own Opportunities

Chris Groser says, “Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.” Opportunities are everywhere. Do not limit yourself. Whatever you want, you can get it. But it comes with a price? Are you willing to pay the price to get what you want? Are you willing to be defeated? Are you willing to fail? Are willing and ready to do the impossible, to walk alone? Are you?

If you really want it, you will have to do what others don’t want to do. You will have to first overcome whatever it is that is on your path to your success. And you will have to prepare your mind.

Remember, nothing is impossible. Whatever you want, if you want it badly, you can get it, if you are willing to pay the price. James Allen said, “The price of life is effort.” Because nothing happens without action. If you want to succeed, you must take action. Do not just dream. If you want it badly, you must take action to make it happen.

Dream is the beginning. Action is the end. Dream starts something. Action finishes it.

Opportunities are everywhere. But if you do not focus on opportunities, you won’t see them. Do not forget that you only get what you invite into your life. If you want something, go for it. Do not fear failures. Do not fear mistakes. People don’t try because they don’t want to fail. If you do not want to fail, then how are you going to get to where you want to be? It won’t happen.

As Seth Godin put it, “If you’re working on the frontier, if you’re leading, creating or inventing, you’re signed up for mistakes. That’s the price of innovation.” So if you want to grow, you must sign up for failures. If you want to get to where you want to be, you must sign up for more mistakes.

Do you have the courage to do it?
