Your Life Is A Reflection Of Many Choices You Have Made

Steve Maraboli writes, “Your life is a reflection of many choices you have made at the innumerable amount of choice-points you’ve crossed.” Life is about choices. Don’t worry about the bad choices you have made in the past. You can’t change the past, but you can change your future. You can change your future by paying attention to what you are doing right now. What you are doing right now is shaping your future.

You can change your life today. Don’t let your bad choices hold you back. Don’t let your past mistakes hold you back. If you want to change your life, you must change yourself. You can change your life by taking advantage of the opportunities around you. “Don’t sleepwalk through your life”. If you delay yourself, the opportunity will not be there for you. If you want to catch it, you must wake up. You must not sleepwalk through life.

Once you have made up your mind to pursue something, don’t think too much about it. Because if you spend your entire life thinking about it, you will cripple yourself. Once you know what you want for yourself, for your life, for your family, then make your decision and then do it. Don’t wait. Don’t wait for the perfect time to do something. There is no such thing as a perfect time. If you want to do something, if you really mean it, do it today.

If you want to get something done in your life, you have got to do it yourself. You have got to follow your path. You have got to do your own thing. Allen Ginsberg said, “Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” If you wait for someone else to do it for you, you are going to wait forever. Make up your mind for yourself. And you will get what you want.

Why You Do Not Need Permission To Live Your Own Life.

Man is the marker of happiness and misery.”- James Allen

“He is happy whom circumstances suit his temper; but he is more excellent who suits his temper to any circumstances.”- Daniel Hume, philosopher

Happiness comes from self-control. Happiness comes from creating the life you want for yourself and your family. You are the only one who can change your life. You are the only one who can design your life. No one can do that for you.

If you want to change your life, go ahead and do it. If you don’t do it, nobody will do it for you. Your life is yours to design. Know this: you don’t need permission from anyone to design your life. You need permission from yourself. If you seek permission before you start to live your life, then you are not really the owner of your life.

In order to be successful in life, you must hold the key to your life. If you give it away, you will never find it.

You are responsible for your life. You have the right to live your life the way you want to live it. If you don’t lead your life, someone else will lead you. Do you want that?

It is good to hold the key to your life in your own hand. There is nothing you cannot do when you are in control of your life. There is nothing you cannot do when you hold the key to your own power house- your mind. You can do anything, but with hard work. Are you ready to work really hard to change your life? If you are ready, you can change it.
