According to Brian Tracy, “You have within you the potential to accomplish wonderful things with your life. Your greatest responsibilities are to dream big dreams, decide exactly what you want, make a plan to achieve it… take action every single day in the direction of your dreams and goals, and resolve to never, never, never give up. When you take these actions, you put yourself on the side of the angels. You become unstoppable and your success becomes inevitable.”

It is your life. You are responsible for making it better than it was yesterday. To do that, you must decide exactly what you want to do with your life. Remember, your dreams are not going to come true just by thinking positively about them. You must take action. You must get out of your comfort zone. You must have the courage to do what you haven’t done before. Positive thinking is good, but not enough to make your dreams come true.

If you want your dreams, your goals to come true, you must do something about them. You must put your dreams in front of you every day. When you do nothing about your dreams, you are actually doing something about them. You are ignoring them. You are closing the door to your success. You are closing the door to your future life. You can change that by doing a little more than you have always done in the past. Your ability to do a little more can change your life. Nothing happens without taking action.

Do not let what happened to you in the past to determine your present life. To do that, you must learn how to guide your mind against negative thoughts. In the words of Nigel Cumberland, “Not allowing what happened in the past to determine your future starts in your mind.” If you want to get to where you want to be, you must do everything within your power to protect your mind from invaders.

If want to achieve your dreams, don’t be afraid to follow your own path. Dan Rockwell writes, “Adopt practices that express who you are to become who you aspire to be.” That is the fastest way to get to where you want to be. The question is: Are you ready to walk alone?

You Cannot Change Your Past. You Can Change Where You Are Going

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”– Buddha

The reason you are not happy is because you never stop thinking about your past failures. You never stop thinking about your past bad relationships. You never stop thinking about where your friends are now. You are dwelling in the past. You are living in the past, not in the present.

Let us be real here. How are you going to see yourself when your mind is not with you? How can you focus on your life when you are not there? How can you live in the present when your mind is not with you? If you have been doing it, it is time to stop. It is time to start living your life. It is time to forget about yesterday. You are not the only one with a bad yesterday. Don’t think you are the only one suffering. Don’t think you are the only one who is struggling right now. We are all going through things, but they are different.

What you are going through is meant for you to go through. It is designed to make you stronger, not weaker. So take it as what you have to go through to get to the other side of your life. You can’t change your past. You can change where you are going to.

Don’t worry about what you going through right now. You may have lost your job, but it is not the end of your life. You may have messed up your school exam, it is not the end of your road. Whatever you are going through right now is preparing you for what is to come. And a lot of things are coming. So be ready!
