To me, it is a little disturbing to think about the substantial amount of people who simply accept things as they are. Going about their day without a care in the world; satisfied with their mediocrity. If you are going to be anything in this world, you cannot be comfortable with the status quo. Don’t be misled, some people are perfectly fine with where they are and are not interested in advancing. That’s simply their prerogative which they’re entitled to. While I have a serious issue with this, I am fully aware that we are all responsible for ourselves.
For a long time in my life I accepted things as they were hoping they would get better. After I realized that this method of thinking and acting was not getting me anywhere, I decided to start demanding things. The one thing that remains constant is the cordiality that exists with my every demand. Before you can demand anything, you must first be confident in knowing what you want; be clear. Once you are clear on what you want, you will be more discerning as it relates to your options. Basically, you won’t be so quick to accept just anything and you shouldn’t.
This is also true in the relationships that we forge. If you are with someone who is not treating you the way you are supposed to be treated, reevaluate your situation and create an exit strategy immediately. The fact of the matter is; you deserve better than what you are currently choosing to accept. Make smart decisions and wise choices that benefit you in the long run. Remember that life’s journey is all about the choices we make; choose wisely.

Are you the captain of your ship and the master of your soul? Do you direct your own path or do you count on others to direct you? Do you make your own decisions or are the decisions that affect your life based on what others think you should do? Aside from assistance from a trained professional, not only is it wise but it would behoove you to make your own decisions. After all, you have to live with the outcome not the person directing you.
Advice is free which is precisely why most people seek it and most people give it. We all know that you get what you pay for. Hence, if you aren’t paying for the advice you are seeking, how much value could that advice have? Do not be misled; some advice is priceless and can certainly come from someone who is not a professional but you should certainly limit those options to people who have “been there and done that”. Most people seek advice from people who have never even been in their specific situation. That’s like asking someone to guide you through a path they’ve never traveled themselves.
Unlimited power comes from your ability to direct your own path. There is a decision that you are keeping from making perhaps because you are not sure what the outcome could be. I submit to you that you will never know until you make the first move. Stop asking others and make a decision, now, today. There are clear benefits and consequences to every decision you make. The only person that should be thinking for you is you. In short, make your own decisions and live by them. Your own two feet are the only ones that can direct your path.
Think for yourself.
