It’s Up To You

Everything you have ever wanted in life takes effort. Fulfilling your dreams,enriching your family life,healing relationships,and so on.

Inorderwords,you may need to give up the illusion that life should be comfortable.

Finance and Investment author,Charles B.Carlson once said, “You are successful the moment you start moving towards a worthwhile goal.The truth is,life is difficult. To overcome its challenges,you must exercise and strengthen those muscles that produce tenacity,passion,and persistence.”

It is better to live a balanced life,a life based on your most important values. This is the secret to experiencing joy and meaning in everyday.

It took me several years to fully grapple with this truth.It’s about taking personal responsibility for the outcome of my life.

Personal responsibility is being able to take care of one’s well-being without expecting or blaming others to do it for you.

By working on your own character and skill development rather than blaming others for situations and circumstances,you are definitely taking personal responsibility. It moves from the inside to the outward.

When you begin to take responsibility for your thoughts,choices,and reactions,then,can you be responsible for the circumstances you create in your world.

You can control your ability to design your life and your philosophies. A philosophy of personal responsibility allows you to live from an inner core of integrity bringing a sense of satisfaction and fulfilment.

Now,it is time to vanquish the critical voice of judgement and accept all you are with love and compassion.

You deserve love and acceptance.Remove any mask,liberate the authentic you and you will feel powerful.

You cannot move forward if you are always looking back . Unchain from past issues and heal what is broken.

For the sake of your health and your relationships,release any anger you have been holding inside. Learn to forgive. Sometimes it’s important to let go.

Learn to express your true feelings about issues even when others do not agree. Do not lose yourself along the way by being beholden to everyone. Move forward on your journey with courage and faith.

American business man,Jim Rohn said, “Learning is the beginning of wealth.Learning is the beginning of healthy. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process begins.”

If you feel jaded,think back to what used to be the greatest fun for you and do it again. Do more of it and laugh more. We get so entrenched in our obligations that we become boring. You do not need an exciting or glamorous career,or to own your business,or to have passion for what you do. Passion comes from you. Work and relationship do not make you passionate, you do. Passion is like a flame that needs to be ignited.

You have everything inside of you to make it to the top. No matter how big the dream is,your potential is equal to the assignment. Purpose gives birth to responsibility and responsibility makes demand on potential.

Your life is on a mission. You cannot give up your freedom of choice in any given moment. Everything can be taken from a man but one thing:the last of human freedom. To choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances;to choose one’s own way. You are what you made out of life.

Remember,it’s up to you!
