Have you ever noticed that people are always blaming their circumstances for what they are?
George Bernard Shaw said, “I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstance they want, and, if they can’t find them, they go out and make them.”
Some circumstances we chose and others were chosen for us but regardless of the circumstance we get to decide how we will act in every situation.
Jo Condert said, “Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave or lose. To the question of your life, you are the only answer. To the problems of your life, you are the only solution.”
We have to work out our own destiny. We are the solution to the great problems in our life. There is no one else who can work through our obstacles for us. As we realize this we become more empowered and learn to act boldly and decisively in the direction of greater happiness and success. After all, the world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.
I leave you with the words of Mike Dooley:
“Life’s not about expecting, hoping and wishing, it’s about doing, being and becoming. It’s about the choices you’ve just made, and the ones you’re about to make, it’s about the things you choose to say today. It’s about what you’re going to do after you finish reading this.”
