~ Your Life Is Your Own ~

 Your life is a result of the choices you make

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours, it is an amazing journey, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.

Nobody is more responsible for where you are now than you. You have the power inside of you to become the success that you want to be! Start becoming detailed and clear about the things that you really want out of life.

What is holding you back? Is it failure? Some of the biggest and most successful people in the world are driven by their failures from their pasts. Don't think of failure as an obstacle to your life, but instead think of failure as one of your biggest allies, for without failure, there is no success.

Condition yourself for success. Find people who have done things similar to what you want to do, and model your own life after theirs. All of the knowledge and wisdom is out there for you to use, but you have to use it to become successful by actually putting forth great effort, and taking action.

Life is strange, sometimes very dark, and very uncertain. Some think of life as passion, and some think of life as what a man is willing to give his or her thoughts to. Some call life a continual cycle of new surprises, while some say that life is one thing after another, as it were only a series of events.

One thing that we may all conclude about life is that it is definitely what you make it. You will always have a choice in life, and from these choices you will have laid out the path you traveled, whether it is one that you had to beat down and create for yourself, or whether it is a road that you traveled along with everyone else who wasn't really too much interested in making their life their own.

Make out of life whatever it is that you desire to make out of it, just be sure to make something.

We are all guilty of making some bad decisions in our lives. No one is perfect, and no one is all knowing besides the Almighty God. It is important not to focus on the decisions we made in the past that we now know have faults, but instead it is most important that we try to learn from what we have been through so that we make better decisions as each day goes forward.

If we also learn why we made the bad decisions we made then we will be even more likely to not make the same types of decisions again. Was it because you were attempting to avoid some type of pain or fear? What were you feeling in this moment of weakness, and how can you move forward in your life without making the same type of decision or better yet, how can you make it so that you move forward without even putting yourself in the same type of position again?
