Wake up & think positive
` The ideal life is in our blood and never will be still. We feel the things we ought to be beating through the things we are.' Phillip Brooks - 1835-1893
I like my life but I do sometimes wake up and wonder if this is the life that I was meant to live or am I living it because of my own choices or circumstances. Is it fate or is it of free will? I wonder because I want to be better in every capacity. I like my life as it is because it is my life but I want to be better. I want my life to be better, for if it is better, so will the lives of others. Another word for this desire may be progress, a craving for success and or positive evolution.
I keep on coming to the conclusion that it is based on the choices that I have made. Yes, the lives that we live are also based on the choices that others have made for us or that we have made because of others but at the end of the day it is always a choice. Yes, circumstances do affect our choices and circumstances can make life difficult to live a grand life but we are not helpless to overcome the circumstances. I like to think that my circumstances are not greater than me and that I have the capability to overcome circumstances.
Life is not difficult. People make it difficult and we make it difficult. Life does not place obstacles in our path. People, culture, society, governments and organizations put obstacles in our path. Most important of all, We place obstacles in our own path. Life is neither good nor bad but according to the degree that we make it so. Our lives are neither good nor bad but to the degrees that we make it so or allow others to make it so. We live life according to the choices that we make and one of those choices is success.
Each day is as successful as we make it. Today is as good a day as any to decide to be successful. Today is as good a day as any to decide to have a great day. If you can wake up and plant the thought in your mind that ` I am going to have a good day today', the likely hood is that you will have a good day because it is a very simple, realistic and achievable goal within an achievable time frame. If you can wake up and insist that I am going to have a positive day today, then so it shall be.
If you can wake up and decide that you are going to be successful today or start a project today that will have life changing effects, yes you and and yes it will. One of the greatest tricks to any journey, including success is to plant the thought in your mind and feed the thought with action. Another trick is that you have to take the first step because nobody is going to take those steps for you and every journey begins with the first steps. Once you have started moving, keep on moving in the direction that you want to go in and keep on doing what will get you to your destination.
Have a positive monday morning and a successful week.
