What is your dream and how will you get there?
Do you dream big or do you settle for what you have?
You may already have everything you want but that doesn’t mean you don’t stop reaching. It doesn’t mean you stop searching.
If you have every step of your path laid out before you, then you know which direction to turn in your search when you are lost. Maybe you feel that you have already arrived at your destination. Ask yourself – have you? The journey doesn’t end so therefore the search doesn’t end.
Who do you believe is in charge of you and your destiny?
Is it the system?
Is it the beurocrats, the politicians, the government, your boss, your wages, your talents? No. These are all just aspects of your life.
I feel that the key word here is believe. Who do you BELIEVE is in charge or your destiny? It’s not society, it’s not the people who wronged you, forget them.
YOU ARE IN CHARGE, whether you believe that or not.
There’s that word again. That belief is what is important. That belief is what makes or breaks you. That belief defines you and shapes you into the person you will become.
If you don’t believe, then you will not change. Stand up, raise your chin, pull your shoulders back and declare to all in a strong voice “I am in charge of my own destiny.” Grab the bull the horns and get out there into the storm of a world we have to weather and take what is yours.
Take your destiny.
I speak metaphorically here, but the power is there, all you have to do is take charge. You have the power to get out of bed and go for a run before work. You have the power to spend one hour less watching Netflix and read a book from the library. You have the power to chose a salad or a pizza.
You are in charge of your destiny and don’t let anybody tell you otherwise.
Who do you think was in charge of Christopher Reeves destiny? Or Stephen Hawking? Or Viktor Frankl? Was it the horse that threw superman to the ground and broke his back? Motor neurone disease which slowed the world renowned physicist down to a physical stop but did it take charge of his life? The Nazis took everythign from Frankl but they did not best him.
Paralyzing injuries, debilitating sickness and an army of evil could not overpower these people.
They had the drive to keep going, to push through the hardest, life ending moments, to crawl through a river of shit and come out clean on the other side just like Andy Defresne in The Shawshank Redemption.
Forget about the privelaged folk who have everything, forget about the people you think you need to compare yourself to – they are not in charge of your destiny.
They do not care about your destiny. It is in your hands and you are in charge.
Take a pause and look around. Where are you? What are you going to do next? What did you eat today? Did you exercise? What did you learn? If you dont like the answer to any of these questions, remember that the rest of your life starts now and you are in control.
You have the power to change and shape your destiny as you chose. Not as someone else choses but as you chose.
Get up, look up, get out there and do what it is that makes you feel strong and powerful and keep on doing it. Keep on looking up.
You have the power to do what you want.
