Who is in charge of your life? Is it you, or is it someone else?
Take a piece of paper, a pencil, and spend some time drawing a sketch of your life in silence, without any external distractions.
What are your circumstances? What is happening in your life? Who is part of your life? How do you spend your days? How do you spend your time?
Are you living up to your true potential? Or do you let yourself become influenced by other people, their opinions, and e.g. news and media?
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”.
Just think about it. We are constantly being influenced by people, news, and media. In these days of increased digitalism, many of us are constantly online, networking on social media. Do you control your online presence, or are you being swept away by external disruptions?
Are you on the right track in life, or controlled by external circumstances?
So many questions! And who has the answers?
Only YOU have the correct answers for your life. No one else. Not your family, your friends, your coworkers, your boss, the government, the news and media. No, no, no, do not let everyone else dictate what is right for you, what choices you should be making regarding your present life or your future.
You are the one who is in charge of your life destiny.
You are not here just to please others.
You are here to fulfil your life´s purpose, and to bring peace into the world. To travel the best possible road of your life, to develop yourself and your surrounding by being a wonderful example to other people.
Keep this in mind, every single day of your life. Do not let people and news/media surrounding you let you down. Instead, focus on positive energies, in yourself and in others.
“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it”.
