The power of decision is available to all of us. We have an enormous opportunity to choose what we want to do BE. Every day we choose what to wear, what to eat, what not to eat, where to go, who to talk to, what to watch…Is this not a blessing ?
The most difficult question is “what do you want to be” Do you want to be mediocre, average, letting life pass you by kind of person or you want to be great, successful and in control of your life ?
It is Up to You
One of the first things successful people realize is the old adage, “If it is to be, it is up to me.” That is, for you, the fact that your success and your course is up to you.It simply means that you take responsibility for your life and your career.
Too many people today look at opportunities and figure it is up to someone else to make sure they get it. They look at financial security and hope that the government will make sure they live safely in retirement or in case of disability. They wait and wait, figuring that it is up to someone else. And then the wait is over, and it is too late to do anything. Their life is over and they are filled with regret.
1. Maybe you want to start a small business and stay there. That’s great because you can choose that. The idea is that you get to choose. You can do whatever you like. Different people have different dreams and they should live them accordingly.
2. You can reap what you sow. Sleep in and go to work late and reap the return. Or get up early and outwork the others and earn a greater return. Place your capital at risk and earn a return—or place it at greater risk and perhaps reap a greater return. You decide what you will sow and thus what you will reap.It is all in the simple things, the simple changes that you make. #Lifestyle Click To Tweet
3. No one else can stop you from getting your dream. Yes, there will always be things that come up and people who may not like what you are doing, but you can just move on and chart your own course.
4. You experience the joy of self-determination. There is no greater pride than knowing you set your mind on something and accomplished it.
Jim Rohn is one my mentors. Although I never met him, as soon as I got introduced to his teachings, I felt immediately inspired. He had a simple way of explaining his concepts that made you want to try for yourself. And this is what I did, I applied some of his wisdom, and can say that only good things came out of it.

Let me ask you a question: Where will you be in five years? Ten years ? Or 25 years? Do you know? Do you have an idea? Have you ever dreamed about it or set a goal for it?
