Create Your Destiny – Use Your Mind, Take Charge of Your Life

If you look closely at this marvelous process of Life, you will know that anything and everything in Life is cyclical.

When you see six feet of snow outside, you’re not worried that it’s going to be winter for the rest of your life.

You know that spring is just around the corner!

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair”
– Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Actually everything in Life can be as simple as this.

I don’t mean to say that you should adopt a Pollyanna attitude or ignore challenges.

You just need to make conscious decisions – to keep your life simple; to emerge stronger from every challenge that Life presents to you.

♥Economic ups and downs come and go;
♥Stock markets may fluctuate like crazy;
♥And job markets may follow their frenzy;
…..These are the ebbs and flows of Life.

Circumstances may be tough and challenging at this time. But from the cyclical magic of Life, we know deep inside that good times are just around the corner.

Especially if you are lucky to live in a free country like the United States of America, you have no reason to blame your stars.

The United States of America is a “dreamland” for thousands of immigrants who pour in every day, to materialize their American Dream.

Yet, too often we see folks in America blaming someone else or their stars for their flaws or inadequacies or lack.

For example:
☻”I’m overweight because ….. of those tempting cheap fast food restaurants.”
☻”I get fired too often from myjob because ….. of those inconsiderate profit-minded corporate businessmen.”

There are always silver linings in clouds – only you can uncover that silver lining that is yours.

What a sad picture! Really?

Does this mean that you have no control?

I don’t think so, folks!

You do have control.

In fact, you and only you have the real control of your Life!

It’s ironic that we often complain about things that we have control over; but do’nt take control of.

The process of taking charge and being in control (of anything and everything in your life) has to start from within.

That’s right – You need to ask the question “What can I do to help myself?”

So, What can You Do to Help Yourself?

It starts with diligent use or the most beautiful gift that God have given all of us humans – the Mind.

With this gift comes our:
♠ability to analyze,
♠freedom to rationalize,
♠power to make our own choices and,
♠responsibility to choose wisely.

So when you’re down – put your Mind to work.

“If you are born poor it’s not your mistake.
But if you die poor it’s your mistake”
– Bill Gates

Use your Mind wisely, and most of your blues will fade away before you know. You may not be able to change others – but you can always change yourself.

Fast food restaurants are always going to be there – You cannot ask them to shut down!

☺But, you can make that choice to not stop by for an order of French Fries or Hot Fudge Sundae.

Beats me, if you’re even thinking about changing the profit-minded attitude of corporate businessmen who employ you!

☺But, you can make that choice to learn a new skill or look for a new job if your boss is nagging you.

Life is simple – It is your responsibility to Keep It Simple♥ ♥ ♥
