See How to Take More Charge Of Your Destiny

Look around you. What do you see? I know…you could be seeing some beautiful scenery or something less than that. However, my focus is on the people you see.

Isn’t it amazing as you look at the people around you not one looks the same? And, what is true for your current view is also true if you could see all the people in the world.

Not one of them would look or be exactly the same. I find it amazing that is the case given the fact there are over 7 billion people in the world.

I harken back to a statistic I have shared in previous posts. Scientists have estimated the physiological odds of any one of us being born at 2,240 trillion to one.

No wonder not one of us is exactly like the other! The diversity of the human genome minimizes the chance it can happen…too many options to the various combinations of our genes.

So, what’s the point for you?

Well, I’m trying to get you to reflect on the wonder of your individual miracle and the beauty of your uniqueness. Fact is…it doesn’t get any better than you! You’re a wonder regardless of how insignificant you may think you are when considering the other 7 billion of us.

Think like Oscar Wilde who said:

“Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.”

So—after considering the above thoughts…

Quit looking for excuses! Stop pointing fingers! Give up on looking for scapegoats! Forget about looking for who’s to blame!

It’s you…PERIOD!

Your worst enemy is you. It’s your mindstate (mood) which drives how you think and how you think is how you’re going to act.

If you think you’ve found an excuse, you will act on that excuse. If you point your finger at someone else as the problem, you will act like they are the problem. When you think you’ve got a likely scapegoat, you will act like you’re not at fault.

If you think defeated, you’ll act defeated. If you think like a victim, you are going to act like a victim. If you think you’re not to blame, you will act like you’re not to blame.

In every one of these foregoing examples…

It’s you…PERIOD!

Your worst enemy is your own mindstate. Change your mindstate and you change your thoughts and resulting actions.  You change the outcomes in all aspects of your life…PERIOD!

You control the master switch of your own mindstate therefore you control the energy necessary to making the changes in your life you want. You CAN flip that switch!

There’s only one key…having the will to do it. Where do you get that will?

It’s you…PERIOD!

Nobody else is going to find it for you.

Will comes from emotions. When you make an emotional connection to something you want, you take charge and flip the switch summoning the will to do it.

PERIOD…It’s you!!

What is the first thing you will do to take more charge of your destiny?
