You Have The Power

I can give you the road map, but you have to drive the car. You are responsible for 100% of your life. We have been conditioned to blame something outside of ourselves for the parts of our life we don’t like. We need to start saying to ourselves, “I have created my current conditions and can uncreate and re-create them.”

You need to stop looking outside of yourself for the answers as to why you don’t have what you want. You have control over three things:

  1. Thoughts that you think

  2. Images that you visualize

  3. Actions that you take

You can either create or allow everything to happen to you. In order to find your purpose consider this:

Make a list of times you have felt most joyful and alive (what are the common elements of these experiences? Can you figure out a way to make a living doing these things?)

Create a compelling statement of your life purpose to guide and direct your behavior

Read your life purpose every day

Once you decide what you want, you have to decide how to get it. Don’t live someone else’s dreams. Don’t settle for less than you want.
