We have the power to create the life we want. We have the choice to choose.That’s a pretty powerful statement. It’s one that we often hear in the motivational and self-improvement worlds to the point where it’s over used and undervalued. For a lot of us the true depth of it is beyond comprehension. The idea that we are in ultimate control can be frightening and overwhelming.“What if I get it wrong?”.Having the power to create the life you want, makes you completely responsible for its outcome, and at blame if it’s not how you desire. As we grow up, often, we are taught to put other’s needs before our own, to stop being selfish, and to care about others more than ourselves. While the intent of these statements are honourable, when we put them into action we are the ones who suffer. We are the ones that fore go our own goals, and dreams to help others create theirs.If we are in control of the content of our lives, then that means that we have the ability to create or destroy it. We put so much effort into keeping things the same, or pushing ourselves down that we forget, we can supply that same level of effort to lifting ourselves and improving our own lives in the direction that we wish to.You have the choice to choose the life you want, and it will take the same amount of effort to create it as it will to destroy it so why not choose to create the dream that you have in your head.
