Choice gives you power. And you get to choose everything about your future.
Too many people never take that step – never acknowledge that they are the architects of their life and their business. It’s too easy to blame someone or something else for their apparent inability to become a success.
Winners aren’t successful by accident. They didn’t just happen to fall into it. They chose it. Strategically.
The only thing standing between you and that audacious dream of yours is your willingness to choose, so you can stop all the complaining and sobbing and hanging on to your story about why it’s all just so difficult. Get on with the business of being successful.
Successful people are not the ones telling you how hard it is, are they?
The ones telling you it can’t be done are those who aren’t doing it. They are attached to their identity as a person who struggles, who carries on in the face of insurmountable odds, who takes on too much and crumples under the pressure because they are addicted to the attention they get for the struggle.
Choose today, right now, to let all that go.
Choose to stop seeking credit for all you’ve been through and start seeking the personal satisfaction that only comes with accomplishment.
Choose to stop wallowing in your need to be validated for your suffering.
Choose to release your white-knuckled grip on your need for sympathy and validation from other people and start doing the things successful people do.
They choose a goal (how much, by when).
They determine what it will take to reach that goal.
Then they go do that.
They do not wait for permission.
They do not look for affirmation from others.
They don’t waste their time allowing drama to infect their life.
And they do not seek credit for trying.
You can be enormously, abundantly successful or you can be a martyr. You can’t be both.
Now go take charge of your life!
