Take a good look at your life. How does it look like? Why is it the way it is? Is that a reason for it to be the same in the future? Now look at your dreams. Is your daily behavior going to take you there? If so, awesome! If not, why know? When would be the right time to start adjusting your behavior so it can take you to the life you want to have?
Yes, I’m aware about the limitations. I know that there are no money, nor the right circumstances, the right knowledge, the right people. I know that health can be a problem and that it seems the time is not enough. I know that others will judge us whatever we do because that’s how the world works. The thing is that we can either to let those circumstances define us or we can try to find ways to deal with those circumstances and do something extra for the life we want. Why? Because we have no choice. Nobody will come and try to transform our life for our own good especially if we’re not willing to do it.
Gary Vaynerchuk makes a great point about this responsibility thing. We can either be in the driver’s seat of our lives, or we can let others control it and its direction. Is that right? No. Is it easy to take the control back? Not necessarily. There will be some hard feelings involved once those people realize they cannot control our life anymore. But in the end, is our life, not theirs.
