“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey –and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”
–Bob Moawad —
Taking ownership of your life is about declaring to yourself and then to others what you want. Don’t talk about what you don’t want. Throwing out the negative will insure that negativity pushes back against you. Then go about getting what you want. Don’t blame people, circumstances or things. See them as stepping stones or obstacles to overcome on your way to having your own life. These become learning opportunities. You learn that you must become bigger than your challenges. If the challenges remain bigger than you then you really haven’t committed yourself to having a life of your own. And, even worse you will never experience success which is the fuel for momentum and more success. In the end, the people who have decided that their life is their own have one thing in common. All of them had certain people, circumstances and things they didn’t like. Then they made a decision. They got up, decided to become bigger than their challenges and changed them. Your life is your own when you start changing it to be what you want.
