Self-help author Brian Tracy put it best when he said, “You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.”
The first step in taking control of your life is to get to know you. Each action you take from one moment to the next brings you closer to taking control of your own destiny. Take the time to think about all of the things that you learned in school, through past employment, spiritual training and more to discover the real you.
Human nature allows you to choose your own destiny and take control of it. In order to create wealth successfully, you have to know where you are going as well as the path that will take you there. You must take on every challenge in your life as an opportunity to learn.
Living life is all about development and creation and you have the power to create your own destiny by deciding which direction you want to go and following through to get there. With a single decision, you choose the course you will follow to achieve the destiny you desire. You dictate your life through the choices that you make. No one else will ever be able to control you.
Here are a few tips to help you learn to take charge:
• Be positive, never expressing negative thoughts or feelings that will limit your success.
• Believe in yourself and your own intelligence, even if not all things come as easy as some others are.
• Understand that you may fail from time to time, but it is up to you to learn from your mistakes and continue with your plan to create wealth. Look at any problems you face as learning tools that will bring you that much closer to achieving your goals.
