Take Charge of Your Life


You need to do hard things to be happy, healthy and successful. Because the hard things ultimately build you up and change your life.

It's so easy to take for granted one of the most important things on this planet...our individual self. You are so very valuable and all of us so often underestimate the value we bring to ourselves and to others.


How often do you pause to appreciate your life just the way it is? Sure you've got challenges. I do. Sure you've had some rough days. I have. However, look around right now, and be thankful…for your health, your family, your friends, your comforts, your home. Nothing lasts forever.


Millions of people live their entire lives on default settings, never realizing they can customize everything.

As sure as the sun rises, you have 24 hours in each day to take charge of your life and nudge it in the direction of your hopes and dreams. Unfortunately, there is a problem. The problem is, so many just approach each day and really don't give a lot of thoughts as to where they are headed and what amazing choices they have right at their finger tips each and every day.


Some of the most powerful moments in life happen when you find the courage to let go of what can’t be changed and begin to take charge of your life. There is a challenge out there, it's called life...your life. I've got a thought: What if you chose to accept the challenges of life and take the actions necessary to take charge of your life? Actions begin with a baby step, a hop, a jump or a significant leap. For me, I try each day to begin with the desire to excel and a passion for greatness. I don't care at all about greatness and being famous. The kind of greatness I care about is in everything I do in every day which I am alive. I want to be great at loving others, great at being kind to others, great at motivating others, great at helping others and oh, being great to myself. Yeah, let's NOT forget about ourselves. 😊


Will you consider an action? The action is to accept. You must be willing to accept the challenge to be successful in life. By the way, what is your definition of success for your life? No matter what your definition of success is, you must choose to accept the challenge and get moving forward!


People spend their entire life waiting for opportunity. They spend time waiting for great things to happen. Instead of waiting for opportunity, take charge of your life, and begin to build your future by facing each day with a spirit of optimism, excitement, and actions!


What are some actions you can take today and turn them into good habits to enable you to take charge of your life?
