Waiting for your boat of dreams to sail in? Hoping your train of opportunity arrives? Wishing for someone to give you a break? Sorry to bust your bubble but it all won’t happen unless you make it happen. What you want in your life can only happen if you make it happen.
Think of someone you admire or look up to as a mentor. Imagine how they got to be where they are today. I’m sure they didn’t become who they are today by sitting back and wishing and waiting. I could almost bet they made things happen in their life to help themselves succeed in the goals they set out for. Did they face roadblocks and have bumpy rides along the way? Of course they did but they either worked through it or figured out a way to work around it.
A happy, successful, meaningful life doesn’t just happen. You need to make it happen. Sitting back and hoping life gets better for you is not how it’s going to happen. Giving up too easily is not going to make it happen for you either.
Thinking outside of the box or going through non-traditional means is a good way to creatively get to where you want to be in life. Looking for multiple ways to solve the same problem is another way to make it happen for you. Sometimes you have to be brave enough to close one door in your life in order for a better door to open up. It’s all up to you.
Life has a way to bring the things we want when we are open minded, positive, and are willing to accept whatever comes our way; good or bad. You could have the life you’ve always wanted but only if you are willing to make it happen. Take charge of the wheel when the ride gets bumpy, hold onto tight, and steer you life towards the direction you want it to go to. Your destination is waiting for you. Just remember that it all begins with you.
