Own Hero




Victims declare,“The world is responsible for me,” and never do anything to better their quality of life.”
Henry Cloud

Whatever life throws at you even if it hurts you, try to be strong and fight through it. Remember, strong walls shake but never collapse. Experience is what you get when your plans do not go as planned, and experience is the most valuable commodity you own – it builds your strength.


When we are thankful for what we have, we are always rewarded with more. Try to stay positive and focus on making things better. Change your thoughts and you change your reality. And mindset is especially powerful when it comes to accepting that…


But when you do the work to overcome your difficult experiences, you can heal. This is how you grow. Truth be told, when hard times hit, and the challenges you face are great, you can either let your situation define you, let it destroy you or let it strengthen you. The choice is yours to make.


Life may not be perfect, but it can be good. Our goal need not be to create a perfect life, but to live an imperfect life in a far reaching way. To get up every morning and take a good look around in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is extraordinary. Every day is a gift.


When we stop expecting things to be a certain way, we can appreciate them for what they are. Ultimately you will realise that life’s greatest gifts are rarely wrapped the way you expected.


Ultimately, your happiness depends on your self reliance – your unshakable willingness to take responsibility for your life from this moment forward, regardless of who had a hand in making it the way it is now. It is about taking control of your present circumstances, thinking for yourself, and making a firm choice to choose differently. It is about being the hero of your life, not the victim. Choose to be the hero of your own story.


“Today is a new day. Don’t let your history interfere with your destiny! Let today be the day you stop being a victim of your circumstances and start taking action towards the life you want. You have the power and the time to shape your life. Break free from the poisonous victim mentality and embrace the truth of your greatness. You were not meant for a mundane or mediocre life!”
Steve Maraboli
