Shaping Your Life




You just can’t let life happen to you, you have to make life happen.”
Idowu Koyenikan

Many people think about their lives as something that just happens to them instead of something that they can create themselves. They drift through life reacting to the actions of others instead of taking steps on their own behalf to shape their life.

By taking responsibility for our lives we not only gain control of what happens. It also becomes natural to feel like you deserve more in life as your self-esteem builds and as you do the right thing more consistently. You feel better about yourself.

Not taking responsibility may be less demanding, less painful and mean less time spent in the unknown. It is more comfortable. You can just take it easy and blame problems in your life on someone else. But there is always a price to pay. When you do not take responsibility for your life you give away your personal power.

When we take the time to set a positive personal intention, we are setting ourselves up with what we want to bring into our lives.When we return to it over the hours, days, weeks, and even months, it begins to take shape in our lives. Our lives begin to form around our intentions and we begin to notice how intention finds its way into action. We start to see our lives change shape before our very eyes. What we think, we become.

To change what is wrong in your life, you must believe that you are the one in control. Taking charge of your liver means not blaming other, complaining or criticizing when you don’t get what you want. Instead accept full responsibility for your life, whether you caused it or not; even external problems can have internal solutions. Taking responsibility for your life will empower you, foster success, and heighten self-esteem, all of which lead to increased happiness.

Choose your words carefully so that they reflect precisely what you are trying to bring to yourself and your life. Look for ways today to begin to shape your life for the better…..

you can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”
Stephen King
