It is magnificent to take action now to be independent rather than letting others control your destiny.
Each person knows or should know what it takes to make her happy, to reach her goals and succeed in her life. Once a person knows these things, if she wants to achieve them, she must take action now and move toward her own happiness, goals and successes. By understanding where one wants to go and then actually starting the journey to get there, one is more likely to reach the targets set, and get desired outcomes. Think about it this way, if you want to go from the front of your house to the back of your house, if you get up to the front door and start walking towards the back of the house, you are more likely to get there than if you sit on the couch and listen to your husband and children discuss how to move forward. The secret to success and independence is to take action, and move according to your own plan.
The alternative is to sit back and wait for someone else to take the lead. Imagine what life is like if instead of striving to take action now and be independent, you wait for someone else to develop a plan for your life and let that person decide where you will go and how you will get there. For example, let’s say you need to go to the market because you are out of milk and bread and you need to go to the post office to ship off packages. If you are letting someone else control your destiny, you may not get to the market today. Instead, you may be taken clothes shopping or to window shop for furniture. While those are both good things to do and things you want to do, that is not the best plan for you. After all, this plan created by someone else means that at the end of the day, you will return home with no milk and bread for your family and those packages will still be waiting to be shipped out. Thus, at the end of the day, the most important things for you and your family have not been done and you are not successful.
Imagine if instead, you took action now and controlled your own destiny. A few things would be different at the end of the day your family would have milk and bread. As a result, you would be better prepared to care for your family and you will have met their basic needs. This is a clear example of why you must take action now, be independent and control your own destiny.
In conclusion, it is magnificent to take action now to be independent rather than letting others control your destiny. So, the question for you this magnificent day is, what are you going to do today to control your destiny?
