I hope this spurs you on to do something, to get up from where you are sitting or standing and take some form of action and responsibility for your life, the main thing here is ‘to do’, to make some kind of movement and take some kind of action, it doesn’t matter what, or where, even if it means just standing up from where you are sitting, take that next step towards the direction you want to go.

For example, do you want to be a writer? Then take the very next step and start writing, it doesn’t matter what, just begin writing, you may say you don’t have a computer, that’s fine, pick up a paper and a pen and start writing, you don’t have a pen or paper, then pick up your phone and start writing in your text box, it does not matter if you feel like it or not, just begin.

‘control your own destiny or someone else will’ – Jack Welch

And yes, there are many people out there who would like to take responsibility for your life, but no one else can really do a better job of your life than you, so have you been standing by as a spectator while your life passes by? You might say, there is nothing you can do about your situation or about where you find yourself today, but is that really true? 

Thomas Edison wrote, it is madness when you do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result

Decide to do something different today, you have not been getting the results you want anyway so what do you have to lose by daring to do something different? 

You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great – Les Brown

You have to accept the fact that you are the master of your fate, the captain of your ship, so steer it in the direction you want it to go.
