Do you want a better life?

ubran peopleYour life not all you would want it to be? You want something better right? Perhaps you feel you deserve something better and maybe you do. Wondering who is at fault? Maybe you feel the fault lies with your parents or the teachers you had at school, right? Perhaps you feel the fault lies with your boss or your employer? They didn’t provide you with the right training or you didn’t get the breaks when there was an opportunity for promotion? Someone else got the promotion simply because they were well in with the boss, right? You feel that you were a better candidate than them and yet they got the job? It’s so unfair, right?

Well my friend I have to tell you, if your life sucks, there is only one person you can blame. Just look in any mirror and you will see that person staring back at you. You are responsible for your own life and life will always be what you make of it. You have to decide what it is you want; you have to work out how to get what you want; and then it requires determination and a lot of hard work on your part. There are no shortcuts. Nothing ever happens by chance. On very rare occasions you might get lucky and something will fall into your lap. However mostly you will have to work hard to get what you want. You will have to go out and make things happen. That’s life.

You really do have to know what you want; you have to be positive; you have to be prepared to make a few mistakes; and you have to be prepared to learn from those mistakes. Never allow yourself to be driven too far off course. Keep your eye on the prize you want; and never accept an answer unless it’s the one that you want.

Above all, never, ever let people discourage you from pursuing your dreams and ambition. It doesn’t matter what other people think; the only thing that matters is what you think. It doesn’t matter whether they believe you can do it, as long you believe you can do it.

You can be whatever you want to be, as long as you really, really want whatever it is. Everything is possible for those who never give up until they get to where they want to go. Life really is what you make it. This life is not a rehearsal. You only get to go round once. So make it the best you can and make the most of being you. You’re as good as anyone and better than most.
