You are the captain of your own ship. You can steer it to where you want to go or not. It’s up to you. It takes hard work, determination and a positive mental attitude. It requires a willingness to rise to challenges, to have a go. You will have to overcome setbacks occasionally and you must never, ever give up. You will be defined not by what happens to you but how you respond to what happens to you. If you don’t succeed in life, it’s not the fault of your parents, it’s not the fault of the Government and it’s not the fault of your employer. You are responsible for your own life. You may have had a tough start in life. Life may have dealt you a poor set of cards. You may not have too many formal qualifications. So what? Plenty of people overcome a difficult early life to become very successful. Don’t make excuses. If you want success, then go for it. The choice is yours. Decide where you want to be and then decide how you’re going to get there. Get started now and accept you’ll make a few mistakes along the way. By doing you will learn and gradually you will adjust the course of the good ship ‘You’ and set sail for the destination of your dreams. It can be done. So do it now. If you need a role model, Les Brown would be a good one.
