Take Control

One of the first things successful people realize is the old adage, “The time will pass anyway, so why wait.”
Your course is up to you. Partner with others if you have to. Success can require more than one persons idea, hands, skills to accomplish a single goal or many. Take responsibility for your life. Become an Entrepreneur.
Too many people today look at opportunity and think it is up to someone else to make sure they get it. They wait and wait, and before you know it so much time has passed by. And then the wait is over, and it is too late to do anything. Their life is over and they are filled with regret. Opportunity doesn't knock, you create it. 
  • Go to learning places: museums, bookstores, libraries...
  • Get involved: seminars, webinars, events in area or out of area
  • Read: audio books, regular books, poetry reading, book readings
  • Utilize: All that you learn apply it. Learning is nothing without action

No one else is going to do it for you. You must do it yourself.

Some might think, That’s a lot of responsibility. But here’s what to think: Best news you can hear from us. You get to choose your life. Hundreds of millions of people all around would give anything to live in the situation you do—to have the opportunities to take control of their destiny. “It is up to you” is a great blessing!

Here’s why:
1. You get to chart your own destiny.

Maybe you want to start a small business. That’s great because you can choose that. Maybe you want to create a small chain of stores. Maybe you want to have a net worth of $100 million+. That’s OK, too. The point is that you get to choose. You can do whatever you like. Different people have different dreams and they should live them.
2. You reap what you sow.

Sleep in and go to work late and reap the return. Or get up early and outwork the others and earn a greater return. Place your capital at risk and earn a return. Place your capital at greater risk and perhaps reap a greater return. You decide what you will sow and thus what you will reap.
3. No one else can stop you from achieving your dream.

Yes, there will always be obstacles that come up and people who may not like what you are doing, but you can just move on and chart your own course. There is great freedom in that. Doubt has killed more dreams than failure ever did.
4. You experience the joy of self-determination and motivation.

There is no greater reward than knowing you set your mind on something and accomplished it. Those who live with a victim mentality never get to experience the joy of accomplishment because they are always waiting for someone else to come to the rescue. Those who take responsibility get to live the joy of seeing a job well done. Discipline yourself is like telling yourself no to bad things and saying yes to good ones. 
5. Write your goals down and make a checklist and create new ones.
When you write things down they become clearer. You have a physical thing to focus on. As you begin to cross off each completed task, you're getting closer to your destination. Make a vision board and get creative too. Imagine your goal as already achieving it. The answers will come to you of their own accord as those creative mental juices begin to flow. Procrastination is linked to low self esteem. You don't believe in yourself or believe at all therefore, you can't achieve what you don't believe. Practice your newly found good habits until they are so inwardly a part of you. 

Let me ask you a question: Where will you be in five years? Ten years? Twenty-five years? Do you know? Do you have an idea? Have you ever dreamed about it or set a goal for it? Are you willing to take responsibility and recognize that it is up to you?
You will be wherever you decide to be at that point. You decide. It is up to you. And that is very exciting!
