I’m a work in progress and that’s motivation in itself to me. I compete with no one else but myself, daily. Fact. Every day I wake up and have to decide on whether I’m going to allow life to take control of me or whether I will take control of my life.
I have to be better than what I was yesterday. I have to improve. I have to be stronger. I have to be healthier and more physically fit. I have to be more creative, have more ambition, more goals. I have to work on all the relationships in my life. I have to grow emotionally, spiritually and mentally. I have to keep going. I have to let some things go. It’s a decision I choose.
What can I do today that my future self will thank me for? What’s going to make me smarter? How will this be congruent to what I am trying to achieve in my life? How will I make a difference to my overall well-being but also to the lives of others? How can I get the best out of today?
I’m the expert of my own life, no one else’s; and have always wanted to share my wisdoms as I go along this journey of life. I don’t claim to have all the answers – I just live my life as best as I know how and if I can help, motivate, shed happiness or inspire at least one person to be better or to allow for someone to resonate with my experiences along the way, then that just makes me happy; and more inspired.
Start today with a decision. The decisions you make shape your destiny. What to eat, what to wear, who to associate yourself with, who to date, what your next job should be, how much sleep you should get, what you will allow to continue, what not to let affect your emotional state, what will make you happier; all these sorts of decisions will either help or stifle you in your growth in every aspect of who you are.
You have to know what you want. You have to take the time to figure it all out. That in itself is a decision. You have to realise and understand the hardships and work that will go into achieving your goals. You have to have courage and strength. You have to have determination. But before all that, you have to decide. You have to decide what you want.
It’s easy to think you are merely interested in something and think about accomplishing it. But it’s a whole different matter when you decide upon something and wholeheartedly go ahead and do everything you physically can to achieve it.
“You have to cut ties with things that hurt your soul”.
For today, whether it’s a big decision or small one, whatever you do, MAKE THE DECISION.
