Quite often we hear people saying how they want to take charge of their lives. Bemoaning the fact that they don’t have enough “Me” Time, not enough hours in the day to do what they would really like to do, or not enough money to do it with. This usually coincides with New Year’s Day, when people like to make their New Year’s Resolutions. Tomorrow sounds like a good time to start, right?
Well, bollocks to that. Who’s in charge of your life? Not your boss, not your manager, not your parents, not your teachers, certainly not your peer group. YOU are in charge of your life. Nope, things haven’t suddenly changed while you were sleeping, they’ve always been the same. You have always been in charge of your own destiny. You just forgot and let other people and circumstances take over. Sometimes it’s easier to sleepwalk through life and then wonder at the end what it was all about. But remember, you only have one life, and it’s happening Now, so you’d better make it count.
To fill your life with great memories and great deeds, first you must do all those things you’ve always wanted to do. Everything is achievable on the other side of fear. The trick is just to begin. Fear is a great paralyzer. Everyone hates change, it brings uncertainty, we all like to live in a cosy world where there’s a place for everything and everything’s in its place. But, change happens all the time, and if we don’t learn to duck and dive and roll with it, then we might as well be dead. Don’t live a life of regrets and “What If”s, fill it with “Remember that time when” instead.
