Life is about freedom. Freedom is about choices. And making choices is about your self-awareness, self-respect, self-confidence and self-determination. You cannot make good choices without believing in yourself and your skills, knowledge and abilities.
You will only become powerful in your life when you start making self-determined decisions and backing them up with the right actions. Because when you make decision, there is no going back. There is no escape route. You just have to go and act on your decision. That is when your mind does not even have chance to scare you. You don’t have time for fear. You are busy doing what you have to do in order to follow your decision and you forget about irrational fears and excuses. When you set yourself goals and immediately start acting on them you’ll leave no room for undermining thoughts. You’ll set yourself free … free from fear, from failure, from unfulfilled dreams, from disappointment.
Give me liberty or give me death!
Patrick Henry (1736 – 1799)
Successful people live free lives. They do not expect failure. They don’t give their fears chance to drag them down. They set themselves goals and they do whatever it takes to make them come true. When things don’t go the way they expected, they learn from the situation and continue in their pursuit. They don’t fail because they act and they learn and they succeed. Those who live without chasing their dreams are those who fail. Those are the ones who die inside.
Don’t be scared to make wrong decision, to do wrong thing. Because there’s no wrong move. You can only succeed or learn. But if you don’t listen to your desires and instincts you give up on your life. It’s only us being responsible for our decisions and actions, no one else. You cannot blame your circumstances or people around you for what happens to you. Once you take responsibility for your life and start making self-determined decisions and acting on them, you’ll find what you’re looking for. You’ll set yourself free.
