Be The Driver Of Your Life

“The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.”– Henry Miller, writer

Buddha famously said, “Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.”

Your life is yours to live. The worst mistake you can make is to allow someone else to control your life. If you allow people to control your life, then you are not living your own God given life. The aim of life is to live a fulfilled life, not a borrowed life.

The fines thing you can do for yourself is to be your own driver. Drive yourself to wherever you want to go. No matter what, always be your own driver. It is important to be your own driver because you know yourself better than anyone out there. You know what you are good at; you know what you are not so good at. Most important, you know where you are going to in life. Seneca famously said, “If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.” That is right.

If you are the one driving yourself, you know where you are going to. But if it is someone else driving you to somewhere, for sure, you don’t know how it is going to end. It is hard to face reality. Face your own reality, and you will never regret it.

What does it mean to you to have control over your life?

In life, it means a lot. Human beings don’t like to be controlled. We don’t like to be told what to do, and what not to do. We like to figure things out ourselves. That is what makes life interesting. That is what makes us want to try more strange things. That is why we want to experiment with new things.

When you are in control of your life, it means you can do what you want, when you want it, and how you want it. But is it still possible to live like that in today’s society where everything is controlled and regulated? Yes, it is still possible. You just have to mindful how you go about doing it.

The purpose of living is to be able to have control over our decisions. We make decisions on a daily basis. If someone else is in control of your life, the person is in control of your destiny. Then you are not living. You are just existing. To live a fulfilled and accomplished life, we should be in total control of our lives. Period.


Who Are Your Friends?

Who are you friends? Who are the people you spend your time with? Are they lifting you up or putting you down? Are they growing or dying? Are they positive or negative people?

It is your choice. It is up to you to decide how you want to spend your time. Remember, time is gold. Time is everything in life. If you waste your time, you waste your life.

We don’t just need people around us; we need great people around us. You need great people in your life. People who will help you succeed in life. People who will lift you up when you are down. People who will bring light into your life. People who will never hurt you. People who are doing productive and great things with their lives. You need them. They will challenge you to be better than you are today. They will encourage you to do the impossible. They will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.

Nadia Comaneci said, “I believe that you should gravitate to people who are doing productive and positive things with their lives.” If you want to grow, if you want to be a champion, this is a good advice for you. You cannot be a winner if you keep associating yourself with losers.

When you associate yourself with people who are doing great things with their lives, before long, you will start to do great things. You will start to think and work like them. Find a person who is doing well in life, and research what they did, and how they did it. Make it a habit of listening to great people, people who have done great things with their lives. Before long, you will start to think and act like them.

If you do what other successful people are doing, you will be successful.

The Power Of Intuition

Your intuition has a very powerful message for you, listen. Listen to your inner voice. It has something to tell you.

When you are listening to your inner voice, listen without bias. Listen with an open-mind. Be sincere in your listening to your inner voice. Don’t fake it. Be sincere in your search for direction and guidance.

What you hear depends on where you are, and what you are listening to. What you see depends on what you are searching for. Your inner voice will direct you to make the right decisions, to success, to be who you want to be, if you listen.

Your inner voice will be powerful if you listen. Your inner voice will be powerless if you don’t listen. It is the only thing that can help you when you have nowhere to turn to, when all your options are used up, and when you have limited data to make critical decisions.

It is always there to help you, just listen!

Walk away from unproductive people

As Jim Rohn said, “Walk away from the 97 percent crowd. Don’t use their excuses. Take charge of your life.”

One thing is common among successful and productive people: they do their own things. They set their own rules. They control their lives.

One thing is also common among unproductive and unsuccessful people: they follow the crowd. They follow other people’s rules. They cannot make their own decisions. They are followers. They do what people ask them to do.

If you want to be successful, walk away from people who are not adding value to your life.

If not, you are allowing them to come into your life and steal your dream from you. Don’t allow that to happen. Don’t give them a place to stay. If you welcome them into your house, they will never go away. They are suckers.

If you have been hanging out with unproductive people, it is time to say a big goodbye to them.”

From now on, don’t allow them into your house anymore. It is time to get stuff done. No more messing around.

You are the master of your life. Don’t let anyone take charge of your life. If you allow them, they will take you to a dry land, where there is no food.

Take charge!
