“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.

How To Get What You Want From Life

To get what we want from life, we must first know what we want. Most people want something but they don’t know how to get them.

You will be successful if you know what you want.

You will be successful if you know how to get what you want.

You will be successful if you focus on getting what you want.

You can get what you want if you believe you can. Napoleon Hill said, “You can do it if you believe you can.”

You can really be successful if you can just do more than you are paid to do. Do more than you are paid to do. Don’t do what others are doing. Do what you think is right, and what will push you closer to your dream. Again, Napoleon Hill said, “Render more service than that for which you are paid and you will soon be paid for more than you render. The law of ‘increasing returns’ takes care of this.”

Let us look at more ways you can get the best that you so much deserved in life.

Take responsibility.                                                                     

When you take responsibility for your actions, you are giving yourself power to conquer other bigger and more challenging things ahead of you. But if you blame other people for your actions, you are giving your power away. Don’t blame anyone. Take responsibility for your actions.

You must accept responsibility for your actions, but not the credit for your achievements.”- Denis Waitley

Act!

To get what you want in life, act! Don’t wait for the perfect time to do it. Do it today. If you don’t take action to change your life, your life will not change.

Don’t watch the clock, do what it does. Keep going.”- Sam Levenson

Stop procrastinating.

Your success will not come from putting important things off until tomorrow. Your success will come from doing the first and the most important things first. Don’t procrastinate.

Arthur Ashe said, “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”

Failure is not final.

If you fail at something, don’t take it as final. It is not final, and it will never be. It is okay to fail when you are finding the right path to success. If you want to be successful, you must be comfortable with failure.

As Margie Warrell put it, “Just because you fail at something does not mean you’re a failure.”

Be patient.

It takes 10- 20 years to be lucky. If you want to be lucky, you must be patient. Success goes to those who are patient, not those who are always running. Be patient. Success is a process, not by accident.

“Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.”- Arthur Ashe

Think positively about things.

No matter what is happening around you, focus on the positive things. When you focus on positive things, you will attract positive things into your life. When you focus on negative things, you will attract negative things into your life.

“We are not permitted to choose the frame of our destiny. But what we put into it is ours.”– Dag Hammarskjold, economist

Everything is possible if you want it badly. Focus on what you want and you will get it.
