It’s never too late to grow into the person you were born to be.
All actions we take are preceded by thoughts. In between the thought and the action is a decision. You need to be conscious that you are making decisions all day every day. What you eat, what you watch, what you read, how you speak, how you dress etc. One of the biggest choices and probably the most important is the choice of ‘blaming’ or ‘claiming’.
Never complain to anyone about anything if they cannot do something about it. When things don’t go right for you whether at work or in your personal life, you can blame yourself, the circumstances or another person OR you can claim the gift in the seemingly negative situation. People who are great always claim problems as well as victories. That’s what makes them great. The world needs more heroes like that because heroes spend their days looking for the best in any adversity. They see the best in others and they dig for the best in themselves. Consequently, they claim their greatness.
An extraordinary life is not something available to the select few who inherit great genetics or lots of money. It is not only available to those who live in fancy neighbourhoods and go to the best universities. Every one of us is destined for greatness. We are all meant to live spectacular lives; it is in our DNA. BUT we need to do our part. We need to make the right choices to make it happen. Choice by choice. Step by step. Small gains eventually bring big results.
So lay claim to your greatness. Stop being a prisoner of your past and become the designer of your future. That’s the first big choice you can make today.
