Drive your Life.
Are you managing your life or is managing you? Your consciousness of your choices shapes your daily life. Make no mistake: you are always in the driver's seat unless you voluntarily move into the passenger seat. Your life is not defined by the circumstances that surround you. It is a result of the choices that you make in response to the things that happen.
If you are walking down the street and step into some dog "poo," you can spend the rest of the day ranting about the injustice of careless dog owners, the smell and condition of your shoes or you can wipe your shoes clean and move on. The choice is yours.One can certainly justify the argument--one should be responsible for their dog's waste. The question is, does it serve your greater good to focus on the injustice? Are you more concerned about being "right" or being "effective"?
If you surrender the luxury of managing your life, you will fall to the mercy of the most powerful force your path. Simply realize that it is a choice. There are NO VICTIMS here.
Success or sabotage? These are not things that happen to you; they are things that you create.
Is this going to be an incredible day? Is your answer determined by the circumstances or your choice?
