Do whatever the hell you want

Ever loved someone so much you would do anything for them? Yeah, well make that someone yourself and do whatever the hell you want.

Can I speak to the manager please?

Who is in charge of your life, your health, your fitness, your education and your voice in the world?

You are!

You are responsible

If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.

Les Brown

It is up to you to decide who you are and what kind of life you are living.

Sometimes it helps to think of life as a game. Compare it with role-playing games for example, where you get to choose your character traits and adjust your behaviour accordingly to your beliefs.

Why not to that in real life? Yes, there are difference, but let’s focus on the similarities for now: You can decide who you want to be and you can shape this person according to your likings and beliefs.

This is a huge advantage but also comes with a lot of responsibility.

You have to realise that you have this responsibility and you have to act accordingly. Remember:

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much

With this in mind, enjoy your week!

Enjoy the detours

It’s worth recognizing that there is no such thing as an overnight success. You will do well to cultivate the resources in yourself that bring you happiness outside of success or failure. The truth is, most of us discover where we are headed when we arrive. At that time, we turn around and say, yes, this is obviously where I was going all along. It’s a good idea to try to enjoy the scenery on the detours, because you’ll probably take a few.
