Quote for the Week

“We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within.” – Earl Nightingale

Achieving success requires each of us to take control of our lives to guide us to our selected destinations. Letting life happen is simply not an option – that road will lead you somewhere but certainly not where you really want to go.

You have to charge, you have to call the shots and you have to keep pushing forward. The road will not always be easy, but it is the one worth taking. No one achieves success in any facet of their life by sitting back and letting things simply happen on their own. Successful people spend time deciding what they want and then working to make their desires into reality. Everyone defines true success their own way and everyone finds true success their own way. And most assuredly, living a successful life requires you to chart your own course and to maintain your own heading, even as life’s inevitable bumps try to push you off course.

The sooner you take both responsibility for where you are currently in your life the sooner you will accept it is you that needs to step up and take control of your planning, your execution of those plans and your reactions to curveballs that are going to come your way.

Think, plan and respond, don’t’ just react.
