What if life didn't happen to you, it happened for you?

I read an article today and i would like to share it to all. 
“What if life didn’t happen to you, it happened for you?”
  • What if I examined all of the crap that had happened “to” me before and saw where it had led me? 
  • What if I realized there was a purpose for every circumstance of difficulty, struggle, pain, and trauma? 
  • How would my perspective change if I realized my quality of life is directly related to my reactions?
  • Would I stop and appreciate these moments of darkness, if I realized they are necessary to guide me to the light in my life?

With a change in focus, you can change your life. If you’re looking to change your life too, realize you have the power to do it.
Instead of waiting for life to happen, make it happen. Instead for waiting for a change, create a change.
Create a vision for yourself and your life and use the opportunities that come when life throws you a curve ball to review your goals and dreams.
You may discover a speed bump was a wake up call to focus on something important you may have otherwise overlooked.
Where do you see yourself in six months, in the most important areas of your life? 
  • How is your life incredible? 
  • What is something that you enjoy then that isn’t in your life today? 
  • What excitement, adventures, and amazing experiences do you have? 
  • Who do you know? 
  • Where have you been? 
  • How do you feel? 
  • What do you do on a regular basis? 
  • How are you awesome?

Now draw it in to three months: What has happened and needs to happen three months from now to get to your vision? Be specific! 
  • Are you trying something new? 
  • Have you changed your daily habits? 
  • What do you fill your time with? 
  • What is it like to be this awesome you, three months from now?

Hone in, one month from today. 
  • What is different? 
  • What steps have you taken to this new-you six months away? 
  • What are you up to? 
  • What have you accomplished? 
  • What are you working toward? 
  • What have you consistently been doing for the past 30 days?

What happens to you a week from now? 
  • In seven days, how have you changed your habits and your life to steer its course to something new and incredible? 
  • What are you planning? 
  • What is being implemented? 
  • How do you feel?

Now plan tomorrow. Repeat daily.
Plan your time, because time flies, but the good news is you’re the pilot of your life.
Stop waiting for life to happen to you and take ownership for leading your life. 
You have led your life to amazing places already, and there is no stopping where you can go from here.
