You Decide: your Life

Steve Maraboli once said in  Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience that “If you hang out with chickens, you’re going to cluck and if you hang out with eagles, you’re going to fly.”

I believe this is true, the set of guys you move with will determine how far you will go in life. Its so unfortunate that most of us feel this is not so because you wonder how this works. let me help you;

If you move with people that all they do is complain and lament on how life has not been fair to them, you will unconsciously join them in similar conversation. This is the first stage, later in the corner of your room you will mostly focus on how bad life has been to you and how you may end up like your fellow colleagues.  Remember as “As a man thinks in his heart, so he is” The more you think about it, you start acting toward it. You begin to see everything in a negative way and the unfortunate thing is it end up like that. Now I believe you can see how your friends affect your life and altitude in life, your character becomes defective and patterned towards failure and mediocrity.

“What we call our destiny is truly our character and that character can be altered. The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes does not need to be  discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny. One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, background. All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us. We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.”
Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

If you are of age and you still live by rules set by others, I’m afraid you haven’t start living. Don’t get it twisted, what I’m saying is you need to realize you are in the driver’s seat of your life and you determine what the next few years of your life will be like through the choices you make today. I charge you today to set your own rules and determine to live by them, no one have the right to play God over your life, you can quote me anywhere. Its a new year, if you don’t want it to be like the previous ones, you need to start doing things differently. Remember, don’t ever leave God out of your life, He alone knows the reason you are not dead. ‪#‎GodsWillMyLife‬ ‪#‎aristokratos‬‪#‎StephenJournal‬
