Wherever you are, you are there because of your habits. Why? Well, the secret of your future is buried in your daily routine and today is the reality you created yesterday. If your life is not where you want to be, look deep within, for you were a major participant in its creation.
Don’t like your life? Change it! As the saying goes, you are not a plant. You no doubt have obstacles and troubles, we all do to greater or lesser extent. No matter, your greatest resource is you; the point of power is centered within you. No one is going to rescue you and if they did, most likely it’s a one off and the most likely result is that you would grow weaker and more dependent, not stronger or more resilient.
You want a better, greater life? Study those who have achieved your dreams in a principled, sustainable manner and then emulate them, day in and day out. Beware the flashy personas whose only success is outer, whose inner life, family and spiritual life, does not reflect the same degree of alleged success. For what doeth it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his own soul?
