Our Future Is In Our Own Hands
"You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands - your own." - Mark Victor Hansen

What quality of life do we really have, without having any goals to aim for? What quality of life do we really have, without taking action to achieve the goals we set? The answer to both those questions is the same; a poor one. Without setting goals, and then working hard to actually achieve them, we are not truly living at all, just merely existing. Life is about happiness, satisfaction, and fulfillment, as after all, we are here on borrowed time. Each day that we fail to set goals designed to enhance our own life, but also to uplift and serve others, becomes another day wasted, as too the days that we fail to apply ourselves to the actions that are working towards those goals. Although we have no insight to the time we are blessed to have on this Earth, it doesn't excuse us from planning for our future, and our decisions and actions should always revolve around making that future as awesome as possible. The truth is, our future is in our own hands. How our future pans out comes back to all the decisions we are making, and the actions we are taking, right now. If we have devised our goals, have clear direction, and are in the process of working towards those goals, likely our future continues to become brighter every day we do so. However, if we are just sitting back, wishing, wanting, and expecting life just to deliver us the happiness, success, and prosperity, we desire so greatly, our future is becoming more and more grim by the day. The future will provide us with nothing more than regret, unhappiness, and misery, and the worst part to this is, there's no second chances. The time for action is now!

The journey towards achieving our goals is brutal, there's no sugar coating it. The greater the goal, the greater the challenges we need to overcome to get there. As much as this journey will leave us to face failures, adversities, challenges, and criticism, by remaining committed, patient, resilient, and perseverant, we will not only achieve these goals, but we will grow, develop, and mature, in the process. The journey towards achieving our goals has the power to define our attitude, our personality, our behavior, and our character. No one ever said such a journey would be easy, but considering the fate of our future is on the line, it's well worth the pain, effort, hard work, patience and commitment. Pursuing our goals is about positively transforming our lives, and to do so, it takes courage. It's about taking risks, making some difficult decisions, stepping out of our comfort zone, facing up to the criticism and judgement of others, engaging in some tedious and demanding actions, and financially investing in our future, but such things are necessary. Our day of success will be sweeter than what we can ever imagine, because we will be standing there in awe of ourselves, for what we had to overcome, what pain we endured, what sacrifices we made, what effort we applied, and how patient we remained. It will be a moment of complete glory and insurmountable satisfaction. To get there, start with the basics in creating your goals, and being clear with them, but start today. They need to genuinely drive you, and inspire you, to a point where you will be prepared to repel any failures or challenges that attempt to prevent you from achieving them. Then, take action. Make some difficult decisions, make some changes, take some risks, but start engaging in those actions immediately. Commit to these actions every single day, and never stray from that focus on your goals. Your future is in your own hands, and your future self is depending on you to create happiness, satisfaction, fulfillment, success, and prosperity, starting now!
