This is an often posed question, but a valid one. Do you choose success or does success choose you?
I think every bit of success is self determined. It’s totally up to you how far you go in life. Bill Gates started with literally nothing. So if he can do it – you can do it too. Check out Oprah, you can totally do what your dreams lead you to.
Your circumstances may define you at this moment, but it doesn’t always have to be that way. You may be in the worst spot you’ve ever been in and never felt so bad about you in all your life. But I’m here to tell you that your day will come and you will have that opportunity to shine. Will you take it?
That decision is up to you. I feel that perception plays a big part in how we see the world and how the world sees us and the minute you stop worrying about what other people think of you – that is the moment you become truly free from repression.
Dare to think for yourself, dream for yourself, want for yourself and yearn to see your name in bright lights. If your dream is something that other people have realized before you – even better, then you have model to follow. A working model.
The trick is recognizing criticism as just that – criticism and nothing personal.
Don’t get in your own way getting caught up in what people think of you – worry about the skills you offer the world – what do you bring to the table?
Do you choose success or does success choose you? What do you think?
I don’t do this much anymore but I can’t resist adding a video to this post…enjoy!
