Questions to consider:
1. If you were your own boss - would you ever worry about getting fired?
2. If you were your own boss - would you ever worry about being "laid off"?
3. If you were your own boss - would you take the day off for your birthday? spouses birthday? your child's birthday?
4. If you were your own boss - would you be happy?
Yes, I understand that, one thing that must be taken into consideration, is the self-discipline that must exist in order for one to function as their own boss. But, let's worry about THAT task when we get to it, o.k.?
Today, we're talking about the need each of us have to "Take Control of Your OWN Destiny!" - and this can take on many different forms in our lives.
But, here is the bottom line - you will never live the life of your dreams on YOUR terms until you take control of your own destiny!
Yes, I know that you may absolutely LOVE your job! But, let me ask you this - do you have to put in a request for vacation as soon as possible once the calendar turns over into the new year? Regardless of how much you love your job, is there a possibility that you could LOSE that job?
...you could still work at that job that you love so much and STILL put things into practice that you control your own destiny?
Here's what I mean - what if you could set yourself up to where even if you LOST that job you'd still be alright financially and emotionally?
What if you could control your destiny to the point that, although the job you would really enjoy working at doesn't pay as much as you really need it to, you could take it anyway? And not worry about the level of pay?
What if you could live wherever you want - not based on a job, but simply based on the fact that you LIKE the area?
Controlling your own destiny is about CHOICES! The more you control your own destiny, the more choices you have!
Too many of us have fallen into the trap of thinking "this is just the way it is" and we go through our lives like cattle being herded here and there with no direction of our own.
Wouldn't you agree?
So what are YOU going to do about it?
Be sure to listen to today's podcast for more thoughts on this and then be sure to listen again on Monday and read this blog on Monday as I delve deeper into this thought process in part 2 of this discussion, "Take Control of Your OWN Destiny!"
Until then - "Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
