Episode #110 – Learn to Take Control of Your Life and Be Happy
When you feel like you’re losing it, what is it you do to take control of what you’re going through? Living in such a fast pace society, it’s easy to lose sight of the things that truly matter. If so, it’s important that you take a minute, a deep breath, allowing yourself to reset.
Taking a look in the mirror makes all the difference. Sometimes, ask yourself, “Is what I’m doing something I want, or, am I being conditioned to do so?
The truth of it all is, even those that are intentional find it hard to manage. It’s evident that it isn’t easy, but living a happy life requires you to take control. Life is a journey worth striving to live. But the quality of life we choose relies on the decisions we make.
If you want to take control of your life and seek answers, you’re on the right track. It’s always beneficial to reflect on where we are so that you take control as the captain. Because as a captain of your ship, you decide your destination.
In order to take control of your life, there are some really important questions that need your answering. One thing is for sure, there is no running from the truth. This very truth, you must be willing to address head-on.
Happiness is true freedom. Although a choice, a responsibility comes along with it. That’s because your choices today dictate what your tomorrow will be. Among all things, never fail to take care of yourself.
Love for Self Among All
You are more than worthy of love. I said it. There is never an obligation to accept the views and opinions of others, as your own. Who cares what people think. The best way to take control of your life, you must tap into the source, love for self.
Sad to say, very few understand what loving themselves is about. We’re taught to love others and to be mindful of how we treat them. But rarely are we told to take care of the captain of our ship.
In such an outer sourced world, we forget that the work needed is inner. It all starts from the inside. Although we are taught how to treat others, we must go back to the fundamentals. And that’s loving thyself before reflecting that love onto anyone else. That’s because, without loving yourself, it’s hard to truly know what love really is.
After all, if you don’t feel it, how can you deal it? It’s by addressing the source you take control of your life. That is how a strong foundation is built, one that will endure the test of time. If you don’t love yourself, how can you be sure to love another person?
When you love who you are, you leave no room for hate. That’s because the feeling of love creates an attraction for love. Once you get that feelin, it’s hard to show up any other way. You don’t envy, you celebrate the wins of others. So in order to take that control, honesty is necessary. Are you truly loving yourself enough to navigate your ship?
Love not only creates positive vibes but also boosts your confidence. With this confidence, you shine.
What’s Your Purpose?
We live to truly live, not to exist. Therefore, understanding why you’re here only gives you something more to live for. Life gives you an opportunity while your purpose allows you to exploit it. Without purpose, how do you know which door to walk through, out of what’s presented?
The truth is, there will be many opportunities. But to take control of what’s given you have to know where it takes you. Where it takes you only matters if you already know where it is you want to go.
Too many of us fail to take control of our lives. That’s because we like clarity. It’s hard to see where you’re going if you haven’t decided where to go. Once that is in place, you’re able to determine which path will lead you there.
