You are your own boss

So many times we find ourselves in a rut. The continual pressure to look good, to perform well, to compete for affection very well puts our body and mind in stress.

But somewhere down the line I realise that each day we are given a choice of taking control over our life, or of letting external things control it.

There is a brutal truth that not everything is in our hands, and that is often understood when people treat us a certain way, or when things unexpectedly happen to us. Infact, events in life rarely go exactly as planned. But unfortunately, that’s the way life works – there will always be people to tell you things you don’t agree with, things you will get disappointed about, things that will derail you from perusing your dreams, things that will literally bring you down on your knees. But our job in this world is to accept, and flexibility requires having a mind that is open to changes, open to disasters, and yet still willing to move forward. It also just happens to be that nobody can do it for you. The choice to keep moving forward, to repaint our life, to react positively to knockdowns are decisions that only we can make. So at times when life is not sunshine and rainbows, taking control, moving on with full incentives, being proactive, creating goals, making plans, being productive will all help in stepping back to regain your perspective – what you are doing and what you want to achieve.

And to achieve big things, it is important to stay positive even when life throws you offtrack. Albert Einstein once said, “We all need to see the Universe as friendly.” This is true wisdom coming from a great man who knew more about the nature of things than anyone. So it can be difficult to always stay on course, and everyone gets stuck in a funk from time to time and it’s not always easy to shake it off. But remember that you are the captain and you can navigate your world to better doors of success!

  1. I like your post, i think we should focus less on other people and what thinks, it shouldn’t effect our life, they are not going to pay our bills and to clean our house anyway, we are our own boss, and no one can tell us what we should do, or what we shouldn’t do, they can give us advice and if we like it we can use it, is good to create plans and goals, but only the hard work can make it true, thank you for letting me know about your post, very inspiring, have a productive and meaningful day❤️

  4. I love this, thank you for the motivation. I did a podcast called ‘comparison conundrum’ which is similar to this post, mainly because people try to put you down because you have not met up to their expectations, they think you’re wasting time, but everyone has a different pace and I think the most important thing as you mentioned is to keep going, at the end of the day, we are still the ones solely in charge of ourselves, so the decision is ours to make.
