How To Live Your Own Life

Live Your Dream

Throughout our lives we are often subject to the pressures of what our family, friends, and society expect of us. But when we live our life trying to please others, we suffer from the inner conflict between what we want to be and what others want us to be. And you will never find happiness and peace of mind by living your life for others.

The majority of the masses live lives of mediocrity. They take their place in line while they put celebrities up on pedestals as though they were some kind of special beings. We talk about them enviously and admire their spoils of victory: wealth, fame, and freedom.

For the most part, the only real difference between us and them is that they took consistent action towards working on their dreams.

Yet the Creator gave each of us the power over our own mind. Freedom to think our thoughts, and to live our lives without interference from others comes to all those who rise above the herd.

Turn Stumbling Blocks Into Stepping Stones

You too can lift yourself to great heights of achievement in any field by claiming that it will be so. A genius takes possession of their mind and directs it toward their chosen goals without permitting influences to interfere.

We all know the stories of famous people who turned hardship into opportunity. Those who overcame many obstacles to achieve wealth and fame. They became the captains of industry and forever changed the world.

But there are many more lesser-known human beings who refuse to accept defeat. They refuse to resign themselves to the vast majority who merely eke out a living in misery. For that way lies madness, disappointment, and failure.

Keep Hope Alive

Don’t settle for less than you want to be because when you do, you settle for far less than you are capable of. You have at your command more power than any computer – your mind. And with it you can claim your birthright as an incredible human being.

Take that spark of desire that burns within you and breath life into it. Read the self-help books, study your calling, chip away at the stone. That’s how masterpieces are created – one step at a time, one day at a time, one dream at a time.

If you enjoy a reasonable degree of health then you’ve got it made. Think of others like Becca Schofield and be grateful for what you do have. Then strive to improve your lot in life.

Dare To Be Crazy

In Keys to Success: The 17 Principles Of Personal Achievement {<Free Copy}, Napoleon Hill tells the story about how Walter P. Chrysler took all of his life savings, and went to an auto show to buy a brand new car.

Then he took the car home and proceeded to take it completely apart. Then he put it back together again. Needless to say, everyone thought that he was crazy, especially when he did it over and over again many times.

But Chrysler had vision. He thoroughly learned every aspect of the automobile until he was able to come up with ways of improving upon it. And nobody ever heard of those who scoffed at him, but the world will always remember Walter for his genius.

In fact, my work vehicle is a Chrysler PT Cruiser, and my leisure car is a Chrysler 300c. I only drive Chryslers because I love them, and it’s all thanks to “crazy” Walter P. Chrysler being crazy….like a fox.
