Today is September 1, 2013. It’s the first day of a new month.
Today I am reminded of these important truths that I want to share with you.
No one else is in charge of your life except you.
If you are tempted to wait and see what happens, don’t. Take action and be a part of your own destiny.
No one else can choose your happiness for you.
You have to make that choice every day. If you give up the right to be happy, life will give you hundreds and thousands of reasons to be upset.
No one else can manage your time as well as you can.
You need to evaluate what you’re doing with your time, and make adjustments if need be. Sometimes we get in the habit of doing some things every day that don’t really move us forward. If you’re worried about your own use of time, write down everything you do in a day. Review it and then make changes. The daily things in life create our lifetime habits. Today matters!
No one else can help you find love.
It’s up to you to set standards for your relationships, and then stick to them. Remember you always have a choice about the relationships you’re in. Don’t ever forget that.
No one else can make you financially responsible or well off.
You have to decide to change your spending and saving habits yourself. You can and you will be financially sound if you make the daily commitment to educate yourself and change your spending habits.
No one else can change your life.
You need to change it for yourself. So today’s challenge is for you to change one thing for the better and then stick with that choice tomorrow, and the day after, and the next day too.
