To live your best life, you need to take charge of it.

by Ada Porat — 

Most people go through life half-conscious and choosing, by default, to be passive about the greatest journey they will ever make — often at the mercy of other people’s decisions. This passive attitude will lead many to lives of unhappiness.

To live your best life, you need to take charge of it. Recognize that you are the one who is responsible for what will manifest, and embrace that responsibility with enthusiasm. Start consciously choosing your attitudes, beliefs and actions, and you will build a life that empowers you.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Count your blessings daily. Doing so will keep you in a positive state of mind.
  • Surround yourself with positive, encouraging, successful people. They will pull you up, no matter what the circumstances.
  • Come to terms with the fact that there are no free lunches in life. Stop trying to get something for nothing. Use the energy to pursue your dreams instead.
  • Stay aware in the moment. It is not what happens to you; rather, it is how you respond that determines the ultimate outcome.
  • Live each day fully, as if it were your last. Treat others as if it were their last day, too.
  • Take your projects seriously and yourself lightly. Learn to laugh at yourself.
  • Realize that true happiness lies within you. Happiness comes from the quality of your relationships and the degree of control you feel you have in life. Every time you make excuses, you lose control and become unhappy.
  • The past does not determine the future. No matter how many times you have failed, remember that the next time you can succeed. If you do not believe me, read Abraham Lincoln’s biography.
  • Act in spite of fear. Fear is just an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real. When you act despite your fear, it will disappear.
  • Cast your dreams in concrete and your plans in sand. Never allow temporary setbacks to steal your dreams from you.
  • Embrace change. Change brings opportunities for growth and improvement.
  • Forgive others quickly. Being angry is like drinking poison.
  • Do not let other people’s opinions of you become your reality. Know yourself.
  • Take more chances. You will never know what you were missing in life until you dare to pursue your dreams.
  • Commitment creates opportunity. Stop talking and start doing. Think less, and act more.
  • Invest in yourself. The more you grow, the better your life will become.
  • Always expect the best. This will activate a powerful force field that attracts what you expect and focus on.
