There are two ways to live your life: you’re pushed into situations by default or you have a vision and design your life accordingly! When you read the biographies of successful people, you’ll find that they all had an underlying dream. They may not have been aware of it but it drove them towards their life goal.
In my case, I wanted to become a doctor as a young woman. My parents were against it and my dream went underground. Yet my focus in life was always concerned with how to improve my own as well as other people’s health. I ended up an alternative practitioner using non-invasive and regenerative modalities to help people get and stay well. I have fulfilled my dream!
Many people have dreams and goals but they don’t consider pursuing them because their minds or people talk them out of their desires: you’re too old, too young, too uneducated, too and so on. You fill in the reasons. It’s the law of cause and effect – I can’t do something because…
If you don’t like what you’ve created in your life so far, you can’t undo it. But you can stop and make some changes – provided you have the necessary awareness and skills to do so. Don’t live life by default but rather by design! Create a vision or goal which inspires you to get up in the morning with purpose.
You may encounter many challenges which force you to grow but in hindsight you realize they were gifts which made you stronger. They will be documented in the pages of your own memoir.
