Donít disown your future, own it. You make your life, take it as a movie set if you like; you are director, main actor and editor. How do you want story to ensue?
Ask yourself those fundamental questions:
What am I like?
What do I want to be like?
What are my strengths?
What are my weaknesses?
What do I need?
What do I want?
Who could help me?
Want is my plan?
Know that you can achieve whatever you set your mind to. Now is an opportunity to reflect and act upon those thoughts. Changing is a means to an end, not an end in itself.
Making Positive Changes
Instead of saying "I don't know" Say "I'll find out". Instead of seeing a problem for every answer, Try seeing an answer for every problem Instead of saying "That's not my job", See what has to be done and do it. Instead of/b> making promises, Make commitments Instead of looking at what can't be done, Look at what can be done When a mistake is made, instead of saying "It wasn't my fault" Say "I was wrong". Instead of side-stepping most issues, Try making decisions Instead of saying "I'm not as bad as a lot of others", Say "I'm good, but not as good as I can be". Instead of saying "That's way it has always been done", Say "There ought to be a better way". Instead of saying "It may be possible, but it's too difficult", Say "It may be difficult but it's not impossible".
