“Watch your thoughts; they become your words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.” – Frank Outlaw
In a sense, and especially if you believe in Frank Outlaw’s words above, we all have the ability to influence our own destiny. While we are not able to control everything, controlling how we react to what life presents us enables us to take some kind of control. Think about success. Successful people take action. They don’t sit back and let life happen around them. They grab the reins and take control.
If you want to live a successful life, you must first define what success means to you. Once you know what success looks like through your own eyes, then you must create more than a plan,you must formulate a way to live your life. Remember, it’s not just your habits, it is your actions, your words and your thoughts that make you the person that you are…which impacts your destiny.
“Get your thoughts right, and your actions will take you where you want to go.” – Paul Kiewiet, MAS
