No iPhone, computer, car, or even a pickle jar has ever magically appeared, all these things began with a design. A design that planned every single detail of the outside packaging and all the internal workings.
The same can and should be done with your life.
“Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.” – Tony Robbins
The truth is that we have a lot of control of what happens in our lives. Many choose to blame the world, people, and circumstance for preventing them from getting what they want, while others take the stance that “nothing will get in my way.”
Those that live by this moto, are typically the most successful and content people, because they take responsibility for their own life, and know they have the power to mold it as they see fit, and they also have the strength to let go of things they cannot control, like people, the world and things.
When you lack a firm grasp on what fulfillment means to you and the actions needed to make it happen you will suffer frustration, turmoil and fleeting moments of happiness, as your life passes you by. Contentment will be temporary, as you will be waiting for finances, relationships and the world to change for you, instead of changing them yourself.
Opportunities will pass you by, and you may not even notice, as you grow more and more resentful. Instead of driving the car, you will be a helpless passenger along for the ride. Helpless, possibly hopeless and filled with discontentment and resentment.
