It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves. William Shakespeare.
As human beings, we are destined to fulfill our life purpose, whatever that may be. There are 2 ways to which you can take this decision –
When you will refuse to give up, and pursue your passion that will lead to your destiny.You raise your standards to pursue that fire within you.
Whatever you may choose to do, the first step begins with a decision that you take. everything that you do, whether you are successful or you fail, begins with that one decision. More than the situation, it’s our decision that determines our destiny.
So, how do you go about shaping your destiny?
>> Take appropriate action – every decision that you take will only come to pass when you take a corresponding action. Just thinking or saying will not lead you to your destiny. Different actions produce different results. If there is something in your life that you don’t like, you have to take charge of the situation, take an action and change the situation.
>> Goal setting – set a goal and follow it
>> Take actions when required – do not wait for an auspicious time to come and then take actions to shape your destiny. It’s your call and your decisions
>> You are more than the situation you are in. Everything can be controlled and you can change the situation
>> Follow through – when you take action, don’t forget to follow through the action. Decide and plan and execute
>> Don’t make short-term goals. Always think and plan from long-term perspective
>> Keep correct expectations – every dream takes time to fulfill. Do not expect success overnight or a miracle to happen.
>> Accept the failures, learn from the mistakes you made and move ahead. Don’t let the failure set you back.
>> Change – change is the only constant in life, if someone is not willing to change, they cannot move ahead in their lives
“You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.” Napoleon Hill.
>> Be mentally strong – nothing can dissuade you if you are mentally strong. All battles are first won or either lost in the mind than in reality and then the actual result comes. The mind is a very powerful tool and you can either choose to use it to have a happy successful life or can lead a life full of complaints. Everyone has problems and it’s our perspective how we deal with every situation.
>> Try meditation – meditation helps us to focus on our goals and gives us inner strength to pursue what we like. Rekindle that motivation or find the purpose of your life
These were my tips for shaping your destiny. It can be overwhelming sometimes, but rest assured – if you follow these steps – you will get where you are headed 🙂
Until next time – God Bless and stay positive!
