It's Your Life - Take control

Updated on January 28, 2018

Where will you go


Where to start?

You want to improve your life, but where do you start? After all, if you're like me you'd like to just be reborn and begin all over again. But since it's a little too late for that, you must choose a starting point. But how?

One way to begin is to use the 'list' method also called brainstorming. This is done by simply taking a piece of paper and writing down everything you want to change or add to in your life. These include; money, friends, homes,serenity, environment, and so on. Then take a break and come back in a few days and add to or delete from your list.

When you have finished your list , go through it and decide what is the most important thing on the list. THAT IS YOUR BEGINNING.

Then you simply decide how you are going to do that one thing. Do your research.

It's not difficult!

Taking control of your life isn't really all that hard. you just have to define what it is you want, decide how badly you want it. And make a plan!

Of course making a plan isn't simple! A real plan involves deciding what you want, And prioritizing. Then you have to determine what steps need to be taken- in reverse order! Once you get to a step that you can do, do it now!

You can do this


Visualize Your New Life.

Once you decide what your new life is going to be you need to see it! Take some quiet time and think what your new is going to be like. Take some notes! Doodle yourself in your new life. Believe it is real. Your new life is coming!

I like to post pictures of me new-to-be house, car, and swimming pool! I put them everywhere so I will see them several times a day! I even have a collage over my bed!

You can do it!

There are so many things we want to change in our lives Some times it's difficult to start.. Begin with the small things. They are the easiest. Remember.."one step at a time".

I like to make a daily to-do list. I usually keep it down to five things, and at least two of these have to be towards my current goal. Of course, you will choose your own system. The main thing is to TAKE ACTION!

Are you happy with your life

See results

Life Is What You Make It

Life is what you make of it. Now is the time to make it more of what you want. Remember life doesn't change over nite. Patience is the key here. As long as you are taking action, you are on your way. An old Chinese proverb says "The journey of a thousand miles begins with but the first step"!
