    What is one thing you were previously sure of in your life that you now question?

    Like a puzzle in which you discovered some pieces actually didn't fit!

    Maybe a new perspective opened up to you or you had an experience or revelation that urged you to reconsider your former views.  What changed your perspective and why?

    I used to swear that everything happened for a reason. I thought that I had no control over outcomes and what those outcomes in fact created.  However, now I believe that we need to MAKE things happen.  We can just sit around and let life hit us, we need to hit life and make sure we become the best we can be by creating opportunities for ourselves instead of waiting for opportunities to come to us!

      I really agree with the importance of recognizing that we are participants in creating our destiny and in fact, have a lot of power over the direction we go.  I'm all about people being empowered so enjoy this answer!  Thanks for participating.  :-)

    The only things certain are death and taxes. All else requires an open mind.

      I think that saying is so strange that taxes is in the real of absolute certainty!  Speaking of which--I have to do mine...

    I grew up in the 1930's 40's and 50's - I was taught that if you behave yourself, work hard, and be a good citizen everything would be fine.  Turns out that didn't work.  You have to be pro-active and make things happen.  I cringe at anyone saying to me "have a nice day" - it should be "make a nice day."

      Make a nice day--yes!  I so agree.  Make a nice weekend for yourself.  :-)

    I was going to wait a while before going back to school now that I'm out the army, but after some recent configuring I have decided screw it: it's now or never.

    I used to think that I am the best. But now I find there is always a better than the best.

    My goals to become rich.

    The things of this world are becoming less and less important to me.

    I can see using great wealth, but having it and being identified with it, seems so unimportant to me any more.
