Taking Charge of a Memorable Life
By Hall-of-Fame Motivational Keynote Speaker Connie Podesta
Coincidence. Luck. Karma. Fate. Chance. Words tossed around A LOT lately, right? Sometimes as excuses for bad choices, right? Sometimes heard from those who believe that life is just lobbing lemons at them and there’s no recipe for lemonade. And sometimes, the foundation for lives lived unfulfilled and unhappy because people resign themselves to the fact that ‘that’s just the way life is.”
No. The truth is you can feel POWERLESS, and take on the ‘life’s unfair’ attitude, or you can feel POWERFUL by actively, and passionately ACTING rather than REACTING to every situation and person you come across. “But Connie, that’s a lot of responsibility.” Sure it is. A LOT. It means YOU have to take ownership of your circumstance. You’ve got to take charge of your health, well-being, self-esteem, and security. YOU have to be the one to LET GO of what’s not working and look for what does. And YOU have to take the wheel in your own life and steer yourself in the directions that will get you where you want to go.
Is it always easy? No. But it is always worth it. Because turning over the keys to your own joy, success, and happiness to someone else is not the life you were meant to lead. Everyone single one of us possesses the talents, characteristics, tools, and attributes that give us everything we need to lead a happy and memorable life. Sometimes we just have to get out of our own way, take our foot off the brakes, and make the CHOICES to find the solutions.
I challenge you to write down three things in your life currently that you can change your perspective and the choices you make about them for the positive.
