You may not be able to control everything that happens to you in life, but what you can control is far more powerful than any circumstance, outcome, or other person’s view. You have the ability to decide what kind of life you wish to live. You are not a victim of bad luck, terrible circumstances, or a bad childhood. Instead, you can take charge of your life and design it the way you want it to be.

You have complete control over where your thoughts go, how you speak, and how you treat yourself and others. Each of us has the ability to select what we absorb and release. What we share, maintain, and discard are all decisions we make in the end.

You have complete control over the attitude you want to adopt in life. The way you handle issues, failures, and irritated people reveals a lot about you. Choosing to be cheerful, caring, and determined can be the difference between feeling sorry for yourself and enjoying the life you’ve always wanted.

It is entirely up to us how long we remain angry and how long we wait to reach for hope, when we say yes and when we say no, and how long we simply speak what others want to hear. It all starts with a decision to look at the world with gratitude or hatred.

The world’s most successful people aren’t defined by their failures. Instead, their success defines them. However, they all had one thing in common: they all failed multiple times before getting it right. If you haven’t had any failures, you probably haven’t taken any chances. Choose to learn from your mistakes and use them as motivation to keep going until you succeed.
