rent or own?

Rent or Own Cropped

Which path are you creating?

In one way or another, we’ve all allowed ourselves to believe we are a product of our circumstance. Whether it’s our home life, our self-esteem, a crummy job or a lack of resources; we subscribe to the notion that things happen to us and not for us so as to justify and understand why we don’t have what we want in life. The idiomatic phrases, “it is what it is”, “c’est la vie”, and “what can you do?” are all calling cards of the passive, if not defeated, observer.

We don’t have to look far to answer the “what can you do?” question. The answer? “Anything you want”. How many “nothing to something” stories do we all know? Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Chris Gardner and Richard Branson are only but a few. The most amazing thing is that there are way more “real” stories of people that we never hear about. People that are doing exceptional things every day of their lives just by being their true self, owning their life and trusting in Love. These are the people, exactly like you and I, that have chosen to be the best version of themselves whether they’re the weekly soup kitchen volunteer, the marathon runner, the person at work that always has a smile for you or simply someone that Loves the life they’ve created for themselves.

“I’m not good enough, I’m too scared, I’m not strong enough or I don’t have enough money” just doesn’t work. Too many people no different from you and I have proven it all wrong time and time again.

You create your life. It’s yours to own.

It’s time we stopped buying external excuses and started owning our lives. Placing blame on another person or a circumstance in our life immediately forfeits our ability to shape our path. It tells our brains, “hey, we don’t have any control over this, so why bother?” It makes us believe that, because the obstacle in our way is external, we’re stuck. But, the truth is, you’re never stuck. You always have the ability to do something about everything in your life. You choose your response. You choose your behavior. You choose your attitude. And, the biggest choice of all; you choose whether you trust Love or hang onto fear.

The great thing about you, your life and all your “circumstances”, is that you’re the common denominator. You are what’s always part of the equation to your success and the even more pertinent, didactic successes that disguise themselves as failures. If there’s anything this tells us, it’s that we do have the ability to shape what’s in front of us.

If you look within, you will never be without.

We all have Love inside of us. We’ve all made that choice already. The only call we need to answer is, when? With Love, you will never go wrong. You will never fail. Nothing will ever happen that your life doesn’t require. Shed the fear and allow Love to help you own your life. Let Love show you who you can be.

be Love.

    We often hear that life is not easy, and that is true and it is never easy for anyone. The only difference, someone uses as an excuse for not getting whatever they want; but the other group chose to stick with their goal and fight to get what they want. Those winners possess confidence and love deep inside of their heart. Some people did give a try but failed in the 1st attempt and started to using excuse. Never give up, because if you give up, all the people who love and support you will give up on you as well. I have a list of things that I don't want to hear (but it is completely ok for my friends to say), and some of them are "no worries, it is what it is", "just let it happen naturally" or "I am sure everything will fall into the right places". They are true only if you don't exercise any control over your life. If there is something I want it badly, I will try my best to fight and get it; even if it doesn't work out in the end, at least I have tried; I know I will feel regretful if I don't devote 100%. Thanks and take care!

    You can never fail when you are true with your heart. On the surface, things may appear as failure, but we are always learning something. Even if something doesn't work out as we had hoped and we decide to walk away from whatever it is, we still learn that whatever it was, wasn't ideal for us. Had we never attempted, we would never know. We can create what we truly want and what truly embodies who we are and what will make us happy. Sometimes, we don't exactly know what the truthful answer is and maybe we think it's money or power or popularity. When we don't attain those aspirations, we view it as "failure" but what it really is, is our true self telling us that this is not what we really need. We need something else, something more. Regardless of if something is a "success" or a "failure" as long as you are in your heart and being Love, you are never giving up. be Love.
