You do not live each day just to see what it holds for you, but to create your reality. Whether you realize it or not, every minute and every moment of your life you spend creating who you are and what you are becoming. All of your actions and your thoughts construct the substance of your life. In other words, things don’t just happen. You happen. Your choices, your ideas, your beliefs, your determination – they all add up. They have everything to do with your past, your present, and your future. Good or bad, it is the reality you have created, the ultimate summation of all you have sown and are sowing. If you want a new reality, you must change it. No one else can do it for you. Proverbs 23:7 says, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” To change your reality, you decide who it is you want to be, where it is you want to go, and what it is you want to happen. Then, you must understand and believe that everything around you is a part of this process. Invariably, your reality will only be what you choose and truly believe. If that is greatness, then greatness. If defeat, then defeat. Either way, your reality will be a reflection of your thinking and your orientation to life. This is a universal truth, an ageless principle. That is, to succeed or fail, to thrive or deteriorate. It is a reality that is entirely up to you to decide….. and to create.
