Let me ask you some pretty intense questions. Do you think that your life predetermined? Has everything that’s happened to you so far in this life happened as it should? Does your conscious choices mean anything? Or does it matter because the outcome is already written in the stars? Is it really?
Are there truly infinite possibilities or does everything you do, every choice we make, lead to one inevitable outcome? Has the future already been written and you’re simply walking the yellow brick road? Or is “Destiny” something else entirely?
Do you have the ability to burn brighter than any of your predecessors?
I believe that you do. But then what is it that so often stops you from doing just that? One thing. The fear of failure. Often the fear of failure paralyzes you from taking the action necessary to take you from where you are to where you want to be.
Often accompanied with the fear of failure is the fear that you are incapable of greatness, and the fear of judgment and criticism when you make a decision to take charge of your destiny and shine – no matter who or what may object.
Don’t allow yourself to fear. And don’t begrudge people for trying to keep you stuck in your fears either. Those people who look down their noses at you simply have not found a way to overcome their own fears, and quite frankly your desire to step outside of your comfort zone makes them see their own fearful reflection.
On the surface, they may seem unaccepting and judgmental. That’s because they themselves are afraid. But when they go home and lay in bed, with a million and one thoughts swimming through their mind; thoughts of fear, of doubt, and insecurity.
Forge confidently ahead anyway. Listen to the battle cry of desire from your own heart that says “your destiny awaits you, be strong, be courageous, and just be you.”
Those people, even though they unconsciously will not admit it, are inspired by what you represent. A way forward. Because of this they will always remember you. They will remember the passion that burned in your eyes. They will remember the light that seemed to radiate from your very soul. And ultimately they will remember that “their” destiny has been awaiting them, calling their names patiently over the years to rise to their own greatness.
Take charge of your own destiny. You have the ability to write it with your own hand to be, do, and have what your heart desires most.
“Every individual has a place to fill in the world and it important in some respect whether he chooses to be or not.” ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
