What are you leaving to chance?

May2014chance-255282_1280I still remember my mother, all five feet and four inches of her with the feistiest attitude always telling me, “Don’t continue to just talk about it, do it.”

Where does all this start? At this point, hopefully the concept is very clear and concise. What we do or don’t do today clearly will define our tomorrow. Winning in life is not by chance. People who win in this life do it on purpose because of one very key and vital fact – they took the initiative to make things happen. It matters not where you come from, your social status, or the background that you have. If you take initiative, you can win. People that win take a vested interest in making sure that their success is not left up to chance. It was once said that being casual about life will get you absolutely nowhere. In fact, those who are casual about life usually end up becoming casualties of this life. That simply means that either you take an aggressive approach to control your life, or life will control and potentially destroy you. If you aren’t careful, life will take an imaginary rope, wrap it around you, and pull you in whatever direction it desires. The idea here is to take that same imaginary rope off of you, wrap it around life, and then YOU start to do the pulling. It is imperative that you take the initiative and exercise your authority to move your life into whatever successful path you desire.

The first step to taking initiative is very simple, and that is to make a quality decision to do so. Quality decisions are those choices that are made that will produce the results you want. It is a decision that has been well thought out and all possible outcomes of that decision have been considered.
