Circumstances

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.” – George Bernard Shaw, Mrs. Warren’s Profession

Look around at your life. Where are you? Are you where you want to be?

Think ten years ahead. Are you still there? Do you want something else? To be somewhere else?

What are you doing today to move towards that 10-year vision?

Every decision you make reflects your values and beliefs. Every decision changes your life, in big and small ways. Decisions change circumstances and outcomes, in far greater ways than genetics, inborn talent, physical ability, mental acuity, or parental support or neglect. In fact, people with more talent than you have wasted it and people with less ability than you have done far more with their lives.

What circumstances are you making today? When is today THE day?
