You Control Your Destiny

In these changing times, people need to realize each one of us is in
control of our individual life. Over the past several decades many have
turned control of their destiny over to either the government, big
business or a union.

Many times this has seemed to make good economic sense, much has been
provided to us by working for a large company or the government and
having all our economic needs satisfied with little conscious thought on
our part.

The downside is this has created a sense of entitlement where people begin
to think they deserve everything in life just because they exist. People
believe that work isn’t necessary and effort doesn’t need to be put
forth to gain the fruits of our labor.

In most states it is illegal to feed wild animals because by doing so the
animal becomes dependent on humans and they forget how to fend for
themselves. When the human involvement ends, the animal thus can starve
to death. Many Americans have become like those wild animals, they have
become so dependent on others for their survival that when the gravy
trains ends they no longer know how to make it on their own.

We now blame government for all our problems, and rightfully so,
government has and always will fail us. We need to remember who voted
for these people and who put them into office. We can only blame
ourselves for the actions of congress and the president. Most often
people are elected based on how much “free stuff” they are going to hand
out once elected. The “stuff” isn’t free, someone is paying for it.

As a result of straying from our basic instincts,we  Americans have
become victims of our own success. We as a people need to take back our
power, we are the only ones who can successfully control our destiny and
give us the life we want, no one can do it for us.

As one travels through life, you can’t but help to realize you have
created your life by the decisions you have made. You are the author of
you life. You are a magnet, you attract the things , people, ideas, and
circumstances to you that resonate at the same vibrational rate as you

Having said that, one needs to realize, however hard it may be, you are
responsible for everything you have experienced, either on a conscious
or subconscious level. Once one comes to terms with that reality, it
becomes apparent you have the ability to change your life.

Like attracts like, our “magnet” only attracts to us like thoughts and
actions, as we think we become, change your thinking and your life will
change. You don’t make this happen, you just let it happen.The magnet
doesn’t do anything, it just is.

We live in the greatest country ever know to man,(at least in this
millennium,)  we have all the tools necessary to create whatever life
we desire, based upon our abilities and ambitions. The only ingredient
missing is our realizing that each one is in control of their own  life,
we can shape it as we want, and it is up to no one but ourselves to
decide how we want to live.
