“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s.
And guess what they might have planned for you? Not much.”

— Jim Rohn, Motivational Speaker

Going with the flow has become a way of life. We don’t make waves. And we accept come what may. And where are we? Where does that get us?

One day we realize that we missed an opportunity for a better job or a satisfying life. Do we, can we change the course we’re on?

YES! It’s never too late to change your life. But, the catch is, YOU have to WANT a different life. But how?


Your attitude has a lot with what you can accomplish. If you believe that you don’t deserve better, then, you won’t get better. If you feel that you should have more – then you have to go after it.

You have to believe in yourself and your ability to change the way you are living.

That’s not always easy. You may have to find new friends. You current friends will see your change and may not want you to better yourself. This calls for strength and determination. Not easy. Your choice – improve your situation or stay in your status quo.


Having gratitude may sound strange if you are not happy with your current situation, but, you should be grateful. Grateful that you are recognizing that you can and will have a better life. Be grateful for things that didn’t work out – they showed you what you shouldn’t be doing.

Too often we get stuck or feel that we are stuck in our current place and that there is no getting out of it. Not true! If you recognize that you want to be in a better place, you have taken the first step. Now is the time to reach for the next opportunity. Fearful of failure? Let’s try grateful of the chance. Now go and do it!


Confidence is often the hardest thing that we need to cultivate. Too often confidence is linked to being cocky or conceited. But it isn’t. Having confidence means knowing what you are capable of. Knowing that you have the skills or can develop them in order to make yourself a better life.

But, what if we fail? Ah, yes, but what if you succeed? A lot of times we lack confidence because we feel that others are going to judge us. Does it really matter what they think if you are happy with you?

This is about you. This is about your life. This is about your personal aspirations. Let them live with “not much” because we have our idea of a great life. And we have the means to achieve it!
