Quite simply, you have the power to be anything you want to be. Anything! Do not listen to anyone who tells you anything else. At the moment of birth, every single avenue of life is open to you. No path has been predetermined – you can just as easily become an astronaut, a world-famous chef, or an English professor. The wonderful and scary part of life is that you get to make the call.
As you get older, certain fields or opportunities may attract you more than others. Your focus in life may start to narrow or change, and that is perfectly normal. Many childhood dreams of becoming a firefighter or police officer may be redirected into different career paths. As people grow and develop, they learn more about what they want to do and their long-term interests. So in general, changing your career focus is beneficial because it usually comes out of greater self-knowledge. The most important thing to do is to pursue something that makes you happy. As long as you have that down, the specifics about your job situation do not matter.
With each new opportunity, you learn more about yourself and your interests. And what would life be without opportunity? Opportunities allow you to grow and blossom as a person. It is a positive feedback loop – taking advantage of new opportunities gives rise to new possibilities, which eventually open up new opportunities.
In America, your class, age, gender, religious and/or political persuasion, race or ethnicity, and sexual orientation do not matter. You can be whoever you want to be! There is an infinite range of possibilities open to you. With the right attitude, any obstacle can be surmounted. So if you want to do or be something, go for it! You’ll never know unless you try. And if you don’t at least try, the regret could haunt you for years to come.
Once you’ve made up your mind, write down or mentally establish your goals, both long-term and short-term. Work on your attitude until you are as focused, disciplined, committed, dedicated, and hard-working as possible. With such an attitude and work ethic, it is surely only a matter of time before you attain your goal and become whatever you desire to become. You are the one in charge, and you get to decide what you want to have happen! You are the only one who makes the call.
Nothing will be able to get in your way unless you allow things to get in your way. We must remember that there are no limitations in life except for the ones we make for ourselves. Try not to accept limits for yourself. You are capable of so much, and do not let anyone tell you otherwise.
Brace yourself, for the road ahead will not always be easy. The things in life worth having never are. Instead of worrying about the possible difficulties lying ahead, try to remember that these bumps in the road are nothing but challenges that will serve to help you achieve your outcome and goal. Many challenges are actually opportunities in disguise. They test the strength of your convictions and reveal your true character.
With the right mindset, every knock on your journey is actually a boost. Everything that happens on your path through life happens for your benefit. You choose how you view situations and what kinds of benefits you accrue from both challenges and opportunities. Remember that both possibility and impossibility are labels that you attach to situations.
The horizon of impossibility is constantly shifting. One hundred years ago, no one could have imagined that people would be able to explore space or use technology to communicate with people from around the world. Who knows what miraculous inventions will seem commonplace a hundred years from now? There is no “possible” or “impossible” label that can be objectively attached to an idea or action; you determine if a thing for you is possible or impossible. You must make conscious choices and learn the power of belief.
If you can conceive of something and believe in it, then you can achieve it. It is that simple. Your belief and self-confidence can work wonders. You can even be an inspiration for others to follow and believe in!
Only your belief matters at the end of the day. If others undercut your beliefs and dreams, pay them no heed. You do not need naysayers. Trust in yourself and the power of your convictions. Others will respect the strength of your beliefs and may even come to sympathize with them.
The secret to having others to believe in you and your dreams is for you to believe in your dreams and goals in life. People simply give you back what you project outwardly. When you believe in yourself, others too will believe in you in accordance to the law of attraction.
So, make up your mind to become what you desire to become, whatever it may be. Whether it is a lawyer, doctor, judge, politician, spiritual leader, astronaut, engineer, CEO, herbalist, naturopathic doctor, college professor, actor or actress, martial arts expert, entrepreneur, millionaire businessman or woman, senator, congressman or woman, city mayor, state governor, etc. you can become it! Take this message to heart and go out there and pursue your dreams.
Aim for the stars and dream big.
