Wouldn’t it be great if there was a self determination button. You see it sparkling out there in front of you. You reach out and hit the button, and just like magic – you become self determined and ready to take charge of your life.
Well, guess what? There is one. More of a metaphorical button than a physical one, but it’s still real. And it works too.
Self determination begins when you begin asking questions for yourself. Of yourself, of others. And once you get the answers, you act on them. You don’t wait for someone else. YOU make it happen.
So push the button, ask that first question. Here’s a good question to start off with: Do I feel good about myself and where I am in my life? Another good question: What can I do about it?
“There will always be those who support you
and those who don’t – more than a few,
but the one person in your life
you should know you can count on
is most emphatically – you.”
