“People with honorary awards are looked upon with disfavor. Would you let an honorary mechanic fix your brand new Mercedes?” - Neil Simon

When you graduate from life with your final certificate that is etched in stone, what will it say?

Were you an honorary participant of life or did you step out and make it happen regardless of present circumstances?

It’s so easy to blame anything and everything for ones lot in life.

We are programmed to focus on the one that went sideways, the one that got away from us, the one that was disastrous and so on.

Rationalizations and excuses are plentiful and can be found anywhere.

We are all creators and unfortunately some of us stopped creating our lives years ago.

The upside of the coin is that you can begin anew any time and any place.

Focusing on past events, misfortunes and failures only strengthens the perceived power that it has over your life.

Stop driving in reverse.

Besides sooner or later you will develop a kinked neck.

Begin anew by not allowing present circumstances to dominate and control your thinking, your present moment happiness, or your decision-making.

Your X factor that resides in your psychological house is always lurking and waiting for any opportunity to pounce on you.

Your X factor is that controlling, dictatorial, manipulative and scheming psychological mechanism in everyone’s personality that prevents you from nurturing what you really want to do with your life.

 However, awareness provides you with that sixth sense that leads and guides you towards intelligent and proactive decisions.

You’ve heard this many times in various formats but here is one.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.” - Bill Keane

So, go out and create your life so you have a say in what might be etched on that final certificate.

If you do, it won’t be an honorary one.
