What does it Mean to Own Your Life
To understand what it means to own your life, analyse by yourself, this statement Don Faila makes. “When you subtract out the sleeping time, commuting time, working time and the things you have to do each day of your life, most people don’t have more than two or three hours a day to do what they would like to do: and then, would they have the money to do it?”
Depending on which angle you want to tackle this, you will have varying responses. But the underlying factor is that you are in control of the vehicle that is moving in the direction of your destiny. This means that, you can choose to be happy, sad, loving, hating, etc all at will at any particular moment. For example, IF YOU HEARD A BAD NEWS AND WERE CRYING, YOU COULD DECIDE TO BE HAPPY AND SWITCH MOODS IMMEDIATELY. Now, this is extreme but that is what it means to own your life. It means that you have the ability to control, no not to control but to DETERMINE your emotion.
If you can determine your emotions which you can, why then would you choose to allow a negative painful emotion in your life?
The next thing it means to own your life is that you can choose where you want to live, what you want to eat and what clothes you would wear without looking at the price tag.
This is what it means NOT to own your life. When you can tell a lie under pressure, or give explanations to justify what you have done for fear of punishment or for a gain of reward.
Now consider this! Can you be said to presently own your life? If you cannot wake up at the time you want to, work at your goals according to your schedule in order to achieve them, and even decide how your day goes, think again about the control you have on your life.
To what extent does your money have power over you? You can determine that you are in charge of your own life depending on your response if you lost every dime have made. Or if you experienced what some people will call a mishap. Would you accept that it is part of life, then you wake up and start all over or you will sit there languishing in pain?
Can you go where you want to go, or acquire what you want to or do what you like to, and would you have the money to do it?
The extent to which money or circumstances influences your life is a great indicator of the extent to which you are in control of your destiny.
No matter where you stand, you can own your life by the decision (s) you take now – The decision to change your situation.
