Take Control to Make Your Life a Success

September 1, 2008

I recently rewatched the movie ‘Miss Potter’ which is the story of Beatrix Potter – the famous children’s illustrator and author.  The challenge for Beatrix was, aside from being a woman in late Victorian Britain, was that her mother’s vision of success was not the same as hers…. being a famous author was not ‘success’ in her mother’s eyes; marrying a wealthy man was.

I’m a great believer in taking control of your life – if you don’t, someone else will or you’ll live a life of regret.  I recently stumbled across the following…. if you’re wondering whether you ‘should’ or ‘shouldn’t’ do something; read this…

‘This life is yours.  Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well.

Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly

Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature

Take the power to control your own life

No one else can do this for you

Nothing is too good for you

You deserve the best

Take the power to make your life healthy exciting and worthwhile

The time is now

Take the power to create a successful happy life’
