The Daily Man-Up

You are where you’re supposed to be.

At this very moment, you are where you’re supposed to be. No matter your age, your past, or your present, this can be a new starting point if you choose it to be so. To understand this you have to let go of the natural human desire to compare. You can’t compare your life to that of another. They’re where they’re supposed to be and you are where you’re supposed to be. It is. “It” cannot change.

To live a great life as you define it you have to love where you are in life. You have to see it as both a blessing and a challenge. There are too many things to count that you can be grateful for, but this doesn’t mean you should settle. Life isn’t static, nor is your journey through it.

Where you end up isn’t going to be where you are, but it’s up to you if you end up a better person, a stronger man, a tougher man, a more successful man, or if you regress, or if you simply remain the same. Don’t wish you were somewhere else living the life of someone else. This is your life. Be thankful for where you are then work on making things better, becoming better.

You’ll end up where you deserve to end up.

When where you end up in life isn’t dependent on extenuating circumstances or outward entities, things, your boss, the markets, your teachers or your parents, you’re given complete control over your fate. The reality is that this is the only way for a man who wants to make something of himself.

Those that believe their lives are decided by where they’re born, the limitations or obstacles they’ve been given, are relegated to a life within the confines of a predetermined fate. The truth is, your truth depends on your outlook on life and your actions. If you truly believe that you have control over where you end up in life you’re going to do everything within your power to end up as the man you want to be, living the life you want to live.

Those who aren’t of this belief won’t work as hard, they won’t take the same risks and they won’t have the same energy. Just like we don’t take the same care in spending someone else’s money, we won’t take the same care and passion living a life that we don’t feel is completely under our control.

How you view the world can either give you power or take it away. The beauty is that you have the power to choose how you view the world and your role in it. Bad things will happen to you, things that you didn’t at all deserve, but how you choose to react, whether you fight or lie down in defeat, will determine where you end up and who you become. Choose how you react with courage.
