I have long believed and frequently repeated the phrase, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me!”
Now I don’t mean that I have to do everything myself, or that I can’t delegate or ask others for help. I mean that I have to take responsibility for my life, my goals, and my dreams. It’s not up to somebody else to live my life, achieve my goals, or make my dreams come true. If it’s to be, it’s up to me.
I can’t just wait for a lucky break or hope that somebody else’s actions will benefit me. The opportunities this world offers are limitless, but only if I pursue them! If it’s to be, it’s up to me.
Renowned author and speaker Seth Godin puts it this way:
“The opportunity of a lifetime is to pick yourself. Quit waiting to get picked; quit waiting for someone to give you permission; quit waiting for someone to say you are officially qualified… and pick yourself.”
Pick yourself. Pick yourself as the one and only person who can truly make things happen. Pick yourself, believe in yourself, and pursue your goals and dreams! Remember… if it’s to be, it’s up to YOU!
