The first requisite of a good citizen in this republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his own weight.
Doesnt it sometimes seem as though way too many people spend way too much time minding other peoples business when they could better use the time tending to their own affairs? Rather than looking for ways to make their lives the exciting, exhilarating, thrill a minute adventures they desperately long to live, these individuals foolishly fritter their lives away constantly majoring in minor things. As a result, they never seem to accomplish much of anything worthwhile.
In a world literally overrun with people looking for the easy way out, the ability to pull your own weight and do what you need to do when it needs to be done can put you light years ahead of the rest of the crowd. By taking care of business, your business, you can take yourself anywhere youve ever dreamed of going.
"I must do something" always solves more problems than "Something must be done."
The key to making things happen is to make yourself happen getting yourself moving and moving in the right direction as well. Opportunities abound for the adventurous soul who is willing to put his or her best to the test and do something now. Not sooner or later or whenever he or she gets around to it, but right this very moment.
When you consistently lay it all on the line and go for it with every ounce of energy and enthusiasm you can muster, exhibiting a DO IT NOW mentality, you set the table for success. When you acquire the healthy habit of doing something when something needs to be done, youll start doing things that you once only dreamed of doing.
Nobody can do it for you.
Like it or not, you and only you will ultimately determine the level of success you will get to enjoy in your life. Contrary to what many believe, your boss at work is not going to determine your worth nor your future. Neither will your friends, relatives or coworkers either. But have no fear because your future is in good hands, because its in your hands.
Your slogan should become, If its going to be, then its up to me. By forcefully grabbing control of your life, you can reshape, restructure and redesign your lifes direction. As Alexander Graham Bell once said, A man, as a general rule, owes very little to what he is born with a man is what he makes of himself.
The important thing is to concentrate upon what you can do by yourself, upon your own initiative.
Isnt it high time that you started taking care of your business, making your life everything you ever imagined it could be and more? Instead of forfeiting control to everyone but yourself, allowing others control of your life, why not reassert yourself and start rewriting your lifes story?
Jim Rohn said, You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. So why not take charge right this minute? By implementing the changes you desire in your life right now, you will begin taking control of your life and taking care of your own business as well.
The Bottom Line: Be sure to take care of yourself by taking care of business every day of your life.
