Take Charge of Your Life (Or It Will Take Charge of You)

Opinion: I am a person who believes that a lot of what happens to a person in their life is the result of decisions that they have made.
-Philip "Sharp Skills" Jacobs

Your locus of control level, meaning the degree to which you agree with the opinion above, will shade how you interpret this blog post. With that said, lets begin.

Life is full of external circumstances that are out of our control. Yet we can control how we react to these circumstances and what we let them shape us into. Notice I said "control", we do have a great degree of power in how our lives turn out. Whether disadvantaged or privileged, black or white, tall or short, rich or poor, this is a common gift that the Almighty has blessed us with,the gift of pro activity. We can be the catalyst in our own lives that helps us to experience all life has to offer, better yet all we have to offer (potential wise). But we must make a conscience effort to be this (day in and day out). Life can be full of hardships, turmoil, pain, and suffering. Yet we do not have to be the victim of it. I personally believe and have become convinced that through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, persistence, and dedication we can all have a high quality of life. Your definition of a high quality of life may differ from mine, but that is irrelevant. As long as you are in a place where you are at peace, you have achieved the high life.

Therefore, it is up to the individual to decide to take life by the horns and produce all that they were created to produce. Indecisiveness, too much partying, lack of focus, laziness, being irresponsible, and letting others think for us will lead to deep sorrow in the long run (though it may bring temporary pleasure now). People that have the greatest joy and fulfillment are those that take active roles in charting the course for their lives (though this may bring temporary pain now).
