As I write this I’m at the age of 23. Each day I look around and see the people around me and wonder what their life is like. Do they do what they love or do they drag through life as a zombie. I don’t know what most people expect from life but what I do expect from myself is to try and make as much of it I can and add as much value that I can.
The Spark That Started It All
I remember at the end of my 8th grade year I mentally made a decision to change my life. I wanted to make a change because of all the damage, drama, and pain I have experienced that was dragging me down an endless path of destruction and life filled with no fulfillment. My grades before this moment were horrible I barley passed my classes to continue to high school.
I sat in my desk ready to pick my classes for high school. I herd people talking about picking the least difficult classes to make it easy as possible. I didn’t want that for myself. I knew I had to change my thoughts or I was doomed. I decided to take all advanced classes.
That was the day I sparked a new way of thinking. I learned at an early age that in order to be successful in life you have to change your thought process. This new way of thinking allowed me to do and accomplish things that I never once thought I could.
I was a dorky/geeky kid in high school and wanted to join the Marines. I was 17 at the time and everybody told me not to do it or I couldn’t do it. I was determined though. I was not going to let anyone no matter who they were change my mind or what I can or can’t accomplish.
Guess what? I served 6 years in the Marines, traveled the world, trained with different special forces around the world, and got to be part of a Scout Sniper Platoon on my last combat tour.
Thoughts Create Reality
So where am I getting at with all of this? It’s simple! Your thoughts create reality. Don’t live in fear or think negative about yourself or the world around you. You attract and create based off your emotions and thoughts.
Quite living in fear and go out do what you want with your life. Is their something you always wanted to do with your life? A place you always wanted to go? What is stopping you? The answer is fear. You need to take action right now and take charge of you life. It’s your life and destiny, make it what you want it to be.
The Age Old Myth
You know the story where you go to school, get a degree, and life will be grand. Have you noticed lately that more and more college graduates are having a hard time finding a job? It seems the education system is pumping out crap degrees that have very little use in our society. To be honest I bet I could better educate myself than what some people learn in college or other schools.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not condoning to not go to college or saying that it’s a bad choice. You can learn a very important trade or something of great value. What I am saying is that college has turned more into a profit generating system than a educational system.
I did attend college but I realized that it is not for me. I knew that I wanted to be an Entrepreneur. I wanted to take charge of my own life and that is exactly what I did. I know work the hours I want and do what I love at the age of 23. I wake up when I want, work as much as I want to, and I will never do it any other way again.
Don’t Be A Zombie
Do you notice yourself almost brainless in the sense of doing the same thing everyday not getting any fulfillment out of life? It’s ok if you are because their are millions if not billions of people who live this life. simply living their life as zombies. Going to a job they hate coming home to watch TV to only make them more brainless.
It’s not to late to change this. It will be hard but the reward is far greater. Here are some steps to get you on the right track.
- Watch less TV
- Exercise Weekly
- Create Weekly Goals
- Eat Healthier Foods
- Analyze Your Thoughts
- Think Highly Of Yourself
- Envision Your Future
- Learn A New Skill
- Meet New People

I can keep going and going and give you a list but the truth is their is no magic list to follow in life that tells you all the steps in being happy in life. That is up to you my friend to WAKE UP and grab life by the horns and show it who’s boss. What do you have to lose? What is the point in living if your afraid to take risks. Think about it if you had only 1 week to live would you be happy with what you have accomplished in life so far? If the answer is no then you need to get off YOUR ASS and live.
I hope this blog post helps you realize just how great your life can be if you choose to make it that way. It’s your choice and your destiny. Don’t let others create it for you!
