Make it Happen - who else will?
We need to make it happen, whatever "it" happens to be. The reason I say this is because it's rarely ever in anyone's best interest to do it for you.
After all, what do they get out of it except perhaps a warm fuzzy feeling?
Whether you have a plan to get out of debt, build wealth or start your own business, you have to do it yourself. You have to lead and cheer yourself on. And, you have to correct course as your plan unfolds to make certain you achieve.
Thomas Jefferson tells us, "Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude." If you adopt a can do attitude, then you're much more likely to be successful.
Adopt the wrong attitude, and you'll go nowhere fast. You'll be a non-achiever. What good is that?
Unfortunately, many of us have been taught that someone is going to decide for us, do for us, and help us along every step of the way. Many of us have relegated ourselves to being victims of "the times," circumstances, the economy, and others - whatever!
It's the wrong way to think.
You must understand that whatever good and meaningful thing takes place in your life will be because you make it happen, not because someone else is looking out for you.
If you think that someone else is going to take your part and look out for you, it will be a rare situation indeed. If you're not willing to at least try to look out for yourself, how in the world do you expect to motivate others to do it for you?
Unless someone has some political motivation or wants to be seen as a hero, there isn't much of a chance that they would have more interest in your well-being than you would, so you're the one that needs to act.
Make it happen or make up your mind to stay right where you're at.
