Surely, in life as in football, you can't go far unless you know where the goalposts are. To lead and live the life of your dream, you must arise and be in-charge of the authorship of your own destiny. Taking 100% charge of your future requires that you must be responsible for all your actions and reactions. I know you have been through a lot, regardless of how you have been through; you can rise up and take total control of your destiny. No more excuses! Discover the real you and recover all you have lost.
People might have been responsible for your unfavorable situations, to enjoy a favorable and blissful life depends on you. Never leave your life to chances but make empowering choices that will disempower the limiting factors around you. You need an intentional and electrifying change to create your desired future. You must pay a price to enjoy a prize. Nothing is free even in Freetown. Love yourself and handle the gears of your life. Do not allow anyone drive your as he/she wishes, you must be on the drivers of your own destiny to achieve your greater future and be a person of influence in this day and age.
A setback is a setup for a greater comeback. What did you learn from your experiences in life? The only way to be a loser in life is by giving up hope. I advice you keep hope alive every time. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different result is absolute madness. You must think right and do things right to be flushed with success in line with your desires. Knowing what doesn't work, moves you closer to knowing what does work. Its only when you can look failure in the eye, learn from it and rise above it, will you succeed. The popular saying goes that, "life is not a bed of roses." You can make your life a bed of roses by learning from those who went before you. Read books in areas of education, leadership, biography, self help and general to improve yourself.
To be the real you, hit the mark and make the grade, you must define and make better your self-concept which is the sum total of your self-image, self-esteem and self-ideal. Some people are the second edition of another person. You can be the best you by loving yourself, finding your God-given purpose and passionately fulfill it. You can't go where you cannot see. Expand your horizon, think big and work hard and surely you will be crowned with super success. You have a life; make a success of it.
