Daily Word: Do It Yourself!!!

Wonderful Wins-Day, my Wise and Intellectual!

Off the heels of the President’s State of the Union address, today’s Daily Word is dedicated to Doing Things Yourself! I said this three years ago, and I will say it again! President Barack Obama is only one man! Yes, he is the leader of the free world, and yes, as the leader he has a great responsibility of moving our economy forward. But ultimately, the onus is on you to change yourself, and do the things that will help you move forward!

Often times, we are too reliant on a person, a system, a job, a relationship… You name it…. We tend to think that things are owed to us, and that we must wait until they are given! If you want it then Take it!! If it’s yours, then go get it!! Whatever you believe is possible is possible! Whatever roadblocks you foresee will be roadblocks!

Understand that you are in control, and you are the only person that you can rely on for sure! Give up your power if you will, but don’t sit and complain when life is not exactly how you want it! Only you can make your life better! Begin today to put the actions in place that will give you everything you want! As Gandhi said, “Be the change that you want to see in the world.” I know that the dictionary says that ‘change’ starts with ‘C,’ but in reality, Change starts with you!!! (Haaaa!! Get it….. Ok…. Never mind.) -Ash’Cash
