Taking Control of your Life

Relevant living leads to success. Taking ownership of your life, expanding the good and ditching the bad, looking inside yourself for direction, focus and motivation while ignoring society’s labels and expectations—these are someof the actions and attitudes to prepare you for opportunities to build a successful life.

But personal relevancy can be elusive. It takes introspection to determine what is important to you, where you want to go and how you’re going to get there. Looking inward and really listening to our inner selves isn’t always easy.

“We’re not programmed to look inside,” says StedmanGraham, motivational speaker, educator and best-selling author. “We’re programmed to focus on the external worldto define us. It defines us by our race, by our house, car, job,title, family, class, gender, religion, money—all the external things that give value to who we are.

“We just learn this way,” Graham says. “So we go through the motions looking for the outside world to direct us and guide us. They tell us what to buy, what to eat, what to wear,where to go and what’s new. They dictate to us who we are and where we should be going.”

In essence, Graham says, we relinquish ownership of our lives by putting too much stock in what the world thinks. In the process, we squelch our future success.
