Life does not just happen unless you let it. And you know the ones who let it because they are the ones who are always complaining. If you wish to live your lifestyle, you want to live your way.

I am not going to hand you a lecture on how life is the work that you put into it. I am not here to bore you, saying that to control life, you have to control yourself first. I am not going to mention all the dangers you have out in the world. I will ask you a simple question. What do you really want, and what are you doing about it?

If you drift and wait for whatever comes your way, you are stuck. Well, you are stuck with whatever came your way. At the same time, if you mention that you want something, voices will come out of the woodwork explaining to you why that would never work. 

May I offer two suggestions. Do not drift and do not listen to voices. Just as there are endless miles of vast nothingness between major cities, there are 1000 ways to end up in a place you hate for every excellent position that you could land. You want to land in a place where you want to be.

If you feel you cannot do it, then I know you can. You have belief; the first test is you can feel and believe.

It is too important a subject to burn you out in one day and one blog. We will continue this from time to time. And we will look at ways that we can go from where we are to where we desire to be.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
