OPINION – “Start shaping your own day. Start walking your own walk. This journey is yours, take charge of it. Stop giving other people your power to shape your life.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli

As the world turns with excitement on who the next President will be, I am in awe of the amount of people that are basing their future on one person stepping into the oval office. For me, I have always been an advocate on policies that bring forth growth in our great country however, I can’t help but to think what would happen if we stopped relying on someone else to hold the pen when writing the story of our own lives.

You see, one of the greatest opportunities we have in this physical life is the power to build a life of our own dreams. The gift of building each day, each year and each decade one to remember. A life filled with passion and purpose while manifesting all of the things we truly desire at the core of our soul. And while, I make this sound like an effortless feat to accomplish; The truth is, that the only way for real growth in this country and ourselves to show itself unmistakably clear comes down to our own personal accountability for what we do with this one life we have, while we have it.

Because in the end, many many Presidents of this free world will come and they will go but the one constant that will take place in each and everyone of our lives is the ability to get up every day and do all we can do, be all we can be and create a life of purpose as well as happiness that isn’t based upon a story that was poured into us without ever double checking the validity of that narrative.

Be Bold. Be Great. Be You.
