Self Improvement: Practical Ways of Taking Charge of Your Life

Our modern world can be a crazy, confusing and sometimes dangerous place.

It’s easy to get swept up in the chaos. But how do we avoid it?

Having to bring home the bacon, pursue or maintain a lasting intimate relationship, keep up a healthy lifestyle, build a successful career and lead a happy, fulfilled life seems like an impossible undertaking.

Does all this make you feel out of control? A victim of circumstance? Unable to take it all on and live the life you truly desire?

Do you look at other people who seemingly have it all and wish you could figure it out for yourself?

If it does, you are not alone.

Most people live their entire lives missing out on the vast wealth of joy available to us.

We get stuck in a job that just maintains us, but doesn’t fulfill us.

We “settle” for a relationship that at best feels safe and comfortable.

We eat unhealthy, “easy” food and don’t exercise because there “isn’t time” to do it right.

But don’t lose hope! It is possible to take charge of your life and have it all!

Where We Fail

How we manage the cornucopia of stress and responsibility of daily life is key.

Unfortunately, it’s all too easy to get wrapped up and rely on bad habits and quick fixes to ease our restless minds, hearts, and bodies.

You’ve made the decision you want to eat healthier. But you had a long day at work, and it’s just easier to turn off into that drive-through and start eating healthier tomorrow. Have you done this recently?

Maybe you determined you’d do some meditation to alleviate that daily stress. But a long day of taking care of the kids leads you to just have that cocktail or two before passing out to do it again the next day. Sound familiar?

An exciting new job opportunity arises in a field you’ve been wanting to explore. But the safety and comfort of your “survival job” pays the bills. So, you decide you just aren’t prepared, it’s too risky, and let the interview slide. Are you guilty?

All of these things are just a “flinch,” a way we push our true selves down and allow life to live us, rather than live life.

It doesn’t have to be this way!

Reclaim Your Power

“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask yourself if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.” – Deepak Chopra

All too often we allow our habits to control us. It’s time to reclaim your personal power and make a change.

Here are a few things that you can and will discover when you reclaim your power and take charge of your life:

  • Fear is not your enemy
  • Personal responsibility is more powerful than victim hood
  • Focus on what you want, not what you think you need
  • Forgiveness, of yourself and others, will lead you to freedom
  • Nothing lasts forever


I know you have the ability to take charge of your life and reshape it into that sparkling vision of happiness you deserve.
