Greetings. Welcome to your life. There you stand with your hammer and chisel in hand, staring at your block of marble, not quite sure when you realize this power. The power to shape your ultimate creation in life: you. The unsure, limited time you have ticks away at ever second as you struggle to turn thought into action and utilize this power that everyone has. What am I going to do with my life? Why am I here? SO WHAT?
Where do you start? The arm, leg, head, chest, or feet? It’s up to you. There is no turning back. Well, what’s stopping you when you’re standing there? Go ahead! Is it fear of what you will learn? Is it judgment from other people in who you are and what you do? Is it sharing your creation of the self with the world? Remember, everyone creates themselves. Be cautious in letting people that don’t support your masterpiece aid in chiseling away at you. You have the power to grant that power. The world can turn you into someone or you can take control of your own journey and prevent the world from chiseling you away into its vision of who you are.
Change is a process, and you are changing even without intentional decisions. You can’t be permanent. Life will take over with or without your control. What about being successful? Of course, the elements of success don’t change but the movements do. Success isn’t a line. It cuves and loops and corners. It doesn’t matter where you start, but that you do and keep moving forward. You will be chiseled and shaped whether or not you decide to take control of that responsibility. The technique and speed and focus are vastly varied, but we all make a choice even if we neglect to choose. Take action and create yourself. Recognize your ability to change for the better to enter the path of mastery and self-discovery.
Your philosophy makes your marble or breaks your marble. You make you every day. I am convinced of that.
