Do not let people play with your life.

Any time you allow someone to have a negative influence over the way you think, feel, or behave, you give them power over your life. You then rob yourself of your ultimate potential.

Some people will not like you and some people will not like your choices. You do not have to let their opinions affect how you feel about yourself. If you feel bad about yourself based on what someone says or how that person feels about you, gives that person too much power over you.

Holding a grudge is never a solution either. A grudge will not belittle the other person’s life, but it can wreak havoc on your own. Holding on to anger from the past allows an individual to occupy space in your life. This does not by any form mean you need to allow toxic people into your life. You should not, PERIOD.

You should never be discouraged if your goals take time to be reached. Giving up after being rejected gives an individual the power to determine what you will do with your life.

Whether you do not get that job, promotion or turned down for a project, that you were yearning for, do not give up. Just because other people do not recognize your potential does not mean you cannot succeed.

Take initiative and take your power back. Yes, you might loose it sometimes but it is never too late to claim it back. You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be. It is just a matter of choice.
