Some circumstances can be controlled, but others may occur without any opportunity to change them. Often people take credit when something goes right, but when things fail the circumstances are commonly blamed instead of the individual taking personal responsibility. No matter what circumstances you find yourself in how you react will reveal your true character as a person.
Before you start walking on the path of your dreams, or when you start walking, fear will come in the way. Fear of the unknown, fear of not being in a comfortable zone, fear of losing it all, fear of criticism, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of change, etc. It's just part of the process, its part of life and its part of your path. Know and believe that whatever fear you have you can conquer it with the help of God. Ask him to help you, because believe it or not God wants you to follow your heart. He is the one that planted those seeds of dreams in your heart. All what you have to do is get closer to God, feel His love, feel the strength that He is giving you to conquer your fears and to walk on that narrow path that He has designed for you. All what you have to do is believe, have faith and never lose focus on your purpose and your dreams and you will be able to kill all of your fears.
Expand your mind, by reading more and understanding how successful people have achieved their dreams. In order to be a great leader and be CEO of your own life, you need to have been a good student. Be humble enough to be willing to learn from the ones that are inspiring you. Don't let the negative emotions fill up your heart, heal from them and move on, otherwise you will never know or achieve your dreams. You need to learn from your past but don't carry it, let it go. And become stronger out of your painful experiences, become a warrior not a victim. And believe that you can achieve all of your goals and dream big. Have faith that you can become who you are supposed to become and don't let anything or anyone dictate who you ought to be.
