I don’t care if you’re 20, 30, 40 or more. You could be making decisions in your life because of something that happened to you in your teenage years or other times during your life. No matter how old you are, I want to tell you that it is not too late to recalibrate and make adjustments to your life. You still have a lifetime of living to do and you can change how your past impacts your future.
If we’re not careful, the things we think about can drastically affect our lives and the direction that it goes in. You can learn to be the driver of your car rather than the passenger. You may not have any control over what happened to you in the past, but you do not have to allow it to control your thoughts or drive your decisions. You can learn to control your thoughts and you have the ability to kick thoughts out of your head.
Thoughts are like seeds; they plant themselves in your mind and germinate and grow if you allow them to. They will ultimately Be the Driver of your Car, guiding your path down the road of life if you allow them to have the keys.
I did not allow the dysfunction of my home growing up to drive my car. I did not allow the negativity that surrounded me to seep into my thoughts, dictating where I was supposed to go and how I was supposed to live my life. I did not allow the seeds planted by my history to germinate, but rather I kicked them out, replacing them with positive thoughts about myself and my life.
You too can take control of your thoughts. You can drive your car down the path that YOU choose, by not allowing your history to infiltrate your mind, planting seeds of unhappiness and frustration along the way. No. You can take back the keys and drive your life to the destiny that has been waiting for you and that you deserve.
Have you allowed things that have happened to you to keep you down, to hold you back from achieving success?
Do you allow negative thoughts to prevent you from taking charge of your life?
Do you want more from your life and have never been sure of how to do it?
Let me be the first to tell you that it is never too late to take control of your thoughts, to stomp on the seeds of negativity before they germinate, and to grab hold of your keys again. It will, of course, require hard work, effort and you will slip and slide. But, I can assure you that you can take hold of the thoughts and history that have controlled you thus far and you can Be the Driver of Your Car!
