Take a quick inventory of where you are in your life. On a scale on 1-10 where would you score yourself for these questions?

I live where I choose.
My life is under control.
I am consistently successful at reaching my goals.
I have enough of what I need, and am building my reserves.
I have the life I always wanted to have.
All the people around me are friendly and supportive.
I am at ease with the person I am.
I am passionate about my work.

How did you score? How do you feel about these questions? Are they easy to answer?

Are you comfortable answering each of these questions? Are you comfortable with
your answers?

As we live our lives out on a day to day basis, we become accustomed to the staus quo. We are used to life as it is, and sometimes we find ourseves even resigned to our 'fate'.

For some people, life is a series of issues to be dealt with. These folks wake up knowing today will be a struggle like every other day. They expect it! Not only do they expect it, but they are resigned to it! If you asked them why they do this, they will not be able to tell you why.

There is a much better way to live. Each one of us was given amazing powers of creation. The greatest use of this power is to create your own life. Creation is hard work and many people choose to allow someone else to create for them.

How well do you think someone else will work to create your life? Exactly. I surely do not want to wait for someone else to work hard at creating their life, then create mine. I don't think much would happen!

Start today to learn and utilize the tools we are all given. The tools are easy to use. A shovel is easy to learn how to use. Digging the hole is hard. A pencil is easy to use. Writing the book is hard.

Make a living or make a life. The choice, as are all choices, is up to you.
