I’m going to let you in on a little secret that seems obvious, but that many people forget: YOU are the CEO of your life.
Let that sink in. By my own unscientific estimate, about 99% of the problems we have in our life come from one person, the one we see in the mirror.
YOU are the CEO of your life in every area. For better or worse, you are the technician, the manager, the accountant, the VP, the CFO, and ultimately the CEO of everything.
YOU are the CEO of your eating. You — and you alone — are responsible for the things you eat and put into your body.
YOU are the CEO of your fitness. You — and you alone — decide to work out or not, to skip the training session or attend it. You decide to work at 100% or half-ass your training.
YOU are the CEO of your bank account. You — and you alone — control your financial status. You control how much money you make, save, and spend daily.
YOU are the CEO of your attitude. You — and you alone — decide to wake up in a good mood each day (or not). You decide to take things in your stride (or get sidetracked by them). You decide to see the glass as half-full or half-empty.
YOU are the CEO of every situation, problem, and event you encounter in this life. You can’t control what happens to you, but you are 100% in control of your thoughts about those situations and how you react to them.
My point is to establish that YOU are the boss. You are in complete control of your life. And thus, you are 100% responsible for the outcomes you’ve received up until this point.
Are you happy with them? Great, keep doing you. If you’re not, remember that there’s only one person responsible for that. There’s also only one person who can change it, and they’re both the same person.
Why not start now?
