No matter what your age and what your situation It’s a Wide Open Road Ahead.
You’re never too old and you’ve never made too many mistakes.
You possess Free Will and you live in the greatest time in history. Take advantage of this good fortune. Don’t live your life and let this slip by.
Without a doubt, it is possible at this very moment to change your life.
From unlearning bad habits to radical life change, this power does reside within you.
Stop right now and think. Really think.
Free will. You do possess it.
Do you deny it? Of course not.
Then accept it as Truth.
Accept it as your new Law for Life. Today is a new day. Right now is a new moment. Choose and set yourself free. And then keep choosing, day by day and moment by moment.
As soon as you intuitively grasp this reality it will light the Fire of Joy within. You will see nothing but possibilities and potential. And hope, excitement and a new Energy will begin to drive you forward.
And what better Energy is there for success in this life than Joy?
It is positive, powerful and will arm you to handle just about anything.
With Joy as your fuel for change, the sky’s the limit.
So open up your mind and open up your heart. Think about what it is that will light you up like nothing else. What is it that will be as exciting and rewarding in the pursuit as it will be when attained? And even it never fully realized, what is it that will always be worth the effort?
A new career? A new shredded physique? Financial independence? A new love life? A renewed Faith? Or perhaps just you at your very best from now on until your last day; troubles be damned.
Ask yourself these questions while considering the fact that you are a man with Free Will. And that you have access to resources, information and technology that even royalty could not even imagine just a couple of generations ago.
Not that it will be easy. Nothing in this world that is worthwhile will ever be easy. But you know this. After all, nothing is easy right now.
But mix in a new Mission with an abundance of Joy and it becomes a whole new ball game as they say.
You’ve got to believe in your Core that you do indeed possess the ability to change who you are. You do posses the ability to change how you live your life. And you do have the ability to change how you think about things.
You can determine your own fate. And you can control your own Destiny.
You can be happy if you decide to be. It’s that simple.
You possess both a Soul and a Mind. And each is unique unlike anything else in the universe. Both your Soul and Mind are self directed. Through the use of Free Will each one can make itself better. And each one can also complement the other.
A healthy Soul will lead to a healthy Mind. And a healthy Mind will lead to a healthy Soul.
Belief in this simple concept is the key because it will give you the power to change.
You can change.
And you can change right now. Both Soul and Mind can make it so.
Will you have difficulties and failures along the way? Sure.
Will you have doubts and issues with confidence? Yes.
Will everyone you care about cooperate and support you? No.
But once again, how is that any different than right now?
It’s time to move past all of that. The difference today is you’ve brought to the fore of your Mind and Soul that your life is yours to do with as you wish. You’re fed up with your past. And you’re fed up being fed up.
So it’s time to take the gloves off and let yourself loose on the world.
Deep down you know what it is you want. You know who it is you want to become. Intuitively you know who you can be at your very best. So you will become that person right now and then get out there and get after it.
But let’s be smart here. Give yourself every advantage.
Write down who it is you wish to become and what it is you wish to achieve. Be as specific as possible. Make it concrete. Crystallize your ambitions into words so that you cannot forget as the fog of life ensues.
At least get something down in writing. You can always make changes and make it better as you go.
And make the decision to remove everything from your life that is inconsistent with your new direction. Stop doing things that make you weak, quit the Shallow Distractions and drop those people who will hold you back.
You know what and who these things and people are. Be honest and be ruthless for once.
Spend your time without any friends or even family if you have to. Learn to enjoy your own company. This is a skill that will serve you well. There is nothing at all wrong with spending some time in your life alone. It will give you some space to clear your head and sort yourself out away from the usual distractions.
Doing these things will clear a path and create some open space in your life for the good to enter. It will create a void that you will displace with actions and habits and eventually new people that will lift you up.
Turn off the television and turn off the radio. Read. Write. Listen to podcasts. Exercise. Spend some time just sitting there visualizing yourself walking around in top form enjoying life.
You will make everything in your life consistent with your new Mission.
So there will be nothing in the way and you will do nothing but create momentum. And then take Action towards your Mission and your Ideal Self or whatever it is that you’re pursuing.
Action will lead to more action. And then more action will lead to inspiration.
This is letting yourself loose on the world.
This is the wide open road ahead.
Take that road and see where it leads you. Just as with headlights in the dark of night, you don’t have to be able to see all the way to your destination to make progress. The key is to keep putting in the miles each and every day. Even if it’s not at all perceptible, just keep doing the right things and enjoy the momentum.
Trust in your efforts and trust in your direction. Give yourself some credit for making the changes and getting out into the field of play. Let those who would criticize continue to do so from the sidelines. They are of no concern to you; Joy and Momentum are now your allies.
Keep reminding yourself of the title of this essay if you begin to slip, if you begin to stray or if you lose your direction. Because you will slip, stray and lose direction once in a while. But you will course correct and get right back on track.
Adjust that steering wheel and nudge yourself back in lane. Hit the gas pedal and keep driving. And let Joy fuel the ride.
You’re a man.
Choose to do what’s right.
And keep choosing the same.
That’s all there is to it.
It’s a Wide Open Road Ahead.
All the best,
