Do your circumstances dictate your life? Or, are you in total control of the things that occur to you? If the latter is true for you, congratulations! You are one of the luckiest human beings on earth. Frankly speaking, very few people dictate circumstances and things in their lives. Instead, it is these circumstances and things that dictate their lives.
And if you are not one of those lucky ones, no worries! You can develop this art of not being a victim of circumstances. Yes! It is an art. A rare one, in fact. We have got your back. Here is what it takes to not be a victim of circumstances.
If the Shoe Fits, Wear it
First up: There are lots of advice and suggestions out there. If you are active on social media platforms, you can tell that everyone is a so-called guru out there. Every Insta post and Twitter thread hits you right in the face. Based on your current situation, you relate to it. And you feel that the post is meant for you. If the post really talks to you in its core essence, take the advice and follow it. And if it does not, scroll past for good.
However, following the suggestion or advice that links with you is a worthwhile thing to do. To begin with, you will get a sense of purpose and motivation if you follow something you can relate to. Secondly, you will also get a clear picture of your objectives and goals. In other words, you will be having a pristinely clear view of your goals.
Take What is Meant for You
So, whenever you hear something that hits you right in the face, know that it is meant for you. And take it for good. It does not matter who you hear this advice and suggestion from. Or, where do you get this motivation? The key component here is that you get to relate to it. In turn, you will achieve your objectives.
Another striking feature of ‘wearing the shoes when it fits’ is that it will never let you down. Consequently, you will never be a victim of circumstances. To put this in other words, things and circumstances will not dictate your life. Instead, you will be the captain of your life, and you will be the one dictating things and circumstances.
