The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.
By Austin B. Hahn
In my experience, when you don’t take control of your own life, one of the following happens:
1) People try to take control for you, and then you get angry because your life is at the mercy of others’ whims.
2) Your survival is put in jeopardy, so you’re forced to take care of yourself while trying to catch up with all those years when you could’ve been learning how to take personal responsibility.
