Jairek Robbins here, and today we’re going to explore a question that could alter your perspective on life. The question is simple, yet profound – Is life happening TO YOU or FOR YOU?
It’s a question of perspective, but it’s one that can shift your mindset and, in turn, your life.
If you believe that life is happening TO YOU, you might feel like a ship being tossed by the waves. Events, circumstances, people – they all seem to control your fate. You might often find yourself playing the victim, reacting instead of acting, and feeling powerless against the current of life.
On the other hand, if you believe life is happening FOR YOU, you’re the captain of that ship. Life’s events, whether good or bad, are opportunities for growth, learning, and evolution. You see challenges as stepping stones, not stumbling blocks. You become proactive, seizing the reins of your destiny.
What do you think would change if you swapped from one perspective to the other?
Would you feel more in control, more empowered? Would you approach life’s challenges differently? Would you be happier, more fulfilled?
Which perspective do you think would allow you to be the best version of yourself every day? Which would let you savor life more, extracting joy from every moment?
Think about these questions. Reflect on them. And then, make your choice.
Will you let life happen TO YOU, or will you choose to see life as happening FOR YOU?
This shift in perspective could be the turning point you’ve been looking for. Make the conscious choice, and see how your life transforms.
Stay empowered, and remember, you are the captain of your ship.
