You are Born to Win

Be the HERO of your own story and rescue yourself from a life of weakness. A hero can be defined as someone who does what is best for the common good no matter what the peril, jeopardy or cost. To be a hero is to maintain your supremacy by always taking complete accountability over the quality of your life. You must take accountability for your decisions, opinions, expressions and actions. If you fail to do so, you will pay an exorbitant price for it, both professionally and personally. Be the one who takes charge of your life and transforms it into a stunning success.

There is a hero within you waiting to be let out into the world. Take the best from other victorious people and mould yourself into the person that you actually want to be. You are born unique and you need to realize that fact as early as possible. No one is going to protect you; you must protect yourself and be the hero who grows up from the clutches of orthodoxy. The preferences you make will design your destiny. Once you understand that you are in charge of your life, everything changes; your life becomes focused and hopeful.

You were born to be great; you were not meant to waste or misuse your life. Instead of living a life that was shaped for you, proactively create your own life which is perfect for you. When you create your story, you design the rules for how you live a triumphant life. How you define a successful life is beside the point because we all have different descriptions of what it means to live life productively. What is important is that you understand that you can create that life. Write a screenplay and give yourself the starring role, and deliver an Oscar-worthy performance!
