I believe in each of us lies the power to change our lives. Often the outcome depends on the decisions we make. I give you an example.
Two individuals can grow up in the same household, subjected to the same environment, One pursue a path that leads to success while the other leads a mediocre life. Why is this so? It was the decisions that they both made for their lives. One was determined to rise above his circumstances while the other was contented to accept his fate. The power to move from where you are to where you want to be lies within you, you just have to want it bad enough. You see the change you wish to see in life begins with you.
