You are the master of your fate
I am the master of my fate; I am captain of my soul (William Ernest Henley)
Our life is made up of series of choices and consequences. The moment we decide to take full responsibility for the things that happen in our life, it will begin to change for the better. The things we say about ourselves will always supersede the things said by others. You serve as the numerator in your life equation and the people in your life serve as the denominator. When others bring spiritual, emotional, and financial value equal to yours, your life becomes one or whole. On the other hand, when they bring emotional, financial, and spiritual baggage that is greater than you and your resources, your life becomes a fraction of what it should be. To become the master of your fate, you must first take ownership of your choices.
