In a society that is becoming more busier, demanding and dynamic every day, taking charge of one’s life is now daunting and almost impossible. With the demands and distraction getting at us, we no longer focus on what matters.
Life is busy!
It’s so easy to get caught up with external activities, situations that have turned us to be passive participants in our own life.
We are all responsible for own lives and just like the tides do not command the ship, the sailor does; it’s time to take charge of your life.
The tides, obstruction, and distractions of life will always be there. But it’s now up to you to take the rudder and stir the ship of our life in the direction you want our life to go each day.
And if you don’t know how to take charge each day, these 5 simple ways will help you to take charge.
How To Take Charge Of Your Day Each Day
Have A Quiet Moment
Quiet moments are stellar moments…..bliss!
There are a whole lot of things one could do during quiet moments. A quiet moment is simply a time to be still; to think clear of what you want out of each day and how you want to achieve it.
This is quiet moments for me,
“In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my request before you and wait in expectation.”Pslm5:3
A lot goes on during my quiet moments. I connect to the spiritual side of me.I seek God to draw from His ocean of grace to help me through the day.
Quiet moments are time taken out each day to remain still from distractions. Mornings are ideal. Such times are moments to chart the course of your day, time to purge your system from every negative vibe that will stand in your way.
It can easily be likened to a man who is about to go on a journey. He makes preparations in view of the journey. So it is with quiet moments. Quiet moments are preparation moments. When you take out some time alone before you begin your day, you position yourself to take charge of your day.
Speak Positively Into Your Day
Life is governed by laws. Laws are a system of rules recognized in a place and as such, controls the action of its inhabitant. Your days only respond to the laws that govern them. And it is depended on your actions -what you say or speak.
One of such laws is the cause and effect law. It says that what we choose is what we get. What we speak is who we become. If you sprinkle positive words into your day, you attract or get a positive result. If you sprinkle negativity, a negative result follows you.
And as it turns out, nothing good comes out of negativity. Taking charge of your day means learning to speak positively, think positively and act positively. Use your lips to send your life in the direction you want it to go each day. Words are powerful.
Tell yourself each day
I am ready to take charge of my life today.
I will reach my goal.
I am stronger than my challenges.
I can do all things that benefit my life, through Christ who strengthens me.
Have A To-Do List
Who wakes up each day and barges in without a to-do list? Without a plan of how he/she intends to spend 24hours? With a to-do list, you get to see your entire day before you.
A to-do list is a list of tasks that need to be completed during the day. Whatever task you want to get done should find its place on your to-do list.
It will keep you from getting lost in the busy-ness of the world. You can’t stop distraction, but you can set, do the things that are important to you with a to-do list.
My daily activities revolve around a to-do list, which keeps me organized and helps me to take charge of my day.
Be Focused On Your Goal
One of the reasons why people do not get what they want is a lack of focus. A lot of things are vying for our attention….things out of our control.
Each wanting a piece of us…..Everyday
Having a to-do list, plan or goal needs a focused mind to be able to achieve them. It will help you to get things under control. A focused mind has no room for distraction.
Be determined to focus your attention and efforts on your daily task to achieve your desired goal.
Be Grateful For Each Day
You may be wondering,” what has gratitude got to do with me taking charge of my day?” A grateful heart is a happy heart. Happy people exude positivity and confidence.
Showing gratitude for each day will always give you more positive energy to face each day. No matter how yesterday went, a grateful heart will always see each day as an opportunity to keep doing that which will position him to take charge every day.
Be grateful for little things…Be grateful for big things…Be grateful for each day
Summing it up
Your life does not get better by chance. It gets better by the choices you make. Making the choice to take charge of your day is a huge step in the right direction. Your life takes up a new shape and meaning.
Always remember….it’s one day at a time.
That’s what life is all about.
Take charge today!
