I recently saw a quote, the beginning of which said, “You are the master of your destiny.”
I’ve always heard and subscribed to the belief that “you create your reality,” so the phrasing above really stood out to me as a different way of saying the same thing.
You are the master of your destiny.
Sit with this.
I hear you, “I get it but -” But what? You are the master of your destiny- and then things happen to you? You are the master of your destiny- but you're not really in charge, other people are? You are the master of your destiny- sometimes?
It can be hard if you grew up with the mindset that you can be subjugated by others or at the mercy of the world. Which is another way of saying, victimized by. That can be insidious. Maybe you don't consider yourself a victim, but there are certain areas in life that trip you up and that you feel you have no power over. But if you have no power, you're powerless which puts you in victim mode. Not pleasant to acknowledge but don't judge it, it just is. Almost everyone has those areas. The “I create my reality, except when...”
Theory and practice are two different things. You may understand this in theory, but as far as practical application, you're still sorting that out.
Start by observing and noticing. Where do you still lose your power? Where do you not feel that you are the master of your destiny? From a place of neutrality, question why that is. By your observation you bring attention and by your attention you start to heal it.
Then take your power back and create your reality moment by moment in your beliefs, your perspective, your attitude, and your emotions. Live from a new and empowered place.
As the full quote says:
“You Are The Master of Your Destiny
