You are the captain of your Ship / Du bist der Kapitän Deines Schiffes / Você é o capitão do seu Navio / Eres el capitan de tu Barco

The future you get depends on the choices you make. No one is going to force you to go to the gym, invest in your personal growth, or save for your retirement.

Additionally, you can choose to be an honest person, surround yourself with positive people, and live a healthy lifestyle. Or you can choose an alternate path. The result is, you are bound by the consequences of your choices.

You are the captain of your ship.

Some prefer to make their decisions in a random manner. They flip a coin rather than reviewing their options in a deliberate manner. Others make decisions in a vacuum without taking time to collect the facts or consider the consequences.

Still others simply follow the crowd to avoid taking personal responsibility, or they base their decisions solely on the advice of another person. Lastly, some are more interested in checking an item off their to-do list than in making a sound choice. In this case, expediency tops effectiveness.

You are seriously the only one who knows what is best for you. You can use your emotions as a guidance system to help you decide what you want to do, and it is all about following your highest excitement. The only person who knows what you are feeling is you.

You create your own rules and get to decide what you want to do. There is truly no right or wrong. You are discovering who you truly are, and what you prefer in life. Sometimes, you first have to experience what you do not prefer before you can discover what you do.

Envision a boat making its way through the water, moving further and further from sight, just a tiny object amidst an enormous ocean. It’s journey comprised of endless possibilities, unlimited potential. Its destination could be anywhere in the World.

And while observing this boat, as it glides over the water, nothing is more apparent than the freedom it contains. The beauty in knowing that it can follow its soul into the sunset if it so desires.

And as you look on to this phenomenon you’ll notice that it sheds no light on where the boat has been, nor on what has brought it to this point. You won’t see the wrong turns taken, the mistakes made, nor the obstacles that were overcome to get here.

What you will see is a seemingly fresh start. Where every second of every minute is a new opportunity for the boat to go where it wants to go, to be what it wants to be. Its wake has no impact on its course.

This is one of the most beautiful things about being alive. Every single day provides a blank page in your story for you to fill out as you see fit. Old habits, friends, mistakes, expectations, they exist in whatever capacity you allow them to.

But they are not you, they are not indicative of your potential.

You are the captain of your ship.
