If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. – Jim Rohn
It is important to have your own plans. At times, we fail in life and that’s only because we run short of planning. We do not have enough plans to support ourselves. It is mostly because we are so used to our own ways of living that we neglect the things that may happen once we turn a little off-beat.
Successful people have achieved their goals and could gain all that success only because they have never been contented with all that they had! They were never satisfied within their shells. They dreamt bigger and they always tried to explore new things and experiment if things would work!
They had failed a million times but that didn’t stop them anyway. They were so determined about their goals that they kept on trying over and over again. They had several plans to back them up. They tried plan A and had plan B alongside. They understood that even if plan A didn’t work, they had other options ready with them.
If you do not have your own plans, you will have to fall in others’ plans. It is more like deciding to build your own empire or engage yourself in building others. It is better to keep on trying to build your own castle for that will be your own shelter and you could be the king once you manage to build it properly.
On the contrary, if you build others’ castle, it would never be yours, no matter how beautifully it’s done! If you fall in others’ plans, no matter how skillful you are, you will still have nothing much for you. Therefore, you should always focus on building things by yourself and for yourself and get your plans ready!
