The power you have over your experiences can be determined by your reality.
It can make you weak, to settle down, catch you in the comfort zone trap, living a standard model of life imposed by society, and accepted by you following the crowd.
“The one who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd.” Albert Einstein.
Or on the contrary, you can stand up, climbing the hill of the challenges, hungry to grow, to feed your mind, and to rise to your highest level.
Being sometimes aware of your reality can be difficult and scary. You cannot face the fact that you maybe live a trivial, limited life built on illusions. That you are dominated and controlled by the outside world, forgetting and losing your inner world.
At a certain point, you lose your personality, the power over you, and you find yourself trapped in a maze without escape that pushes you toward fear, pain, silent sadness, insecurity and weakness.
Every day is a maze… I wonder if this is my place. Sadness, fear, and pain… I picked this game.
STATES OF REALITY!
Let me ask you something:
What is your reality?
Be honest with yourself if you want to have a real perspective of your life.
THE FLOW STATE
If your reality is in the “flow” state in which you have a clear vision of your future, you pull yourself forward for your dreams, taking action to achieve them, you are happy with the life you have now, then, I must Congratulate you. You live a fulfilled life with a purpose.
THE ANXIOUS STATE
Instead, if you have a clear vision of your future, but you are not happy with your present, then I must say you are living in a high level of stress and anxiety.
And if you want to go ahead, there is something that represses your desire and that limits your actions. I have been there. But believe me, from this level to flow’s one, is just one step away. The solution is to choose the right path.
HAPPY IN THE PRESENT STATE
The current reality trap of most of the people, is being “happy” in the present, living a monotonous life, in their comfort zone, without any clarity or purpose about future.
THE NEGATIVE LOOP STATE
But the worst state of reality is the Negative Loop, in which you are not happy with your life in the present, and you do not have a vision about the future. You are living in the same loop, over and over again, waiting to pass day by day, without any personal improvement.
You are “all-at-sea” completely lost, deeply confused, in a state of uncertainty.
“You are not the product of your circumstances, you are a product of your decisions.” Stephen Covey
FACE YOUR REALITY!
Now, ask yourself:
Which from these 4 states is my reality?
I am happy where I am now?
What do I really and deeply want?
Do not give up at your life, if at some point you become aware of your reality, and you realize that you can be, something bigger than just something! Do not collapse on your own!
“Nothing can destroy iron, but its rust can. Nothing can destroy a person, but his mindset can.”
What kind of person do you want to be?
What do you wish to accomplish in your life?
Which wild path are you afraid to take?
Dig deeper, till the deepest level of yourself, and bring out to the light your fears, your true self, your value, and talent. Do not walk a path just because you fell into it and appear to be yours. Do not lose your uniqueness by trying to be someone else. Touch the depth of your soul.
Walk your own path! Rise to the next level! Set yourself up for success and new challenges!
Focus on what you desire at the deepest level, and not on what others want to project on to you.
WHAT IS THE RIGHT PATH?
Following your heart, your vision, listening to your callings, will not be an easy way.
But when you will feel that is true for you, and your soul really craves for it, making you face whatever wave may sweep on you, then you will know, that this will lead you to the greatest destinations.
You have qualities, strength and talent, not just fears, worries, and doubts. Learn to use your emotions to think, and not think with your emotions.
Refine your purpose, have an accurate vision, willing for new frontiers and challenges, find your own place and know what makes you unique.
Be confident that you can make a difference!
Develop your talents and your abilities, expand your capacity, your values and your knowledge, and that will move you from the crowd to the crown.
When you will embrace your fears and you will put yourself in action following your passion, when you will feel excited to wake up in the morning having that sparkle in your soul, that makes you happy, that gives you strength to do whatever it takes to accomplish your vision, then you will know and you will feel that you are in the right path, for you.
“Dance for the stages you want to be on, not for the room you are in. Visualize what your future looks like and find yourself there.”
Till next time…
Walk Your Own Path!

Hello there! This is a very informative and inspirational article! Sometimes we are so caught up with what others are doing that we forget about ourselves and what we truly want deep down. It can be scary when one knows what they have to do to achieve those desires but walking that road and going through that (temporary) pain is less painful than not having made the attempt. Thanks for creating this post!
Thank you for your contribution through this comment. Indeed, sometimes we “fall” and follow a path, without realizing it, that only gives the appearance of being ours, and of what we want. But as long as we realize, at some point, that this is not what we really want, and we are willing to make the necessary changes, we can say that we are at the beginning of taking the right path for ourselves.
I really enjoyed going through your article because it is motivating and inspiring as well. I needed this right now because I have been down in my mood lately, and I found myself lost. In the current situation the future is under many question marks, and we just need an article like this to lighten us up, to never give up at our dreams, and to find our own path to make them accomplished. Thank you for giving me the needed support, and to reminds me that life is just one, that is why we need to live it in our own terms.
You very welcome Collins, thank you for your beautiful words. I appreciate them. I am glad that my article offered you a little support and help with guidance. I really wish for you to find your own path in life. All the best!
It is funny, as I grow more mature my priority in life has changed. Before was just all about making money, now it is just my physical and mental health. I love the quote from Einstein, he is absolutely right.
I think we all forget about our “goal” because we are so overwhelmed by all these necessaries stuff in out life. We forget to just sit down and weigh our priority, mindfulness is slowly forgotten in this fast paced world that we live in.
It is time to just sit down and talk to ourselves on what we really want and walk on the path that makes us happy.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful words. I am glad that you are aware of your own existance. You are on the right path for you, my Dear.
Hey there! Every and each thing you said in this article is very true. Actually in this world we are just tending to do the things that all other do. But among all these we forget that we also have a life, we also have to live. We just can’t balance between the world and our life. And the result is depression, frustration and many other mental defects. We are just bounded by our reality. But we should change this reality very soon, other wise this reality would consume us very soon.
We should do what we actually want to do, what we are born to do. By this we can enjoy both the world and also this life. Both life and reality is important. So we must learn to make a balance between them.
Your article is really inspiring. Thank you.
Fahim, thank you very much for your beautiful words. Indeed, as I said in my article we need to follow our calls, our vision, and to walk in the right direction for us. Sometimes this can be difficult due society, family, friends. But the decission on how we want to build our lives, it is entirely ours.

Thank you for stopping by. I am glad that my article gave to you that sparkle to think at your own existence. It is a first step. A good one.
Thanks Diana, very inspiring and motivational. I have never been one to be a passenger of life I always take the drivers seat when I can. We are on this mortal coil too short a time to not make use of the gifts that are inherent in us and where possible to use those gifts to benefit not only ourselves but others.
In my mind there can be no excuse for passive living, we must make our life what we want and need it to be and enjoy the whole range of emotions that we are blessed with the ability to experience
Thank you for your appreciation. I agree with you to share with somebody our experiences, our steps in life. In this way, the life will be more easier.
As you said, are no excuses for passive living, but in the most cases, this is what the people prefer to live.
First of all, thank you for sharing such a beautiful article with us and giving me an opportunity to discuss the topic.
I have learned a lot of things through your article. Your article is educative as well as informative.
Our life is a great place to do something for our own future. For our better future, we need to select the right path. To improve lifestyle we need to follow some rules and regulation. From your article, I have learned some real-life rules.
Thank you again for the nice post. I will share it with my friends. I have enjoyed it.
Thank you for your appreciation. I am glad that you found my article useful. Choosing your own right path, not imposed, needs to come with your own rules. That means your own discipline, your own habits and your own decissions.
Many thanks to you for sharing such an excellent article with me and I am a very aware person of my health and I regularly walk.

I think a clear vision is needed for the future .Also my willpower was strong .In reality, many dangers will come, bad times will come, frustration will come, but we must overcome them .Walking in the right direction requires the right plan and I think I have succeeded in following the right path with the right plan .
Lastly, I hope that by reading your article, everyone will have a wonderful feeling and learn a lot and will definitely share their new experiences with you.
I am agree with you. Indeed, we need to have a vision of what we want to become and accomplish in our lives. The journey till the destination will not be an easy one. But taking it step by step, led by our purpose, our goals, we will overcome all the obstacles.
Hallo there Diana,
Thanks a lot for this post, it is just what I wanted to hear at this moment.
I have been struggling to carve out my own path and I seem to be doing things contrary to what others are doing, and it is scaring me.
I have come to find out things about life that work well for me but when I tell others, they argue with me.
So I have decided not to try to make them understand me and I will also not want to fit in with their ideas. Just as the quote you have given us, “The one who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd”.
It has really put things into perspective for me and I now appreciate the progress that I am making slowly by slowly.
I will be stopping by for more motivation every now and then.
Thanks again and keep up the good work.
Thank you for stopping by Dave, for your appreciation and especially for sharing with us your story.
I have been in your situation, driven by my dreams, my vision and my callings, having against me all the world around.
But you know what? I didn’t care. I didn’t want to fit in somebody else’s path. I wanted to walk my own path, to discover new wild challenges, and to improve myself with every each step taken.
If you found your own path, go for it!
this is a really inspiring post and the inspiration i have gotten from this article of yours is awesome. confidence comes with your known ability and what you can do. this is why engaging in activities that will bring growth in your abilities and talent is very necessary thank you for this post.
I appreciate your time in reading this article. I am glad to see that inspired you. Is good to know that you have settled your own purpose and driven to reach it. Go for it!
Nothing perplexes me more than those who are going through the motions everyday waiting for change to happen to them. Locked in their own negative internal data loops and projecting their assumptions externally wondering why things don’t change in their life. You have a great perspective and message born from the difficult circumstances you rose from, like the Phoenix rising up with your bright light and heart. I hope many others come upon your message and story, lives are changed at the moment they live their purpose!
Welcome to my website. Thank you for stopping by and for your beautiful words of appreciation.
It is true. I rise from difficult circumstances, because I choose so.
Until we are not aware of our reality, where we are standing, and what we really want from our deepest level, we will be always trapped in our own maze.
