It sounds hokey, but you really can change your destiny. Be real about why your life sucks, and then take steps to make positive change.
The boss has unreasonable expectations. Children and spouses have needs. Mom and dad think we should do this.
The neighbor is upset about that. But you can change your destiny. Today is the future yesterday.
Whether you realize it or not, you consciously or unconsciously led yourself to this moment. At this point, most people deflect to their perceived circumstances.
Blame your place of birth, the economy, or politicians. Instead of placing blame, we should change what we believe.
