I think so ! I made goals early in life after the war and life has been good to me because I wanted it to be ! I have been happy , even with Meniere's Disease . I learned to deal with it and I have a wonderful wife . So yes, I wanted good things to happen when I set my goals and almost all have been filled and we are happy . I stayed away from the dark side and became a happy human being . Anyone can , as long as they take the right road in life !
To me. "life is what you make it" means that when things occur in your life, its your perspective that governs your feelings about what happens. One thing that I have learned is that life is what YOU make of it. You can't control all the events in your life, but you can control your willingness to participate.
Yes, life, simply put, is what you make of it. You choose the direction, twists and turns, and all that lies before you is for your choosing. If you live life in a positive manner, ALL can be yours with a little hard work! ;)
yep,most of us get a bad start in life but we all have the same opportunities why are some people successful and others are not ...its easy its who wants it more .. life is what you make of it.....you can go out make something of yourself or feel sorry for yourself never accomplishing anything = /
Definitely. Our situations are not a choice but how we handle them is. So while you can't decide if you get the job or not, you can work hard and be happy with what you do get. Alternatively, you can mope around and be depressed, making your life stink. I know a guy who's missing one of his legs. His whole leg, gone. Blown off while he was protecting his country. He's one of the happiest people I know, because he chooses to be. He chooses not to look at how hard things are and make the most of every moment he does have.
