Thousands of people in this country have their own dreams of being successful person in this world. They want to start their own business, want to live on their own terms and want live a successful life. Every one of us wants to make our dream our reality. We do lots of work to turn our dream into real. But only some of us become successful and others try to achieve but fail to achieve it. But it doesn’t mean that we should stop working on our dreams instead we should keep working harder and harder in different ways to turn our dream into reality. But there are many people who don’t even try to achieve their dream. To make your dream your reality, the thing you require is that you should become your own boss. Les Brown says—“If you don’t program yourself life will program you.” To turn your dream into reality you have to plan some actions which you will have to take in order to change your dream into reality. Don’t let others make decisions for you. It’s your life, you know yourself better than others. So, it’s your responsibility and duty to take decisions for yourself and for which you are capable in doing so. Nobody in this world can know you better than you, then why you give them opportunity to take decision for yourself. You are capable of taking decisions for yourself then it’s your duty to take right decision for yourself. At time you can consult for others. Others can only encourage and motivate you to achieve it. It’s you who have to take first step towards your dream and make it your reality. Michael J. Geb says—“By stretching yourself beyond your perceived level of confidence you accelerate your level of confidence.” The only way you can achieve your dream and success is to first take some actions in that particular area in order to develop some confidence which will bring you closer towards your success and dream.
If you want to start your own business and want to live on your own terms then you have to focus on certain things.

If you will look at the problem you will not be able to find its solution. Take the total responsibility to change the direction of your life. If you are not comfortable with the current situation then forgive yourself and look for different solutions and accept the fact that no one can fix them except for you. Don’t blame others for your circumstances it will not help you and do nothing. Accept that it’s your responsibility to change your current circumstances not of others. Take appropriate decision and action to change your current circumstances. “There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.”- said by Denis Whitley.
