Your own odds

In many of the things you attempt, the odds will be against you. Fortunately, the odds don’t really matter.

After all, the odds were very much against you ever being born in the first place. And yet here you are.

Whether it is with your health, your wealth, your relationships, or anything else, the odds don’t determine your results. Your thoughts, actions, words, focus, commitment and persistence are what create the results you get.

You can control those things, no matter what the odds might be. Pay no attention to the odds, and direct your focus toward doing whatever is necessary to get where you wish to go.

The odds do not take your level of determination into consideration. So when it comes to what you intend to do, those odds really don’t have much meaning.

Step forward, take action, and keep going until you reach the goal you’ve chosen to reach. Make your own odds, and put them one hundred percent in your favor.
