Don’t Let Your Heredity Stop Your Destiny
Recently I heard somebody say, “Don’t let your heredity stop your destiny.” In other words, don’t let the way somebody treated you or what they did or didn’t give you keep you from pressing forward and becoming all that you deserve to be. Your family who raised you may have had addictions, but that doesn’t have to be your future. You can be the one to break that negative cycle. Your parents may have had health issues or were overweight, but you don’t have to keep letting that curse be passed from generation to generation. You can be the one to say, “No more. This is a new day! I may have had an unfair past, but I’m not going to have an unfair future. I am not going to let my heredity stop my destiny.”
Have you heard someone and maybe even yourself say something like? “I am big boned so I won’t be able to lose the weight.” “My mother or father was heavy so this is just how it’s going to be for me.” “My mother died prematurely of cancer so I am not going to have a long life.” “My father and mother got divorced so I’m never going to be able to have a stable relationship.” Of course, you have. It’s natural for people to try and predict or forecast their futures based on their family history and their heredity. But that doesn’t mean it has to be your destiny.
You can rewrite your story. Look at Oprah Winfrey for example. I had the privilege and honor to meet Oprah about a decade ago with my dear friend Colin Cowie 80th birthday party here in Los Angeles. She radiated positivity, passion, and love for life. Oprah grew up in a very poor and unstable home where her problems were compounded because she was sexually abused, starting at age nine, by men that others in her family trusted. We have all watched her battle with gain and loss for over 30 years. And in spite of all of these challenges, she is arguably has become one of the most influential people in the world. I’m sure you’ve heard of “The Oprah Effect”, anything that she touches or endorses turns to gold or becomes a success. It’s true her influence expands worldwide.
My friend please take control of your life today and “Don’t Let Your Heredity Stop Your Destiny!” It’s never too late. I believe in you and know you’ve got what it takes to be your best self.
