Become the MASTER of Your Life!

Master: a leader; a person with the ability or power to use control; a person who is in command; a victor or conqueror; to rule or direct, to triumph over or to OVERCOME.

Who is in control of you? Are you aware of the fact that the majority of human beings are controlled by there environment? Our surroundings have a direct impact on our emotions, our emotions trigger thoughts in our minds, and the thoughts in our minds send signals through our bodies which cause us to do what we do. So in reality most of us are controlled by what we see in our environment, rather then what our environment sees in us. A true leader is not controlled by his environment, and neither by his emotions. A true leader is controlled only by his mind, and a great leader fills his mind with wisdom, knowledge, compassion, and understanding.

Our bodies are designed to do what our brains tell it to do. Whenever we make a single movement, first our minds must send a signal to our bodies telling us its time to make a move. But what happens when we’re feeling tired or lazy? And even though we know in our minds what needs to be done, our bodies tell our minds “I don’t feel like it right now.” This is an example of our body being in control of our mind. Until we overcome this battle within we will never become the master’s of our lives.

Is it hard to believe that your life can be very simple? Well it can, but only when you’re the master of it. That isn’t to say that some tasks will not be difficult, but the plans we make to reach our goals are usually simple plans to follow. When we are in complete control of our lives there is absolutely nothing we cannot accomplish. As long as we have a plan that has been tested and proven to work then we can do it. There is a pathway to any destination that you desire to take over and make your own. As long as we stay committed, consistent, and we stick to our plan of attack, then we can do anything. Although many things will be challenging, nothing will be impossible for you.


Weight loss can be a difficult task, but why is that? There are only two simple rules we need to abide by in order to permanently get rid of the fat from our bodies. Rule number one is “what you eat,” we need to cut out junk food, salt, sugar, oil, and eat well balanced meals. We need to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with two snacks in between those meals. Rule number two is “exercise,” we should be doing 30minutes to an hour of cardio 2-4 days a week, along with weight training on each individual body part. That’s it!!! Seems like a pretty simple plan right, so why is it that we seem to fail at it time and time again? The answer is because our bodies are in control of our minds, rather then our minds being in control of our bodies.

Every time we resist the temptation that tries to lead us off course, we give our minds more of the control. Every time our bodies say “NO, I don’t feel like it” but our mind say “YES, this needs to be done” we win the battle within. We need to listen to what we know is right, and by doing so, our minds gain more control over our bodies. This is an exercise in itself, but once you’ve given your mind complete control, the possibilities are endless, and you WILL become the master of your life.

The mind is the only muscle in the body that has no limits to its growth. So the next time you plan to go to the gym, or you choose not to eat that piece of cake, even though your body says otherwise, remember that you are exercising the power of the mind. You are becoming the master of your life. You are no longer apart of the 95% of people who allow there environment to control who they are. You are now joining the 5% of people who are not controlled by there environment, who know who they are, and most importantly, who know who they’ll become.

About the Author

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Frank Cruz. I am a former fat man who’s almost completely unleashed. I had an appetite that could not be satisfied. Four years ago I stepped on the scale, and was blown away when I saw the shocking number: 298. On January 1st, 2009 I decided to make a real change and I mean, mind, body, and soul. From that day forth I was on a mission to lose this weight. Something switched deep in my subconscious; I saw myself like a new man. That’s when the real change began, when my mind and soul won the battle over my body. Today I invite you to join me on a mission to transform your lives. This is truly a difficult task, but one that can be accomplished. I know how to do this; I have the road map to success!! Come and join me, and you too can be UNLEASHED.

    Man, you hit it on the head!! Emotions are a mutha! I’m struggling through this now and it’s as simple as strengthening my mind, which is an everyday exercise by itself.

    • Frank CruzNo Gravatar says:

      Exatly Mike, and nice to meet you by the way. But it’s not a simple thing to do. However just like everything else in this world, practice makes perfect. Thank you for reading Be Blessed.

  2. JayNo Gravatar says:

    This is really inspiring. So much in life is determined by mental control…even the neurochemicals that signal is to lose or gain fat. I think that simplicity in life is key. If you can achieve calm and rational thought, you can achieve a simple life. An unsound mind truly breeds an unsound body.

    Yes I a gree with you that the true leader is someone who can control by himself not enviroment. But That is not simple like that. Need really effort to control ourselves, not influenced by outside.

    • Frank CruzNo Gravatar says:

      Yes exactly. This is not a simple thing to do people. This is an everyday battle against ourselves. Thank you for reading Be Blessed.

    Seriously, your blog has really helped me, I have real trouble motivating myself and I think once you get into routine that is not healthy for you it can be really tough to get out. Cheers again.

    • Frank CruzNo Gravatar says:

      Nice to meet you Stephen!1 I’m glad to hear that my blog helped motivate you. Breaking our normal routine is a big challenge, but it’s one that can be accomplished. Thank you for reading Be Blessed.

  5. Good post, i find determination to complete what you are trying to achieve is probably the most important part, but there are always distractions which lead you away. Try to think of a way to re-focus when this happens, inspirational photos, rewards, exercise? There’s loads you can try, just find what works for you,

    all the best,

    Good article.

    Something that I find useful is to think of the mind as seperate to our actual being.

    Why do I do this?

    Well yes our mind controls each aspect of our being, but it can also be somewhat troublesome when it holds onto ideas and beliefs which it has accrued from past experience, ideas and beliefs that may not necessarily be true and are derived entirely from out perception of things back then.

    Some of these mental forumulations may lead to low self esteem and lack of self belief – both classic attributes of people who shy away from leadership roles.

    When we understand that our minds can also be troublesome, and recognise the issues that it can create, a process of mindfulness can be used to good effect.

    This basically involves seeing thoughts as items on a conveyer belt – as each thought comes in, you can keep the positives and do something about the negative thoughts which may have been holding you back.

    It’s a very powerful technique that does require work and persistence but the results can be worth it when over time you begin to realise where you may have been selling yourself short.

    I do need a little more mind control, I know deeple what I want and need, and put myself last. But I am working on projects that I love to do and I am seeing some results but I am on the right track. Money is tight since me and my husband is both laid off. so now I am using my expertise as a mother and entrepreneur to help other moms.

    • Frank CruzNo Gravatar says:

      Hello Julie!! It’s great to meet you. I am happy to hear you are giving such wonderfull service to your community, and I pray that you continue on that quest. Remember givers alway get more then takers. Thank you for reading Be Blessed.

    I strongly believe with what you said. I think ever person is capable of achieveing anything. The only trick is they have to conquer there mind to be able to do so. The best value I feel people can invest their time in to solve any of their problems is to work on controlling their mind to being able to control their life.
