Today I’m thinking about personal responsibility.
It’s important to know that you are the source of your experience.
From the energy that you are putting out into the world and calling experiences back to you, to the way you process sensory information and perceive the world around you. You are creating your experience every moment of every day.
Make the choice to be accountable for all of your actions and experiences.
Realize that life is your own creation and that you are in control of your destiny. It’s not up to anyone else to make you happy and your dreams come true. It’s all on you (You are not alone. The Universe has got your back and is lining up all kinds of people to help you as we speak).
With accountability comes great personal power, freeing you from resentment and helplessness that may have hindered you in the past. The result is a lasting sense of certainty and self-confidence, which you bring to every area of your life.
Take ownership of your life, decide what you will have and watch it unfold before you.
Is there any part of your life that you aren’t taking full responsibility for?
How can you tell?
A few of the most obvious indicators are blaming,shaming or complaining. I used to complain about my job all time. I couldn’t stand my boss, the way things were set up,and some if the people I worked with. Nothing lived up to my expectations. I bitched and moaned all the time. I was the queen of blaming and shaming. Everyone else was wrong and not living up to my expectations.
Boy, was I miserable!
Then I realized that hey- it’s my life and it’s not up to anyone else but me to make it better. It wasn’t my jobs fault that I was miserable.No one was making me miserable but me. I was miserable because I was choosing to stay in a job that wasn’t a good fit for me. With that realization came great freedom.
The more I took ownership of my life, the more I realized that my whole experience was based on the way I was looking at things. I read the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and stopped taking things so personally.
Where are you blaming, shaming and complaining about things?
What’s your role in creating that situation?
