When something happens in your life, especially something you find less than desirable, do you look at your part, or do you find yourself blaming others?
I want to challenge you to get really honest. Do you say, “Ok, that was a bad call; I’m sorry.” or “No way. It was someone else’s fault.”
When you don’t take responsibility for yourself and your life, you put yourself in a victim role. If it is always someone else’s fault, you are not empowered—you are just a victim of what others are doing.
You may not even be aware that you are rocking a false belief that someone else in the driver’s seat of your life. Although you cannot control anyone else, you can always take responsibility for how you respond to a situation. Believing someone else can make or break your happiness or success is simply inaccurate.
The first step to creating your own happiness is to take full responsibility for your life, good and bad. And when you do, people will respect you, and, more importantly, you will respect you. When you find yourself repeating an old script, “if only so and so had done such and such…” stop talking, take a deep breath, and reframe.
Awareness is the first step to changing behavior. Taking ownership of all of your decisions is the only way to create the extraordinary life you deserve.
I am straight up asking you if you take personal responsibility. Drop a comment; let’s discuss!
I hope you have an amazing week and, as always, take care of you.
