In life it's gonna be very easy for you to blame everybody, but there's one person that's gonna know that you didn't take responsibility and that's you. That's a tough one to live with.
Change! Stop being a victim. Stop saying you have to wait for good things to happen to you. Instead, say "I'm going to fight. I'm going to work. I'm going to press forward. I'm going to learn. I'm going to do everything in my power every single day. I'm going to do everything in my power to become a victor, not a victim."
One of the greatest myths that's pervasive in our culture today is that you're entitled to a great life and that somehow somewhere someone is responsible for filling our lives with continual happiness, exciting career options, a nurturing family and blissful personal relationships simply because we exist.
But the real truth is that there's only one person responsible for the quality of your life and that person is you!
In life we're all born with either an advantage or disadvantage. We either started with too much or we started with too little. Then basically you know your internal fortitude decides if that was good or bad. Did you hear me - YOU decide if that was bad or good!
You only have three things you can control in your life:
- the thoughts you think
- the images you visualize
- the actions you take.
How you use those three things determines everything you experience. So if you don't like what you're experiencing or what you're producing as results in your life, you have to change your mental, your visual, and your behavioral responses to the events that occur in your life.
It does not matter where you come from.
You can walk out of the desert, walk across the sand, being born the most dire of circumstances. It doesn't matter what your mom did, whether your father had a PhD. What matters is now - this moment and your willingness to see this moment for what it is accept it, forgive the past, take responsibility and move forward.
That is the difference in how your life works out. It's not what happens, it's what you do.
Here's one one of the questions you should ask your self! Starting tomorrow, what are you going to do that'll make a change in your life's direction now?
If you don't do something starting tomorrow that'll make a difference, guess what? It's gonna be the same. See, that way you can guess what the next five years are gonna be like - look at the last five! Because the next five are gonna be like the last five unless you made your change tomorrow.
If you don't like what you're experiencing or what you're producing as results in your life, you have to change your mental, your visual, and your behavioral responses to the events that occur in your life.
All successful people take full responsibility for the thoughts they think, the images they visualize, and the actions they take. They don't waste their time and energy on blaming and complaining.
They evaluate their experiences and decide if they need to change them or not. They face the uncomfortable and they take risks in order to create the life that they want to live.
The brilliant insight that changes everything for people is realizing that responsibility is never given, it's taken. And if you choose to take responsibility all these doors open up and you get a totally different life in exchange.
Next time you have a loss, the next time you have a break up, next time someone hurts you, instead of blaming the world take a piece of paper and take responsibility.
- What did I learn from this?
- What can I do better?
- What bad habits do I have that keep showing up?
- What bad friends do I have that keep showing up?
Then make a decision to stop it now and not blame everybody. If you decide to do that, don't be surprised how your life changes drastically - into a positive one!
