WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HEAR THAT?
Have you thought about that?
What if I would say that you are totally – as in 100% -responsible for everything that is going on in our life right now, in the past and in the future?
Ouch…it came as a slap in the face when I first realized that it is true. I am the only once responsible for my life.If I am responsible, I cannot blame anybody for anything anymore.
- 🙅♀️ cannot blame my parents for not letting me go to the school of my choice.
- 🤷♀️I cannot blame my dad for the choices I made.
- 🙆♀️I cannot blame my boyfriends for the things we did (and shouldn’t have done).
- 🤦♀️I cannot blame my husband for anything.
- 🙅♀️I cannot blame my kids for not having a career.
- 🤷♀️I cannot blame the dog, the cat, my horse…
Once I learned that, I realized that if I am responsible for every result and outcome in my life, I must not have taken a lot of responsibility for a long time.
I took a deep breath and started to take an honest look and realized that I blamed a lot of people for the circumstances I lived in – and I realized that that had kept me stuck for a long time! It was time to make some changes, especially in my thinking.
I started by forgiving all those people I thought were the stoppers, the mockers, the ones that I thought ‘kept me from succeeding’. Then I forgave myself for wasting all those precious years of handing over my power to others – and they didn’t even know it!
🙋♀️SO, WHERE ARE YOU ON THIS SUBJECT?
How responsible do you feel for the results in your life? Your family? Your career? Your health – physically and mentally? Your wealth and prosperity?
Go for a walk or sit in a quiet spot by yourself and go within. Take an honest look and write down who you blamed for so long. Forgive them, forgive yourself.
THEN, START REMINDING YOURSELF DAILY:
The buck stops here. I am 100% responsible for every result in my life. I am the absolute supreme authority over my life – past, present, and future!
