Responsibility For Your Life Starts 100% With You
Responsibility for Your Life Starts 100% With You
In this article we will examine the need for you to take full responsibility for your life, the how and the why, for if you want to be truly successful you have to take 100% responsibility for everything that you experience in your life. Including the level of your achievements and the results you produce. Your interpersonal relationships, the state of your health, physical fitness, finances and your feelings, in fact everything. Isn’t it fascinating to find an overweight person trying to sue a well-known fast food outlet because eating at that company’s restaurants caused his overweight condition?
Stop Blaming and complaining
Many people have been conditioned to blame outside influences for things in their lives they don’t like. We blame our employer, our co-workers, our parents, our spouses the government and so the list carries on. We seldom look within, to do some introspection, it’s never Me, got to be ‘Them” or They“ My Father taught us that you can’t demand your rights without accepting your responsibilities. It really is time to stop looking outside of ourselves for the cause of our dissatisfactions with life and to start taking ownership regarding our future and accepting that the responsibility for what happens is entirely ours, 100%.
No More excuses
Most failures come from people who make excuses. That means, if you want to create the life of your dreams and take 100% responsibility for it, you have to get rid of all your excuses, no more victim stories, the reasons why you can’t and why you haven’t. All your blaming and complaining. Decide to give up all of these “Hold-ups” You cannot continue to go forward on the road to your success, you have to first remove all the things blocking the way. Essentially, we need to look at our daily habits and establish what is counterproductive and how to implement habits that will boost our progress, our desire to take 100% responsibility.
Your past need not be your future
Everything you have or lack in your life right now is a result of everything you’ve done or failed to do in your past, and so it stands to reason that everything you will have or lack in your future will once again depend on what you do or fail to do between now and then. A rather long winded way of saying what you sow is what you reap. And this is good news because it means you are not bound to living a meaningless unsuccessful life. You can, with some effort and a strong commitment, be responsible for the good outcomes you desire in your life. So, when someone reminds you of your past failures as you try something new, just remind them that your past does not equal your future.
Putting it all together
Decide that you are going to stop blaming, you have reached a defining moment in your life. Don’t complain about being overweight, stop eating the junk food. Stop moaning about being unfit, check with your doctor and then start an exercise program. Don’t like your job? then take action and do something about it. Stop complaining, Do something about your unhappy situation. Learn to cook healthier food, find a better job and then quit (Suggest you don’t do this the other way round) Enrol in a personal development class or get help. You either create or allow everything that happens to you, that’s why you have to remind yourself to be responsible for your life, in all situations, and that’s the bottom line of this article
