Stop This Now
As children, we are happy to take credit when things go our way – and to deflect blame when they don’t.
“Yes, I did clean up my room – but it’s sister’s fault that it’s a mess again!”
But as we grow up, we learn to take responsibility for ourselves – for our words and actions, good or bad, and the consequences they bring.
It’s how we become well, responsible adults.
But it’s also how we liberate ourselves to achieve our full potential.
That’s right. If you’re feeling held back and unhappy about something, maybe it’s because you’re reluctant to claim your role in it.
This isn’t about blaming. Or pretending we have control over everything that happens.
It’s about acknowledging that we are responsible for what we do and for how we react to other people, things and events.
For example, which sounds more responsible and leads to a good result?
A) “I wanted to train yesterday, but the stupid gym was closed, my bike had a flat, I forgot to set my alarm, I drank some beers and now I have a hangover.”
B) “So I practiced yoga, used my weights at home, got on the bike trainer or went for a run, instead.”
We can choose to control ourselves.
We can choose to observe our reactions and improve them.
We can choose to stop pointing fingers at everyone else and stop playing the victim.
Successful, happy people create their own destinies by accepting what they can’t change (other people, places, and things) and taking responsibility for what they can (their own thoughts, words and actions).
Once we acknowledge that and really embrace it – We on our way to breaking away from fear and happily pursuing our goals.
