... But It's Not My Fault

Sunday, February 02, 2014

"Stop being a victim of your own circumstances." - Steve Maraboli

You, yes, you! You as in the person reading this. Just stop it right now! Say the following out loud: "My life is a result of my choices. My choices are my responsibility. If I want things to change, I will change them." Ah... Take a moment to think about what you've just said. How do the words make you feel? Better? Worse? The Same?

Stop all the complaining. Seriously just stop doing it. Every single time we start complaining, we give away our happiness and peace of mind. We spin our own wheels and remaining stuck in place. How will we continue on our journey if we are stuck in place?

You know what else often accompanies complaining? The blame game... Say the following out loud: "My life is a result of my choices. My choices are my responsibility. If I want things to change, I will change them." How do the words make you feel? Better? Worse? The Same?

Stop playing the blame game. Seriously just stop doing it. We are responsible for 100% of our life. We may not like that statistic, but it doesn't change it. Our life is our responsibility and what we make of it. Every single time we start the blame game, we give away our power. We spin our own wheels and remain stuck in place. How will we continue on our journey if we are stuck in place?

Yes, it is scary to know that this is all our responsibility! Yes, the only thing we can control is our reactions and responses to what we do and how we handle it. We are in control of ourselves and responsible for our life. Now say the following out loud: "My life is a result of my choices. My choices are my responsibility. If I want things to change, I will change them."
