Reading this may just piss you off! Well, there's an old saying...it's better to be pissed off than pissed on!
JUST STOP ALREADY! YES, I AM YELLING!
Stop blaming the system, stop blaming "the man" stop blaming your heredity, stop putting blame on your upbringing. Stop blaming your teachers, your ex, your children, your neighbors, your in-laws, your boss. Stop blaming your mother, she
blamed hers and look where that has gotten her!
We all have stories of things that have happened to us in our lifetime. But if you ever want to rise above and overcome those stories, you have to take a different approach. (Because the one you are taking now is not working out so great, is it?) Nobody owes you a thing, no one is coming to your rescue. You are not entitled, if you want to ever live a life that includes self-respect you must earn what you believe you deserve. You must prove to the world what you are made of. Let go of each and every one of your excuses, stop telling your stories of how you were a victim and start focusing on solutions.
You give away your power when all you do is come up with excuses and/or blame others for what you don't have. If you really want change and improvement in your life you will stop whining, stop blaming and take the reins and start steering this bitch you call your life in the direction you want it to go!
Stop looking at what other people have (the car, the job, the vacation, the life) and wishing it was yours. It does not matter how they got it, that's none of your business! Go do something, take action that will allow you to have the things you desire in your life. By the way, when I refer to taking action, I do mean within the confines of the law. If you don't like the law, then go change that. Are you allowing other people to bring fear into your life? Stop it. Are you letting your ego to keep you from things you wish you could experience? Stop it! Do you keep finding yourself in the same situation over and over because you continually use excuses? STOP IT! JUST STOP ALREADY!
Jack Canfield talks and teaches about a success principle he calls "Take 100% Responsibility" and when you can look at each and every situation in your life that has happened to you, whether you caused it, a family member caused it to happen or it was brought on by a stranger, taking 100% responsibility for the part you played in the event is where true change and evolution begins. Keep in mind, the part you played may be as simple as being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
If you want to have success in any area of your life, your finances, your education, your weight, your goals and dreams, you MUST learn to take 100% responsibility. Don't know where to begin? Here are a list of questions that will help you get to your truth. Jack Canfield suggest you have someone else ask you the questions and hold witness for your answers.
1. What is a difficult or troubling situation in your life?
2. How are you creating it or allowing it to happen?
3. What are you pretending not to know?
4. What is the payoff for keeping it like it is?
5.What would you rather be experiencing?
6. What actions will you take to create that?
7. By when will you take that action?
It's time to break the cycle. Taking 100% responsibility for your life is taking back your power. Put your big girl panties back on, strap on those ruby red slippers (or your boxers and army boots!) and step back into your power!
