You are responsible for your own life. It’s the truth. No matter how hard you want to believe that there’s someone else out there pulling the strings. No matter how hard you want to listen to the media, or your FB friends telling you that some company or politician or governmental agency is the reason you’re in the place you’re in…it’s not true. You are responsible for the life you are currently leading. Good or bad.
Now I know that probably makes some of you feel uneasy. Because now, the only one you can blame for the situation you find yourself in, is you. If you’re in a crappy job, making crappy money, living in a crappy house, with a crappy spouse (little Dr. Seuss there)…it’s your own fault. You have created the life you are living. But, instead of feeling uneasy about that, can you just for a moment consider what that means? Because you are responsible for your own life, that means…
You can do whatever you want with it.
Now how do you feel? My guess is, IF you grasped the awesomeness of that statement, you’re feeling a bit excited.
The problem is, most don’t grasp the awesomeness. Most listen to the media and their FB friends and believe that the government, or big pharma, or large corporations, or rich people are all dictating how their life is going to go, and are all trying to hold them down. In other words, most people are spending all their time and energy focusing on the things that they feel are preventing them from being happy or succeeding. Most are fighting against what they don’t want (we’ve talked about this before…). AND,
they’re waiting for someone to come make it better.
My question then is, how’s that working out for you?
The only person that can make your life better is you. How, you ask? You choose. You stand up and choose for yourself. You let go of thinking someone else is responsible for making you happy. You choose to live a prosperous life. You choose to live in a wonderful house. You choose to follow the governments or companies you believe in. You choose to find something good in everything you see. You choose to love as much as possible. You choose to be kind. You choose to be joyful.
You choose to be responsible for your own life.
