I AM Responsible
Does that send shudders down your back? Does it take you back to your childhood when you’d created havoc and your mother is standing over you saying ‘whose responsible for this?!’ (But wasn’t it fun?)
I don’t suppose you’d add it to your affirmation list either (which, if the words fill you with dread, I don’t think you should!) Affirmations are positive, feel-good statements – but you already know that.
By now you know you create your own reality, although you’re probably just focusing on what you haven’t got rather than how are’re getting there. In fact, you created what you’ve created what you’re living now, too! And, I’m very much afraid that what got you to where you are now, is not going to get you to where you’ve got to be.
At the risk of being boring, but to establish firm ground, our thoughts and feelings are creating our lives. Yes even the bits we don’t like. What’s going on inside is creating what goes on outside. We cannot change anything in our outside world.
My tag-line is ‘Nothing changes until you do’.
I’ve been told by the marketing-men in my life that that is enough to fill you with horror too. ‘Change! I don’t want to change. I want them to change’ we all say.
But I’m afraid the system of the law of attraction doesn’t work like that. The law of attraction only, and always responds to you.
To get where we want to be we have to practice, what I call, the 5 Rs and the first R is for Responsibility.
The basic starting point, is to accept the Responsibility for where you are in your life right now.
You are where you are for a reason. You are always creating of your life, moment by moment, whether it’s deliberate or not. You may not consciously know why you are where you are, but some part of you in your subconscious mind, does know.
As soon as we can accept that we are solely responsible for our lives, the better. No matter what we chose to think and feel, we can’t blame others for the choices we’ve made.
Accepting responsibility also means not feeling sorry for ourselves for the rough deal we’ve been handed, by taking hold of your life and giving it direction and reason,
The whole process of transforming our life to one of happiness and abundance begins with accepting the responsibility. Accepting the responsible is the first step in becoming empowered to create and experience a life that can be truly defined by you; a life that carries meaning and love.
If you want to create a better life, then first you must accept total responsibility for your life.
Next week, I’ll introduce you to the second of the 5Rs.
And always remember that the steps of getting there are the qualities of being there.
