This is Day 2 of our 10 day 2016 transformation series where we are going to put 100% responsibility of your life and your success in YOUR hands.
What do you think is the primary thing holding you back from having the success and life of your dreams? Is it your boss? Your lack of money? Your education? Your gender or race? Your family or spouse?
If you believe that your failure to succeed or achieve the life of your dreams is the result of someone or something else other than yourself then you are wrong. It’s easy to blame someone else, but then you are giving them 100% control and power over your destiny. This just isn’t reality.
Take 100% Responsibility: For Things To Change You Must Change
We are our biggest obstacle and our best friend. While we may not be able to control 100% of things that happen to us, we are in control of how we allow those things to impact us. We can allow those external causations to victimize us or EMPOWER us and propel us forward. (Victimization will NEVER serve you!) When we learn how to get out of our own way, the path of success will become much clearer.
YOU are the biggest obstacle in achieving the life and success you want and are meant for. This means you have 100% control over your situation. This puts complete, 100% power in YOUR hands to change your life. No one else but YOU can change your life. Taking 100% ownership of your life is the first step toward changing your life.
My Story of Taking 100% Responsibility For My Life
Back in my early 20’s my life had become unmanageable and I knew I was not the person I wanted to be, nor was I living the life I was meant for. The obstacle in my path was substance abuse. I quickly lost everything in my one year daily use and I couldn’t shake my addiction by myself. So I checked myself into a 30 day residential drug rehab program. While I took 100% ownership of my addiction, I blamed my family, other people and outside circumstances as my reasons to escape my reality through my addiction. Once I finally took 100% responsibility for my actions and choices through the amazing 12 Step Program a whole new world of possibility and opportunity opened up to me! I realized I didn’t have to be what others thought I should be. In fact, I had a responsibility (to myself and others I was meant to positively impact) to become all I could possibly be. I had a CHOICE to be the person I wanted to become and I didn’t have to try to control other people either.
As I started to live my life taking 100% ownership of my decisions and living a life of complete honesty to myself and others, I become EMPOWERED! This was and is such a freeing experience. I am able to CHOOSE WHO I want in my life, even family. (Weed the people who bring you down and don’t make you want to be a better person.) I am able to accept others for who they are and where they are. In fact, acceptance of myself and others gives me greater understanding and empathy for the path others have chosen for themselves. But, starting that one day at Starting Point Rehab Center, my life took a new course for the better that changed my life…one that I choose on MY terms.
Taking 100% responsibility for my life has brought be so much joy, blessings, opportunities and a feeling of freedom that I want this for every person who desires this for themselves! Not only do I want to help help others achieve the same, I have a responsibility to carry this message of freedom and help those who want to have a life of success and abundance like I have found. (12th step of the 12 Step Program.)
One more note, I truly believe that the universe works FOR us and not against us. As you start to consistently work these success principles each day a whole new life of abundance will begin to open up for you. Remember this. The personal work you undergo will most likely be the most difficult you’ve ever done. But, I promise you, it will be the most rewarding work and will positively impact your life and the lives of others for generations to come.
