Do you ever think about who is responsible for where you are in life? If so, get a mirror. Do you ever wonder why you are in a job that does not fulfill you? If so get a mirror. Have you ever considered the reason that happiness eludes you? Again, go look into the nearest mirror.
There are always reasons and excuses as to why we were passed up for the promotion, why our partner left us, and why we aren’t where we would truly like to be at this time in our lives. Life after all isn’t always fair.
However, I firmly believe that we all have the ability to chart our own destiny. Unless there is a gun to your back it is you who controls your words, your actions, and your decision-making.
We have become a society that loves to blame everyone for the unfairness that has befallen us…our parents, the schools, the establishment and on it goes.
Life is a series of choices and lessons. Dr. Phil is famous for saying that, “You can’t change what you don’t acknowledge”. So, the next time you wonder who is responsible for your life, go find the nearest mirror and take a hard look at the person staring back at you. Is this person honest with himself or herself? Is this a person with whom you would like to be friends? Is this a person that you respect?
Get to really know yourself. Learn what makes you tick. Pay attention to your behavior in all situations. Make those changes that you feel need to be made. Hold yourself up to a standard that makes you feel proud of yourself. Learn to accept your shortcomings and take responsibility for your actions.
In my upcoming book, 12 Ways to Discover What Makes You Tick, I address subjects that include among others, facing your fears and conquering your demons. I talk about listening to your inner voice. I give examples and exercises to help guide you to feel confident that you have so much more control over your life than you think.
