It’s not their fault. It’smy responsibility.
If I’m not moving forward, what’s stopping me is me. That’s good news, because it means I’m in control of my own destiny.
If I continue to blame and complain and procrastinate and make excuses, I’ll continue to be disappointed with the way my life unfolds. When I’m ready to stop all that, and when I really do, and when I choose to be responsible for it all, I will change my outlook for the better.
It is difficult and uncomfortable to take full responsibility for your life and your world. The only thing that’s even more difficult is to not take that responsibility, and to live with the regret.
Yes, there are many things we cannot control, and most of the difficult challenges are not our fault. Even so, if we wish to create real fulfillment, the way to do so is by taking responsibility anyway.
This is MY life, MY opportunity, and MY universe of beautiful possibilities. I’m going totake responsibility for it all, no matter what, and make it into a magnificent and increasingly joyful experience.
