Don’t Blame: Take Responsibility for YOU
Life is about being brave enough to take responsibility for the life you’ve chased, consciously or subconsciously.
Long before I knew better I played the “Blame Game.” I delayed claiming responsibility for where I was physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I shifted the blame on others for work I wasn’t getting or places I wasn’t going in my career. I had not yet realized it was all about me getting off my tush and creating what I wanted out of life. I needed to look at how I was contributing to my life or not contributing to my life to have what I wanted out of it. I took a moment to sit still and focus on the inner workings of me, asking myself brave questions like, “Why do I react to _____ that way?” or “How can I change the dynamics of work to suit me better?”. This was a new perspective I learned.
The reality is that nothing ever changed outside of me. I needed to change how I felt and start seeing my life with new eyes.
Taking responsibility as a contributor to everyday outcomes was the wisest most humbling experience thus far.
There’s nothing worse than NOT living the life you dream of because of the belief that someone, other than yourself, is stopping it from happening. Whether blaming someone for what they’ve done or what they didn’t do, the jig is up. Let’s claim our part in it all. Do you? Are you ready to own who you are? Do you like who you are? How can you be a better person? Important questions to not only ask but answer and if you don’t love your answer, let’s do something about it.
