Who is responsible for your life? Who or what is the cause of the good, bad and ugly in your life? Is it your parents, the government, the rich, politicians, your race, sex, class or is it the man in the mirror?
I can't say exactly when I took 100% responsibility for my life but it was a major turning point when I did. No it wasn't magical but I became empowered to create the best life I was capable of creating.
I was introduced and exposed to the idea of being 100% responsible for your life in books I read and listened to tape programs from a series of self help authors and speakers. I remember attending a seminar in Hawaii with Tony Robbins where he had a series of speakers on stage who overcame some of the worst adversities and disabilities imaginable and created lives that inspired others. Maybe it was then that it really hit home and I had a light bulb, Aha moment. I realized that I was blaming others for my situation and the lack of results and success in my life instead of taking full responsibility. I decided that I would never again give away my power or believe that others were responsible for my life.
So I suggest you take on the belief that you are indeed 100% responsible for all the good, bad and ugly in your life and you can create more good and less bad and and hopefully very little or no ugly if you choose to.
So if it's to be it's up to me. I am 100% responsible for my life and you should be 100% responsible for yours...
