I often hear people complain about the kind of life they live. I have also done the same too in the past. Blaming very genuine life situations, circumstances, and people. The reasons are genuine, rationally speaking. But as I have grown and over the years, I have realised that passing blames never gets anyone far, but rather gives an upper hand to another to dictate the outcome of your life.
Learning from this, I have also come to accept that to a large extent, the outcome of a man’s life is greatly dependent on him/herself. By this I mean, what that individual truly wants from life and is actively working towards.
No doubt, there will be genuine reasons to blame something or someone else at every time, but if you really want to go forward and live your dreams, you must be willing to take responsibility for your life.
Taking responsibility means accepting that you are responsible for how your life has turned out and deciding to make the necessary changes required of you. To doing this, try out the following:
Take charge of your emotions
Emotions are so fickle and unreliable and hence you must not base the judgement of your life on them. That you feel weak doesn’t mean you are weak, neither does feeling like a failure make you a failure. Gather inner strength and make a decision to change the outcome of your life
Start from where you are right now
Ask yourself, what is that one thing I can do to move my life forward in the direction I truly desire? What direction can I change my life to that will truly make me happy? What do I need to stop doing? What should I start doing?
Make a Move
Making plans is good, but execution is much better. Having taken responsibility, planned on what to do, move. Take those actions. Take a step, make a move.
Taking responsibility is much more than mere words.It is about definite actions and steps that you need to start doing. There is so much on your inside yearning for expression. Make the move, change the narrative and live your best life.
