It’s true you have the power to do anything you want to do, to achieve anything you want and to live the life you want to live. I believe that we are each responsible for our own destiny, that it’s entirely up to us and us alone to make the life we want.
Oh my god! When i was 1st told this i was livid. I was so angry that someone had told me this. I mean how could i be responsible for my life when i had been bullied, when my mum had died, when my sister had died, when i had had to go through so much why was i responsible? Surely these incidences were the reasons i was unhappy, unconfident and unsuccessful. I blamed these things for me not going out there and getting what i wanted because i pitted myself hugely. I wanted other people to pity me. To feel sorry for me and to know how much all these things had hurt me. Mostly i wanted to believe my lack of what i wanted from life was down to something other than me. I wanted to believe it was down to the things that had happened to me and i was in no way responsible. By doing this i was giving away my power. I was allowing myself to stay stuck with now way out.
I am not responsible for the actions of others or for the circumstances that happen to others. What i was and am responsible for is how i choose to deal with these things and how i let them effect me. That choice is mine. That choice is not in the hands of anyone else but me.
Once i realised this i was able to start making changes to my life, the way i think and feel about myself, the way i moved forward and ultimately how i achieve my goals. All of this takes time. I’m not suggesting it’s as easy as licking a switch and then BOOM your world changes forever but if you don’t take responsibility you may end up feeling hurt, sad and alone your whole life.
I believe we’re here to be happy for as much of this journey as we can. Taking the power back and knowing that you are the one on control is the best step i believe anyone can make in leading a happy. healthy and prosperous life.
You can do and be anything you want. Please never stop believing that.
Love to you all,
