Take 100% Responsibility For Your Life Starting Today

Believe, Believe, Believe!
   Have unwavering faith in yourself, for good or bad. Make the decision to accept the fact that you create all your experiences. You will experience successes thanks to you, and you will experience pain, struggle and strife thanks to you. Sounds a little strange right? but accepting this level of responsibility is uniquely empowering. It means you can do, and be everything. Stumbling blocks become just that-little hills to hop over.

Take no less than 100% responsibility.
   Successful people take full responsibility for the thoughts they think, the images they visualize, and the action they take. They don't waste their time and energy blaming and complaining. They evaluate their experiences and decide if they need to change them or not. They face the uncomfortable and take risks in order to create the life they want to live.

Stop complaining
   Look at what you are complaining about. I'm fat. I'm tired. I can't get out debt. I won't ever get a better job. I can't stand the relationship with my sister. I'l never find soul-mate in life. Really examine your complaints. More than likely you can do something about them. They are not about other people, other things or other events. They are about YOU.

Make an immediate change.
   Are you unhappy about something that is happening now? Make requests that will make it more desirable to you, or take the steps to change yourself. Making a change might be uncomfortable for you. It might mean you have to put in more time, money and effort. It might mean that someone gets upset about it, or make you feel bad about your decision. It might be difficult to change or leave a situation, but staying put is your choice so why continue to complaint?
   You can either do something about it or not. It is your choice and have responsiblity for your choices.

Pay attention!
   Looking to others for help and guidance id helpful, but don't forget to stay tuned in to yourself - your behavior, attitude and life experiences. Identify what's working and what isn't. If you need to, write it all down.

Face the truth and take action for the long term.
   You have to be willing to change your behavior if you want a different outcome. You have to be willing to take risks necessary to get what you want. If you've already taken an initial step in the right direction, now's the time to plan additional steps to keep moving you forward, faster.
   Isn't it a great relief to know that you can make your life what you want it to be? Isn't it wonderful that your successes do not depend on someone else?

   If you need just one thing to do different today, than you did yesterday, make it this: Commit to taking 100% responsibility for every aspect of your life. Decide to make changes, one step at a time. Once you start the process you'll discover it's much easier to get what you want by taking control of your thoughts, your visualizations and your actions.
