Did you know that people who take 100% responsibility for their lives are the happiest and most successful people on the planet? Why? Because they embody the full realization that every single thing that happens to them is a result of their own thoughts, family lineage or point of attraction.
To many, this concept might seem like crazy-talk, but the fact is, science has proven over and over the existence of the observer effect, which means that a particle behaves based on the expectations of the observer. Those are particles. If you zoom out, the theory applies to our whole life—as a matter of fact, it’s why mainstream pharmaceutical studies use double-blind testing, because if the doctor knows which dose is the placebo, the results for the patient are skewed.
Your thoughts create your life, but more importantly, the feelings that result from your thoughts have an even more profound effect on what shows up for you. Your feelings are the mechanism the Unconscious Mind uses to guide you through life.
I’m sure you’ve had a ‘gut’ feeling about something or someone—those who have learned to listen are able to develop a very high-functioning intuition.
But how do you control your feelings—especially during stress or strife?
First, allow yourself to feel your feelings fully. Listen to what they’re trying to tell you. Sometimes, it’s natural to feel sad, or angry or frustrated. By running away from your feelings, or ignoring them, you’re putting off the message they have for you. It’s always best to pay attention now. (Trust me, I waded through 4 years in a super-toxic relationship because I ignored my gut-feelings at the beginning.)
Next, you can use your thoughts to create a better-feeling state. Realizing that everyone is doing the best they can with the tools they have, is a good place to start.
It’s astonishing just how much of our negative thought processes are born out of judgment toward others. We mistakenly hold other people to our own standard of living. The trap is that A) it’s none of your business B) you can’t possibly walk in another’s shoes, because there are literally 7 billion perspectives on any given situation based on each individual’s past, belief systems, culture, and family lineage. I hate to break it to ya, but there is no one right way.
The moment you let go of judgment over another, your own feelings of Goodness and Love will increase exponentially. Minding your own fences is a great way to live.
Taking 100% Responsibility for your own circle of influence—meaning that which you have control over, such as your own thoughts, your own opinions, your own actions, your own consequences and your own belief systems—will shift your life in a profound way. You’ll feel more peace immediately (managing other people’s lives is hard and frustrating work!), and you’ll find tons of free time and energy to mind your own life, which will make you more productive—the results of which are astonishing.
Taking 100% Responsibility means taking your Power back. You get to choose the life you want to live—make it a great one.
