Do you ever feel a victim? Worried about who might be lurking in a dark corner to get you or is someone making you feel bad? Turn the mirror on yourself, this is your issue, not anything outside of yourself (except if you are in a war zone or a really dangerous situation). It is so easy to become a victim of yourself, the scary world out there is your perception of the world, and this perception is not necessarily shared by everyone else. The most dangerous and destructive person in your life is potentially YOU! (well more precisely your subconscious mind).
Your future is not determined by what happens to you but is determined by what you do about what happens.
If you have the habit of blaming the state of the world, the government, other people and situations around you that you have no control over, it is like saying the sun is too hot, the rain too wet and the soil is too dirty – but that is all you’ve got. You cannot curse all you have got. Until you can find yourself another planet to live on and re-design it all yourself you need to work with what you have got.
The situations and people around you are what you have got and that is what you have to work with.
Take charge of your own life and walk away from the other 97% who use their excuses to stop themselves moving forward.
Take advice, but not orders. Only give yourself orders. Abraham Lincoln once said – “Since I will be no one’s slave, I will be no one’s master.”
To live an amazing life you must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. You are in charge of yourself. You are in charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes.
Your pay is not your employer’s or customer’s responsibility, it’s your responsibility. You are paid for your value to them or to the market. Add value, add income. Add positive empowering learnings and you will grow in the right direction. Towards massive success!
