Accepting Personal Responsibility

Accepting Personal Responsibility For Your Actions

– That’s A Game Changer Right There!

Accepting Personal Responsibility

 

When I talk with my clients, I often hear the same things being said over and over again.

And the most common things I hear are their reasons for not achieving goals:

  • ‘but it’s not my fault’
  • ‘yes I was going to but if only this,’ or ‘if only that!’

Basically, someone or something else’s fault.

It might be the economy, the government, your friends, your family, your background, your skin colour, your race, your sexuality, your gender, etc, etc.

Well, the one thing glaringly missing from that list is…YOU!

Yes, those reasons mentioned might indeed be barriers for a lot of people and I agree that to pretend they don’t exist would be naïve for sure.

But other people have achieved great things despite those barriers, so looking at YOU as a reason really should be taking centre stage.

If you look around you right now, as you read this, the circumstances around you are the result of choices you made.

That’s right – the choices YOU made. Thoughts you had, actions you took, choices you made.

Once you accept this often difficult concept, it can be a watershed moment, because once you understand that your previous choices shaped your present, you understand equally that your future will be shaped by, yes you guessed it, your choices!

That is the game changer I talk about, because you then know that different choices will lead to different actions, which will lead to different results – the results you actually want!

That means you can take control of your outcomes, you can grab the steering wheel of your life rather than blaming it all on others.

Something else that’s important to cover, is that when I talk about stop blaming others, it’s also important to stop blaming yourself.

Yes, it can be a shock to take ownership of your current circumstances, to take the responsibility, and it might feel like you need to come down hard on yourself, since you are putting all the blame at your own door – well, it’s important you don’t blame yourself!

Hang on then, am I contradicting myself here? On one hand, I’m saying you need to accept where the responsibility really lies, but on the other, I’m saying you shouldn’t blame yourself?

Yes, that is what I’m saying, but the critical point is that this concept is all about ‘acceptance’.

Accepting responsibility is not the same as playing the blame game.

It’s not about saying ‘oh it’s all my fault, so I must be useless, I’ll never get anywhere, I might as well give up!’

No, no, no, and I’ll say it again, no!

That’s the opposite of what it’s about. The blame game is playing the negative, whereas I’m all about playing the positive, which is that understanding and taking responsibility for the past means you now know you are taking it on for your future too!

That’s exciting, because it means that what you want in life, shifts from being unattainable because of others, to being attainable because of YOU.

That’s why I call it a game changer, and I hope you agree!

 

Keep Smiling!

History Was Made Today

So, today was a really big deal over here in my country, the United Kingdom, or Great Britain as some of you will know it by. It was a day that will go down in history.

history win

A few (million) idiots voted us out of the European Union, a market of 500 million people and our biggest trading partner.

Already our currency, the pound, has tanked, dropping to it’s lowest level since I was a boy.

history

The saddest part for me – as a proud Scot – was that Scotland as a nation voted to remain in the EU. But because we are only 5 million strong and England is ten times our size, we’ve still been voted out along with the other members of the United Kingdom.

 

But I’m not going to despair. Despite the fact that right now my country is less safe, less wealthy (billions wiped of the stock market today) and less democratic, I know it will bounce back. Defeat is only temporary and our great nation will emerge from all of this possibly stronger.

After all, change is usually positive and often leads to great improvements.

But, in any case –

It serves as a fantastic example of why you need to control your own destiny and write your own history.

You all need a Plan B because ‘The Man’ ain’t always going to play ball with you.

I like to think strategically. Okay so the pound dropped like a stone today – but the value of gold shot up massively. And I’ve had a gold bullion account for a few years. So in actual fact I have made money today.

history

Also I don’t have to work for anyone else. So the economic volatility that may ensue over the next few years won’t affect me or my income too much.

So, I strongly urge you all to grasp your future with both hands and don’t rely on the ‘wisdom’ of others to look after you.

After all, there’s a big election in November right? Who’s to say what will happen then? Be in control and take that niggling worry out of the equation.

And just keep telling yourself this;

It’s not over until I win

Keep Smiling!

PS:So we know that Success is rarely a straight line right? 

But getting your business off the ground in the first place is the greatest challenge…there are so many forces weighing you down and keeping you from gaining upward momentum.
Even when you’re picking up speed and finally have enough lift to start climbing higher, there will be various challenges pulling and pushing you left and right, making it difficult to keep everything balanced and on track.
But…once you’ve reached “cruising altitude,” things get MUCH easier.
