The Buck Stops Within - Accept Responsibility for your Success: "We often hear the famous quote “The Buck Stops Here”, but how does that apply to your endeavor to succeed in life and in business?
When you get down to the nitty gritty of success in any area, it is everything! First of all, you must accept the fact that wherever you are in business, relationships, spiritual life or health, is a result of the choices you have made in your life. You may not have chosen the specific destination, but the choices you made along the way, have placed you exactly where you are today.
We live in a blame society, everyone wants to blame someone else for pretty much everything. This blame trend is actually disintegrating empowerment in people’s lives. No one is in control of someone else unless that person allows it to happen. "
You can only accomplish total success when you are willing to accept responsibility for yourself.
So what areas do we accept responsibility for? Very simple, everything.
1) Be responsible for every thought: Everything begins with a thought. Thoughts lead to feelings, feelings lead to actions and actions lead to results or the lack of results. So first of all, take total responsibility for what you are thinking. Your conscious mind only knows what the subconscious mind tells it. So control your thoughts, keep them positive, focused and clean of anything destructive.
2) Be responsible for your feelings or emotions: What you attract into your life is what you give energy to, or what you give emotion to. Emotion is what drives the Law of Attraction. Emotions are also what brings trouble into lives, so until you control your emotions, you will never have control over your life and your results.
3) Be responsible for your actions: Any action has a reaction. In every area of your life, if you do not control your actions then you have no control over the reaction. If you are controlling your thoughts, that will assist in controlling your emotions and in turn, the appropriate action should be easier for you to control.
4) Be responsible for your results: Everything you have in your life, everything you are in your life, everything you will ever have or will be is entirely up to you.
Take control and full responsibility for these 4 areas of your life and you will find that tomorrow will not be the same as today. The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing, expecting different results. In order to change the path you may be on at this time, you must accept responsibility for yourself.
I am certain you will be amazed at how enlightening it is when you focus on being responsible for yourself. We will talk at another time about letting the past go, but I must add briefly.
Once you accept responsibility for your past, you must let it go. It has no affect on where you will be in the future, unless you let it control you.
In the meantime, make it a great day, you deserve it.
