Give Yourself The Greatest Gift
By Christopher Green
Imagine if you could give yourself the best gift ever. A gift that would bring success, happiness and abundance into your life, not just temporarily, but for the rest of your living years.
Would you be interested in having such a gift? Hmm, let me guess! The good news is that YOU CAN. The gift I'm talking about is personal responsibility. Let me share with you precisely why this gift is the best you will ever receive!
When you decide to take personal responsibility for your whole life, a remarkable series of reactions takes place. All of these reactions increase your personal power.
Acceptance is the first, crucial reaction. You accept that where you are right now is all your doing. No longer will you blame anyone else for your current situation or list excuses such as bad luck or lack of opportunity. Blame and excuses are heavy baggage and they do not bring success. Acceptance will help you abandon them for good.
In accepting full responsibility for your current situation, you also accept that where you'll be in a year or 5 years is also down to you. You chose the paths to the destination you're at right now. Therefore, you can choose better paths to lead you to a greater destination.
Acceptance leads to the realization that you have the power to change your life for the better. So exercise your power: Choose what you want to do with your life. Choose where you want your life to take you. Choose to be the person you truly want to be. Choose to live life the way YOU want to live it. Spend time thinking about all of the above and commit your ideas to paper. Don't let the whims and fears of others guide you in this. Only YOU can be the person you want to be.
Be in total control of what you allow your mind to be exposed to. If you listen to people who live life craving for security, you will take on board their fears. So be responsible for your own education. You"ve found this article so you're already taking steps to fill your mind with positive information to help you achieve your ambitions. Resolve to make this an ongoing process.
I was once told "if you don't take responsibility for what enters your mind, you risk allowing others to educate you. And they may not have your best interests at heart." Think about this. It is so important to take responsibility for what you allow into your mind. Eliminating negative inputs and focusing instead on positive, life-enhancing feeds which take you closer to your goals is vital.
Taking personal responsibility is a big step - somewhat frightening initially. No more crutches to lean on, no more "I could"ve been something if only...", no more hand holding from well meaning but misguided souls who fuel your fears and stop you from taking action. From this moment on, accept that you are the Captain of your ship. You plot the course, you select the landmarks and ports you need to stop at en route to the final destination: the real you who lives your dream life.
Personal responsibility means you give yourself the power to command. Yes, it means you will make mistakes as you learn to become the master of your destiny. But don't let fear stop you from taking command. Seize it. Plan. Act. Learn. Plan. Act. Learn. Refuse to be blown off course. Resolve everyday that no matter what happens, you will handle it and overcome it. And you will learn from experience and use it all as stepping stones towards your destiny.
Look at it this way: the world is full of people who do the same things week in, week out. Through no fault of their own, they will never ever achieve their full potential because they"ve been educated to conform. Why be like everyone else when you can be the unique, inspired and fulfilled person living life on YOUR terms instead of the terms of the masses?
The world is crying out for your special talents. Why keep it waiting any longer?
