“A sign of wisdom and maturity is when you come to terms with the realization that your decisions cause your rewards and consequences. You are responsible for your life, and your ultimate success depends on the choices you make.”
Everything we do in life is a choice, and sometimes we forget that. What ae often do not seem to realise is that everything we do not do in life is also a choice. Every day we choose to do some things and to not do other things.
Most people would like to change their life in some way or another. Remember, anytime you want to, you can make changes your life, but just wanting to change is not enough.
We have created our present situation by the choices we made in the past. If we chose to do nothing, then our situation reflection of that. Recognising that you live in a world of your own creation means that you are responsible.
Here are some feelings that we are each responsible for:
Happy or unhappy
Fulfilled or unfulfilled
Satisfied or dissatisfied
Encouraged or discouraged
Loved or unloved
Deserving or undeserving
Grateful or ungrateful
Secure or insecure
Look at the list, asking yourself, “have I personally taken responsibility for these feelings in my life?”
If you find that you are still looking to outside sources, then perhaps it is time to remember that you are personally responsible.
“This is your life. You are responsible for it. You will not live forever. Don’t wait.”
