The Buck Stops With You

“Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.”
Sigmund Freud

I often write about empowering our lives. Victimhood is passé. Freedom is the way to success. You cannot be the victim and free at the same time. You choose.

If you have recently lost a friendship…a job…a relationship – remember: it ended because it was over….It was complete.

To find freedom we need to embrace our responsibility 100%. Where did you contribute to the downfall of your relationship, job or friendship? What lessons can be learnt?

Taking 100% responsibility does not absolve the other person of their responsibility. But that is theirs to sort out. The only thing you have control or power over is yourself.

When we take full responsibility, we acknowledge ourselves as the creator of our life and circumstances. And while it may feel a little uncertain to start with, I promise, the uncertainty soon turns into a thrill, taking responsibility allows you to acknowledge your immense power.

Start taking full responsibility for yourself today and feel the thrill.

“The victim mindset dilutes the human potential. By not accepting personal responsibility for our circumstances, we greatly reduce our power to change them.”
Steve Maraboli
