“You just can’t let life happen to you, you have to make life happen.”
Idowu Koyenikan

.
Many people think about their lives as something that just happens to them instead of something that they can create themselves. They drift through life reacting to the actions of others instead of taking steps on their own behalf to shape their life.

.
By taking responsibility for our lives we not only gain control of what happens. It also becomes natural to feel like you deserve more in life as your self esteem builds and as you do the right thing more consistently. You feel better about yourself.

.
Not taking responsibility may be less demanding, less painful and mean less time spent in the unknown. It is more comfortable. You can just take it easy and blame problems in your life on someone else. But there is always a price to pay. When you don’t take responsibility for your life you give away your personal power.

.
To change what is wrong in your life, you must believe you are the one in control. Taking charge of your liver means not blaming other, complaining or criticizing when you don’t get what you want. Instead accept full responsibility for your life, whether you caused it or not; even external problems can have internal solutions. Taking responsibility for your life will empower you, create success, and raiser self esteem, all of which lead to increased happiness.

.
Look today to take more responsibility to shape your life for the better.

.
“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”
Eleanor Roosevelt
