Taking responsibility for your own happiness is your third step to Lean Toward Happy. It may be hard to believe right now that where you are is because of the choices you made, or didn’t make, and the thoughts and beliefs that direct your life. Until now, most of your thoughts, beliefs, and choices have been made on auto-pilot.
Your ego has the very important assignment of keeping you safe. Unfortunately, if not monitored your ego takes its job and itself way too seriously.
Because you have been doing your ‘mirror work’ from the last e-mail, I am hoping this understanding that you are responsible for where you are right now is not causing you to feel like you are to ‘blame’.
We are so indoctrinated in our culture that someone is to blame for everything, so we must place that blame somewhere or take it on ourselves! Not true!
There is no one to blame…where you are is just an indicator of what you have been thinking and believing in the past. If you feel ‘bad’ about it then you know that it isn’t what you really want…that’s good news!
Now before you click away give me a minute to help you understand this….when YOU take full responsibility for where you are then there is no one standing in your way to keep you down. You free yourself from victim mentality and begin to understand that you can and do create your own reality…you just need to start consciously going about it from now on!
If you find you don’t know where to start or you feel like you don’t know what you REALLY want, I invite you to consider this program that helps you release all the ‘coulda’, ‘woulda’, ‘shoulda’ goals you have crowding your mind. You can learn about it here, CRACKING YOUR CHRYSALIS™ ~ Discovering Your True Desires.
It is so much easier to create dreams when they are your dreams, inspired ideas and actions make it fun rather than drudgery. This is where the phrase, ‘Do what you love and the money will come.’ This is true when you know what you truly love!
