“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
~ Napoleon Hill
Today I am challenging traditional thinking. Most of us can accept that the decisions we make have consequences, and since we have control of our decisions, we control what happens in our lives…to a certain extent…
What I am proposing is that we are responsible for everything in our lives – EVERYTHING! That means everything that has ever happened to us. Everything that will ever happen. EVERYTHING!
This is a tough one for most people to swallow…but once you do, you find that you feel so much freer, so much more in control of what is happening in your life…and you feel that you have the power to direct it.
I can hear you now, “What about things that happened when we were just babies? What about the people who are involved in a horrible accident, like a plane crash? What about natural disasters?” Well, I have only one thing to say to these questions…”YOU are responsible for everything in your life – EVERYTHING.”
You chose the circumstances of your birth, and you chose your basic preferences so that they would enable you to experience what you came to experience. I know this sounds far-fetched, but give me the benefit of the doubt for a while.
I know you feel that if you had a choice about where you started your life, you would have feathered your nest so that you would never want for anything…wrong! Perhaps you are not here to experience that. Perhaps you are here to experience the struggle that you must face to achieve the life that you want to live.
Everything happens for a reason…and everything that happens to you is for a reason…it is to help you develop and become who you wanted to become by being born onto this physical plane.
Just think what that means. There is nobody and nothing to blame for any circumstances or events in your life! Don’t you find that thought freeing? When you wrap your head around it, you come to the realization that this also means that you can choose what happens to you. You can create the life of your dreams. You can be the person you want to be. You can do all of the things you have every wished you could do.
That make you unlimited. That’s right. You have unlimited potential. You can do, be, and have anything you can conceive of. What a wonderful life you have in front of you!
Accept that you are responsible for everything in your life…and stop blaming others. Nothing is going wrong…everything is exactly as you planned it before you got here. Your life is not pre-determined, but your preferences, your passions, and your choices will allow you to live the life you intend to live…like it or not. There is nobody else to blame for your circumstances than yourself…so if you don’t like something, change it, or leave it behind…it is always your choice.
