“When we have begun to take charge of our lives, to own ourselves, there is no longer any need to ask permission of someone” ~ George O’Neil
You want more happiness and fulfillment in your life but so often you feel like all you do is race to keep up. You feel like a victim to your circumstances.
Though you try to change, things get in the way. You feel defeated. It might even seem like you have it all ~ a good job, a beautiful family, wonderful supportive friends, you may even be comfortable financially. But you still feel unhappy and unfulfilled.
Does this sound like you?
If so, you are not alone.One of the greatest struggles you have today is too many choices. With too many choices, you become paralyzed to the point that you will emotionally shut down, hoping for someone else to take charge.
Here’s the problem with that. Waiting on someone else leaves you helpless.
Taking responsibility is the single most powerful thing you will do!
Here are 3 small ways to do that:
1) Take Care of the Little Things: Are you taking care of the small things in life? For instance, do you pay your bills on time? Follow up on promises you make? Basically, do you say what you are going to do and then do what you say? Being true to your word is powerful. I realize sometimes you will make promises and something unexpected happens. That is normal. Even then, honor your word by addressing it.
2) Stop Waiting on Others: If you find yourself often waiting on others BEFORE you do something, then you are giving your power away. It’s time to take charge of your life. The beauty is, eventually those who really love and care about you will be supportive of your efforts to grow, and those who don’t are not meant to be in your life. It’s that simple. Creating authentic, healthy relationships leads to a deeper, more intimate connection with yourself and others. It is a pathway to the divine.
3) Practice True Self-Care: Self -care is about taking care of all of you ~ physical, mental, and emotional. This goes back to number 1 above, where taking care of your needs is crucial. You are the only one responsible for your own health and well being. You’ve been given this one life and body ~ treat it with kindness. This is the point where many struggle where self-care feels selfish. The truth is, it’s the most loving thing you can do. True self-care is about caring properly for yourself, not living only for yourself. When you practice true self-care, you are strengthened to love those around you in authentic and powerful ways.
Following these 3 steps will dramatically change your life.
