You’re able to dramatically increase the overall quality of your life far faster than you might think possible. All you need is the desire to change, the decision to take action, the discipline to practice the fresh behaviors you’ve selected, and the decision to persist till you get the results you want.
Among the most important personal choices you’re able to make is to accept pure responsibility for everything you are and everything you’ll ever be. This is the first-class turning point in life.
Decide To Change It
The acceptance of personal responsibility is what distinguishes the superior person from the average person. Personal responsibility is the keenest trait of leadership and the wellspring of high performance in every person in every situation.
Accepting complete responsibility for your life means that you refuse to make excuses or blame others for anything in your life that you‟re not pleased about. You refuse, from this moment onward, to criticize others for any reason. You refuse to complain about your situation or about what has happened in the past. You eliminate all your if-onlys and what-ifs and center instead on what you truly want and where you’re going.
This decision to accept complete responsibility for yourself, your life, and your results, with no excuses, is absolutely essential if you wish to stay motivated. From now on, regardless what happens, say to yourself, “I’m responsible.”
If we want to enjoy life and expand into our highest potential, it‟s clear we‟ve got to give up our criticizing, blaming, complaining and overall whining and eliminate all the “if-onlys and what-ifs”. Starting now.
Everything is hard before it’s easy. You may need to exert enormous discipline to develop new habits of thought and behavior. However once you’ve them firmly locked in, they enable you to accomplish vastly more, with less.
Let‟s do what has to be done and watch the quality of our lives skyrocket! When you love your life, you love each minute of it. You’re truly heedful about misusing or wasting any of the precious moments and hours of every day. Do you love life? Then don’t waste time; for that‟s the stuff life is made of.
We live in endeavors, not years; in ideas not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heartbeats.
How about you? How highly do you prize yourself?
One way to discover is how you allocate your time. Are you squandering treasured moments and hours of every day? Is it time to cast aside the remote control and spend more time with your better half, your kids, your art, your business plan, your journal, your …? It‟s a treasured resource, this minute, this heartbeat… Let‟s honor it by using each moment wisely and this in turn will keep you motivated.
