I am totally on board with the whole, “you reap what you sew” or “if you do the same thing every day expect the same results,” mentality… So for me; it’s absolutely the case that my actions create my outcomes, and my thoughts create my reality.
If I do not make changes then my problems or worries will never resolve. This means I’m completely responsible for myself and my state. Sounds daunting on one hand, but on the other, it’s incredibly empowering.
I am in a position to choose the way I live my life. Recognising what is positive and helpful and what is change worthy is all I need to do to start improving my everyday existence. Asking yourself lots of questions and as a result doing things differently puts me (or you) back in the drivers’ seat, where we can stop being passive participants in life’s journey.
Seeing things this way is so empowering, it gives you the freedom to be anyone and achieve or experience anything you want to, everything is possible.
So, today, take back control, it’s time to start planning how you will change either the problem itself or if you are to do anything about that, then look at how you’re going to handle your reaction to this event/circumstance. Choosing your response means choosing your quality of life – it’s literally that simple. Reacting is disempowering, but it’s an ingrained habit for many of us, so don’t be too hard on yourself this habit takes some practising and planning to change.
