What most will eventually end up doing to better their lives, is go on this trek of self improvement. This stipulates development, continuing to get better. What we first need to accept, is that we’re ultimately responsible for everything that ever has, and will ever happen in our lives. We need to be fully accountable, as we’re the final result of our current being. From the day we’re born, to this moment, we are who we are.
But we live in a world that’s surrounded by negativity, as it bombards us from every direction. It begins with our parents, and they wanting the best for us. Unfortunately, it’s usually “the blind leading the blind.” Most have no idea what they’re doing. They’re just imperfect people, who had a “moment,” and we were born.
The teachers at school, will then attempt to infuse education and knowledge into us the best way they can. They’re also imperfect human beings, who may potentially have nurturing issues, who complies to an antiquated educational system.
Our peers, are all mostly damaged from emotional trauma themselves. So we take out our frustrations on one another. We belittle, bully and ridicule each other in the playground and eventually in the workplace. We comply to all these pressures, and the emotional scars just won‘t heal.
Why You’re Reading This Right Now
There are a thousand reasons, why we’re still alive at this moment, at this stage and position in our lives. This including our dire negative outlook, and the lack of belief that we have in ourselves.
But a new journey can begin by taking a single step forward, once you choose to improve your life. The first and most important imprint is taking accountability, taking full responsibility for your actions.
When taking this initial step on your journey towards the path to success, what’s important is taking complete control and diligence for your decisions. The thoughts that led you to where you currently are.
You need to stop blaming everyone else for your current state of life, your current circumstances. The things which happened in the past can’t be changed, removed, or altered. The past is the past. Your power, is in the present and the future.
The Past Is History
Regardless of how hard you try, how hard you struggle, complain, feel regret or rejected for what you’ve done in the past, you can’t change it. You need to accept that it occurred, and then build and learn from it.
Eliminate the environmental circumstances of your desperate issues. Once you take full responsibility, become culpable for your life, along with all its circumstances, you’ll then gain the power that’s need to alter your dormant life, into realizing potential.
Always Take Complete Blame
Stop blaming others for your broken issues, as doing so will lead you to ruin. The fact being, if others are responsible for your problems, you’re then saying that you have no say in improving your life. They also don’t care and have issues of their own.
They’re also most likely blaming you for their troubles, like you are blaming them. Once you realize you’re the only person who’s responsible for your life, and all of your faults, is when you’ll realize you’re the only one who can fix them.
This exhilarating feeling, once you gain control of your life and accept it, you’ll no longer need to rely on anyone else to fix you or your circumstances. You can regain full control of your life, and begin to direct your destiny.
Begin Manipulating Yourself
If you’re attempting to manipulate environments, circumstances, or other people, you have no control. There’s no way you can control everyone and everything.
What you can manipulate however, is the world you live in as you see fit. You can change your surroundings, the job you hate, your home, the people you interact with, and curve it to how you see fit.
You Have Great Power
Regardless of what faith or religion you believe in, or if you don’t, what’s undeniable is that there’s a greater force among us. Some call it fate, or luck. This faith resides in all of us, regardless.
This is the belief, where we have access to resources and infinite power beyond our control. This infinite power, is expressed in the physical world through our decision making and our intentions.
Always Strive To Be Better
What most want is to better their lives. Many have this motivation, but will never do anything about it. But once we connect to the “source,” whatever force you believe in, life can become altering.
You wouldn’t have ambition or wanting to better yourself, if you thought it wasn’t possible to achieve them. You weren’t placed on this earth to struggle, but to overcome challenges and enjoy this journey called life.
Getting What You Want
Start with your passion. Decide that you can and will reach your goals, since you know you’re the only one responsible for directing your life, and that no one else should or can help you.
Create a vision that ignites your enthusiasm. A vision on something that you’ve always wanted to be or have. The kind of vision, which springs eternal hope while the soul takes flight.
Then set your intentions and effort to achieve them. You’ve become responsible for your destiny, as you’ve set the vision for your future, a vision of a better life.
Begin by setting up small goals by taking “baby steps,” as achieving them will give you hope. Always set goals that will take effort to complete, but not impossible to reach, this so you won’t get discouraged and quit.
Write down your vision, and then the steps on how to reach them. Make statements which reflects the positive outcomes, as if they’ve already happened, such as, “I’m extremely grateful as I now own my own successful business.”
Never frame it in negative terms, or by “wanting” that goal. By wanting something, all you’re doing, is just confirming you lack it. Once you have a want, you’re sending a clear message that you need it. So instead, believe that you already “own” it.
