You alone are responsible for where you are and you alone are responsible for your actions.
So over the last few weeks I have really been concentrating on making you accountable for you and your place in this life. I hope some of you have really taking it to heart. That being said I’m not done. Until you admit you are the reason for your own problems you will never grow. You and you alone need to get it through your skull that all your problems and all your “excuses” and all things you think are out of your control are your own doing. Yes, sometimes we think they aren’t and we use every excuse in the book to put blame somewhere else. The truth is you set yourself up for not just every problem in your life but also every success you have had. It’s easy to handle problems when things are going well because mainly they just roll with the flow, but, when things aren’t going well they seem like a hole you can never get out of so you play the blame game and it’s never your fault. Don’t fool yourself you put yourself in the situation long before it happened by making bad decision after bad decision.
When you accept that everything you are or ever will be is up to you, that’s when you will start to grow. You have something in this life called free will which means that we are completely responsible for all of our successes, all our happiness or all our failures and all our unhappiness. That responsibility was placed on your shoulders the second you where born. So when you start to rationalize it and accept that you are responsible for every action you take and every decision you make then my friend the sky is the limit. There will be no accomplishment unless you accept that it is within yourself and yourself only, then you will crush any and all goals.
I remember something Billy said in a meeting once that he never had a backup plan there was never a plan B because that means he had already failed. He knew that this business was meant for him and his success was up to him. One of our biggest downfalls as humans is we don’t like to fail and more importantly we don’t like others to see us fail. The problem with that thinking is that we tend to set our goals but at the same time we crate excuses to keep as a get out of jail free card we can use so that if we don’t make it we can blame something or somebody else. Listen to this logic okay, the more personal responsibility you take, the more in control you are and the more control you will have, the more likely you will reach the goal because there will be no excuses to fall back on. Taking on all the responsibility for our actions = success. It will make you feel good knowing you have rid yourself of negativity and excuses and makes you understand your failures and success more.
Be accountable. At the end of the day we are accountable for ourselves. Our success or failure is a result of every action you take.
Stop Blaming. Stop pointing the finger. You are who you are, what you are and where you are by all the actions you have taken to this point in your life. What is the dominating thought that runs through your mind. Is it success?
Acknowledge what is happening. If you screwed up own it. Then move on and don’t make that screw up again. If you do, guess what? It’s your fault. When you own your mistakes it shows integrity and integrity earns respect.
Be positive all the time! Tackle your day with tons of motivation. Every notice people who always make excuses are always in a bad mood? They are perpetual victims and never happy. When you accept responsibility for having and working towards the life you want something switches in your head, your focus turns to what went right and subconsciously your brain is working to fix what went wrong. A small shift into positive focus will turn losers into winners quickly.
See yourself clearly. Own your weaknesses as well as your strengths. It is taking accountability for everything that is wrong and right about you. Have a complete picture of who you are now and who you want to be and start being that person. Having a complete picture of who you are will help you grow emotionally. In shouldering responsibility ourselves, we are giving the power to shape the outcome ourselves and are taking an active not a passive role in how our success turns out.
Everything you are is based on the choices you have made. It’s not your parents fault, it’s not the relationship you are in, it’s not the place you live, it’s not the economy, it’s not your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. Own it. It’s not only what we do, but also what we don’t do for which we are accountable.
Happiness, success, making dreams come true those are not readymade for you, they are made through your own actions. I love what I said in last week’s newsletter; All Star Motivation is an establishment of higher earning. Never and I mean never has any company like All Star Motivation ever existed. It is so easy for any individual from any walk of life to come in here and learn what we are teaching and go take that and turn it into the life they have always wanted. It just takes a lot of effort and action. It just takes a lot of responsibility and sacrifice. One of my all-time favorite quotes is from Henry Ford:
“If you think you can or you think you can’t you are right.”
It’s up to you what you do with that. It’s always been up to you!
