New Year resolutions are part of a new year. These are often made while secretly saying to oneself that it would anyhow never happen. The problem is that this attitude makes us a victim of our own lives. Negative thoughts not only poison your life but everyone around as well.
We often hear to take responsibility for our life. What is the big deal about it? The big deal is that it moves you from being the victim to being the victor of your life. We need to accept that we create your lives and are not just reacting to it. You will soon realise that things happen for you and not to you. Taking responsibility allows you to choose how to respond to life’s challenges. You move into the driver seat of your life’s journey.
Most of all, taking responsibility changes your energy. Our thoughts, feelings, words and actions are energy and that attract more of what we think and feel. It merely matches the energy of your thoughts and feelings with experiences that will give you the same energy. Thus negative thoughts will attract negative experiences. Scientists believe that 5 minutes of negativity can create up to 6 hours of damage to one’s body.
Now, when you have thoughts that result in you feeling good, the law of attraction responds by bringing you the experiences that will confirm you feeling good. But how can we change our negative energy into positive energy?
To take responsibility for your life, is to take responsibility for your powers of thinking, feeling, speaking and acting, because this is the structure of all human experience. You create your life with your thoughts, feelings, words and actions. How you feel happens in your body and is a result of your thoughts. The words you speak come from your mouth and voice. The actions you take, are taken by you. What this means is that nobody can make you think, feel, say or do anything. In the same way, you don’t have control over how other people respond.
Refuse to take anything personal. It is most probably not about you, but about the issue at hand. Instead of making assumptions, rather ask questions. This is a very powerful and liberating practice, with never-ending surprises.
