Take 100% Responsibility for Your Happiness

There is a common myth held by many that someone else or something is responsible for your success, joy, happiness or failure.  As children we are bombarded with images in fairytales, movies and storybooks that show us that a prince will come and rescue us from the evil stepmother or we will be rescued by seven dwarfs or a beast. It is no wonder that we grow up believing someone is going to rescue us and make us happy, or worse, that someone else is totally responsible for our misery.  You are 100% responsible for your life, your joy, your future, your failure, your achievements and the people you allow into your life.  This also includes responsibility for your health, physical fitness, career, success, your income, your debts and your feelings.

Stand in the background at any social event and you will probably hear someone say, “He or she made me angry.”  Or “If only my spouse would        (fill in the blank)                 I would be happy” Or “I hate to go to work because I don’t like my boss.”  Expecting someone to make you happy is a heavy burden to put on someone and it will usually lead to disappointment. You must own your life and take responsibility for doing what ever it will take to bring you joy.

If you want to live your dream life, you have to take 100% responsibility for your life.  This means giving up excuses about why things aren’t working. Stop blaming others for your life-you are not a victim.  The more you remove yourself from this way of thinking the more you will begin to attract the life you want.  Feeling like a victim and believing you don’t have the power to change your situation blocks you from attracting the things, events, opportunities and people that you want. Happiness and success are a choice.  You have the power to choose!
