When you take responsibility for your life, you get to decide the direction your life takes, and you get to decide the outcomes. In so doing, you get to fulfil your dreams and ambitions.
A lot of people think that to take 100% responsibility for their life would then mean that they are 100% to blame for all the things that go wrong in life. What responsibility doesn’t mean is either fault or blame. In fact, the dictionary definition of responsibility is ‘the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone.’
So if we look at responsibility in life as being a ‘duty to deal with life’, and as part of our duty to ourselves it’s important that we give this 100% of our attention this gives us a very different take on the term responsibility. Suddenly responsibility becomes something we feel we must do, rather than something we ought to do.
To consider responsibility as a ‘duty to deal with life’ encourages us to be more involved in our own lives. This duty encourages us to be more involved in what goes on in our own lives and to be more involved in the influences, the contributing factors such as the who, what, where, when, why and how of life. And, if we don’t like what we find, then we have the responsibility to change it.
According to Oprah, ‘Only you have the power to take responsibility to move your life forward, the sooner you get that the sooner your life gets into gear.’
When we blame other people for all that goes wrong in our lives this renders us helpless and puts us in victim mode. Responsibility is the ability to respond. To be responsible you have to be willing to see and to own your part in the causation in the experiences that you are going through in life.
What you think about expands. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
It’s easy to take responsibility when life is good, but not easy to take responsibility when things aren’t going so well.
