Are You Taking 100% Responsibility For Your Life?

Taking Responsibility for having a great life

Are you just dreaming of a great life, or are you doing something to make it happen?

Are you taking 100% responsibility for your life?

I subscribe to Darren Hardy’s daily success emails called Darren Daily. You can subscribe here. It’s like getting a little motivational success push every morning in my inbox.

Anyway, today he was talking about people who are always dreaming, but never finding themselves any closer to realizing those dreams than they were a year ago (or maybe even 10 years ago). Why? Because they come up with excuses.

It’s too hot. I’ve got kids. My mother got sick. I’m too tired. It’s too hard right now. I don’t have the money. I want to make sure everything’s perfect before I get started.

Well guess what? The people who are successful, the people doing the things you want to do, don’t make excuses. They do it anyway.

They do it when they have a house full of kids. They do it when they don’t have money. They do it when they’re tired. They do it when nothing is perfect.

They just do it.

Stop making excuses as to why you are not living the life you want to live. If you’re not, the responsibility for that lies squarely on your shoulders and your shoulders alone. No one else is at fault.

And yes, life happens. It happens to all of us. The difference is how you react to what life throws at you. Do you use anything tough thrown your way as an excuse as to why you cannot get something done? Or do you see the tough time as an obstacle to overcome, get around and keep moving toward your goal?

Don’t just dream of a better life. Don’t visualize and not set goals to realize the life you envision. Don’t set goals and not take action to meet those goals.

Stop making excuses and get going on those goals! You can do this!

Have a blessed day!
