"Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny -- he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally -- you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you." - Osho

Life is inviting you to dance. The world is meant to be your playground. Today’s call was about taking responsibility for creating the life you want. To move forward with transformation, you will have to assume 100 percent responsibility for your experiences. At first there will be a tendency to blame and keep the focus outside of yourself, but the healing happens within as you accept the accountability for your actions and reactions. Each moment is a new opportunity to choose rather than react and repeat patterns that are no longer serving you. Accepting responsibility means examining the choices you make and becoming self-reflective about them.

Have you allowed life and its responsibility to take away all the fun in your life? Is someone else running your life? What role have you played with responsibility?

A key to creating the life you want is to control the direction of your thought and choices. If you are blaming others, outside circumstances or situations for how your life is, you are not taking responsibility for your life. You are giving away your power. You are playing to others opinions rather than being in your own alignment.

What are the excuses or lies you make to yourself and others? Do you believe these to be truths? What are some of your common excuses – “I don’t have time.”  “I’m too busy.” You make time for what you feel is important. If you are saying you are too busy, have you looked at what you really want?  Where are your priorities?  Are you living that or perpetuating the cycle of excuses?  Take an honest look at your life.

Telling the truth can be challenging. Think about when you make a mistake, do you take responsibility or blame others? What is that about? What is the underlying message you feel about making mistakes? Have you made it mean something about yourself or others? Can a mistake be an opportunity to try again or realize that is not the direction you need to go? Are you making excuses so you don’t have to be responsible?

Actions Steps:

  1. Make a list of all the people or circumstances that you are blaming for the way your life is right now. How could you shift that for you to take 100% responsibility for your life? Take each situation or person and write out how you are blaming them for you’re the way your life is right now. What is one step for each situation that you could take to shift your life?
  2. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest, chart how you are being responsible with your finances, relationships, career, health and physical well-being, spiritual, mental, fun/recreation? Do each one and see your pattern. Is there one area that you really are responsible with, or are there a number of areas of your life that you are being responsible?  How could you add something to increase those a little more, if needed? Are you trying to be responsible for others’ lives? Is there one area that you are not being responsible, more than one? What could you do today, to begin taking responsibility in those areas of your life?   Then, ask yourself what do I want to let go of that’s not serving me? What is it that you are doing that is in the way of you taking responsibility?
