Oooooh its such a big scary grown up word isn’t it? But the next thing after awareness is acknowledging that you are responsible for everything that you bring into your life.
Now I’m not saying its all your fault! There’s a big difference between something being your fault and being your responsibilty. Let’s look at it in a business context – say you are the boss and one of your employees has done something really dumb – the crisis is not your fault, but as the business owner/boss it is your responsibility to put things right. It happens all the time, people blaming the fast food shops for their weight problems, cigarette companies for their health problems, the internet for their lack of social skills, the list is endless. The problem is when you put the blame on someone else you give away all your power.
The thing is, if you don’t take responsibilty you can never fix anything. Too many people blame the stars, the angels, or even God or the economic situation for everything that is wrong in their lives. And its quite possible that in any situation the angels or whoever are taking the proverbial, but how does that help you? It really doesn’t matter what caused a situation, its in the past and it cannot be changed, all you can do now is learn from it.
But the moment you have awareness, you can take responsibility from this moment on to do everything in your power to create the results you want, no matter what the circumstances!
