I Just came across JW’s Awake Magazine, (July Edition). Titled: Are you in Control of Your Life? And after reading the edition I was inspired to write on “Accepting responsibility for your life”:
Being action oriented is the best way to make up for the times in life when things don’t work out as well as we’d hoped they would the first time around.
Make no mistake, you have the ability to change your lot in life, provided you are willing to do what’s required. It all begins with a willingness to let go of the idea that others are responsible for whatever has kept you from the vision you have for your life.
Friend, I’m the first to admit that it can be a hard pill to swallow, accepting that you are ultimately responsible for your own life — but when you get it, you become like a painter with an infinite canvas upon which to craft a masterpiece. You begin to realize you are not simply at the mercy of whatever life throws your way. You realize that you were in fact endowed with the ability to live a BIG life!
