Accepting 100% Responsibility for Yourself

by Angela Minelli on February 22, 2016

Accepting 100% Responsibility for YourselfIn school, we’re taught basic fundamentals like reading, writing and arithmetic.  But there’s so much that school leaves out that’s required for a well-rounded life, like effective social skills, healthy emotional management and knowing how to accept 100% responsibility for yourself.

This is a big one, and one most people don’t get.  Most times people think they’re being responsible.  They show up to work on time, pay their bills, put family first, and consider themselves a good friend.  But that’s only half the battle when it comes to accepting full responsibility for yourself and your life.

If you make a commitment, no matter how big or small, do you always keep it?  Do you agree to do something and then back out at the last minute?  Do you blame someone else when something doesn’t work out the way you want it to, or do you lie to cover your tracks sometimes just to save face?

That’s the kind of responsibility I’m talking about.  The rest is easy.  We’re all groomed to go to work, make money and meet family obligations.  We’re rarely taught however to own up to our mistakes, overcome failure without pointing the finger at someone else, just say no when we really want to, or say sorry when we should.

And this is why so many people don’t get the results they want in life, because as the saying goes, how you do one thing is how you do everything.

One of the biggest ways I see it show up is when it comes to someone’s health.  Doctors are here to help, not heal.  Regardless of what you might think, they’re not that powerful.  Only YOU can heal yourself.  Everything that happens to you is a result of what’s happening through you, so if you believe what doctors do will heal you, it will.  If you don’t, it won’t.

Either way, it’s your responsibility to believe what you choose to believe so that the outcome meets with your expectations and desire, not the other way around.  There is no doctor on the planet who can make you do something you don’t want to do.  No one can force you to exercise, nor can they force you to change your diet.  Change like that only happens as a result of you and your choices, and if you don’t change, the consequences are your responsibility too.   

Teachers teach, employers hire, the sun rises and sets every day.  What you do with the knowledge, time and opportunities you’re given is the responsibility of no one but you. 

You can spend time making excuses that it’s someone’s fault you don’t have what you want, because you don’t have enough money, you’re too old, too fat, or too tired.  Or, you can stop making excuses, accept 100% responsibility for absolutely anything and everything in your life, and finally fulfill every fantasy about what your life could be like if you had everything you ever wanted.

Accepting 100% responsibility for yourself may be a newer concept to you since excuse-making is something you’ve come to rely on, and let’s face it, much easier.  It also makes you feel safe, comfortable, and ok, because it’s something you’ve done to cope for so long that it might be inconceivable to you to be any other way.  But it also keeps you stuck, confused, and in a never-ending cycle, spinning around like a top, ultimately going nowhere.

Accepting 100% responsibility for yourself not only empowers you to take charge of your life, but it earns you respect too, even if it doesn’t mean being the most popular person in the room.  For when you do, you realize you and you alone have the power to create the life of your dreams.

When you give that power away though, to other people, circumstances, and events that you believe you have no power over, you allow yourself to become powerless, and your life is at the mercy of everyone and everything around you.

If you’re always left wondering why your life stays the same, you need to consider whether or not you accept 100% responsibility for yourself, with everything, even the things that don’t go your way that appear to be out of your control.  If you don't like your job, change it.  If your husband doesn't support your personal growth, find your own way to fund it.  If you're overweight and unhappy, hire a coach who can help you overcome it. 

We can’t change what other people do, but we can change what we do.  Your willingness to accept 100% responsibility for yourself is truly the key to having the breakthrough that will change everything for you.
