Step 4 – You take responsibility for your life

In short, it means that everything is your fault. An expanded version of this is that you are responsible for your life and your reaction to the circumstances that appear in your life.

This is one of the biggest differences between being a victim and a creator. The victim blames everyone and everything for the way their life is. However, It is not even their fault that they are the way they are because, it is based on a belief system that has been handed down to them by their parents, who in turn got it from their parents and so on. While all this happens in a seemingly repeated cyclical motion the truth is that everyone is just doing the best they can with what they have learned.

The victim is forever stuck suffering the past or worrying about the future, not knowing that they can change all of it in a single moment by making a decision to accept responsibility for their situation.

There are two things that must be done in order to change this mindset. The first is letting go of the past which is gone forever and never coming back.

Once that is done, we can continue to the second part which is moving forward with a plan to create the future we want. We must also accept the starting point which is the present moment.

Everyone’s starting point will be a little different based on their life situation, however, we can all create and plan to do the things we love and want in our future.

The most amazing thing I found about this is that once I did the work, the results started showing up in my life, it seemed that things started to happen faster than I expected. The same is possible for you and I encourage you to start today.
