It seems that over thousands of years we have changed very little.
At the very core of human nature remains a tendency to engage in the blame game.
So often we feel quite justified to accuse the Government, company policy, our financial situation, society or even our spouse for our current state of affairs.
One thing is for sure: victims always pin their bad luck or personal misfortune on someone or something outside their own sphere of control.
You can pick them the very moment you hear them say, "It's not my fault!"
Some people seem to be able to accept 100% responsibility for everybody else but themselves!
You must accept 100% responsibility for you.
At a grassroots level, within each successful individual resides this core belief: "I am where I am in life because this is where I chose to be!"
Therefore, the first step in making your mission possible is to realise that "the buck stops here".
What I am saying is: ultimately, WE are responsible for what WE do.
Even if somebody's advice turns sour and causes us great pain, can we really blame them?
While they may have given us bad advice, we took it!In analysis we are responsible for our present conditions.
If, for example, you see your current weight problem as something outside your sphere of control, then there's nothing you can do to change it. It's not your fault! You're just fat!
If, however, you bring your weight problem under the jurisdiction of your own responsibility, you then have the power to change it.
The lesson here is that there are no such things as circumstances, there are only results.
"Man is not the creature of circumstances. Circumstances are the creatures of men." - Benjamin Disraeli
By accepting that our choices have created our current conditions in life, we then possess a great power.
Sure, some things in your life may be beyond your control, but, just for a moment, consider a few of the things that you can choose.
For example, you can control:
Consider how your life would change if you were to make better choices in these areas.
Life is a series of choices, so choose life! Choose love! Choose a better way of living and a better quality of life!
Choose for yourself and for your children a future that will bring you richness, joy and inner fulfilment all the days of your life. You have the power and Mission Possible will show you how to use it more effectively.
