When things go wrong, and they sometimes will, our first inclination is to find some person or thing to place the blame on.
I could’ve succeeded “if only they would have” blank, blank, blank. It does little to solve the problem but it does sooth our egos and it makes us feel better. But, there are very few situations where something went wrong, that we did not have some responsibility for the outcome.
One of the first steps in creating the life that we want and deserve is to accept responsibility for everything in our life. EVERYTHING. That means all the good and all the bad. And that’s no easy task.
It is human nature to readily accept responsibility for all the good we created, but we’ll argue that we are not responsible for the bad stuff. But it is true. We create through our thoughts. We choose which thoughts we let take hold in our minds, and a negative thought will manifest negative things into our lives just as easily as a positive thought will manifest something positive.
So choose your thoughts wisely. Your thoughts become things, and you then must live with the consequences.
