They say “If nothing changes, then nothing changes”. So true. If you want to make those changes, then something has to change for it to occur. So what are you waiting for in order to make those changes? Your partner, your employer, your kids? Well if you hadn’t already guessed, it’s not up to them. It’s up to YOU!!
This isn’t a conversation that always goes down well, “If you want change, then you need to be 100% responsible for your experiences in your life.” There isn’t much that we can control, though what we can control is our emotions, our decisions, our behaviors, the quality of your relationships, your physical fitness…everything.
We have been conditioned to blame all of that outside of ourselves, particularly the parts that we don’t like. This could be our parents, the weather, our lack of something…anything but ourselves. Though the answer always points back to ourselves. If we can’t see ourselves as part of the problem we can’t see ourselves as part of the solution.
If you’re not getting the results you’re after then you need to change what you’re putting in. So if you want change, what is it that you need to do to make that happen?
I’m not saying that everything is now going to just show up the way that you want and life’s going to be just dandy. Though when we start taking that responsibility for our own outcomes, we become active participants in our own lives.
So how are you going to start the New Year now? What conscious decisions do you have to start making to feel like you are living life more on your terms? What do you need to put in to make sure you get what you want out of life?
This might not have been you’re typical “Christmas” infused blog, though it is definitely food for thought.
Have a Happy Holiday and a great New Year from all of us at Body Mind Soul Clinic.
