Good day everyone,
Occasionally when I am driving I happen to catch the news update on the radio station I happen to be listening to if I have forgotten my audio books etc. Recently I heard that some homeowners in Malibu or some place like that had complained to the city that the homeless population were defecating on their property. When the news crew went to interview the homeless man you have no idea what the response was. The man replied to the question of why they are vandalizing homeowners properties by defecating on their yard in this manner and I quote "well if they don't want me to use the bathroom on their property they should just get a porta-potty and put it in their yard. If they live here they can afford to rent a porta-potty". Now the news presented this as a comic relief in sorts, but I started thinking when did the situation get to a point of taking absolute no accountability for our actions.
This blog is about success and habits that will take us there. The most important and one of the pillars of success that many people and teachers preach is TAKING PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for our actions. We all do things that will backfire. We all will and have made mistakes. I just made one the other day in dealing with a large banking institution. No matter how I may feel that I was wronged when it comes to the heart of the matter, the point was that I did not do my due diligence and did not read the fine print. I can sit here and moan and complain and play the victim, or I can just move on and chalk it to a lesson learned and hopefully never repeated that will serve me in the long run.
So after taking personal responsibility, learn from your mistake and move on. Once the action is done there is no benefit from going over and over the issue again and again. The only person that will harm is yourself. No one else will be hurt by you going over and over the problem or to blame yourself. I know this is a very hard thing to do. I have to constantly struggle with letting go. It is so easy to be a victim and to complain. But that only brings more things for us to complain because as we know from the Law of Attraction we get what we concentrate on the most.
So in summary take responsibility and then learn and move on to greater opportunities.
Have a great day and don't forget to comment with your thoughts. Thanks.
