Welcome to the “From Blame to Responsibility” edition of “It’s Sun Day: Your Day to Shine”
Today, is Sunday the 27th of June 2021.
Have you ever noticed that you can break the word “Blame” down into “Bla” and “Me”?
I find this quite interesting as when you are in the “Bla Bla Bla” you are not taking any responsibility for your part (Me) in what you are talking and complaining about,
You are totally responsible for your life. This is the foundational principle you must embrace if you plan for happiness and success in all areas of your life.
For many people, everything is someone else’s fault. Every problem can be explained away with reasons why they can’t affect the situation or the outcome, especially at work.
The blame game is one of the most common barriers that get in your way and one of the easiest to identify and change. It is really easy to look at your current life and blame everyone except yourself.
Though today, this beautiful Sun Day, is the day that we are going to shed light on how to move from Bla-me to Responsibility.
Have fun with this.
Take time to Celebrate You, Today and All Days!
Unlocking Your Potential From Within
Today’s activity will give you guided steps that will assist you to move from the Blame Game to Unlocking Your Potential from Within! The ‘blame game’ will stop you from living the life that you desire. The responsible place to look is actually inside of yourself. To take stock of who you are and what barriers you’re putting up.
#1. Seek to Understand
Most people have a tendency to judge other people on their actions whilst judging themselves by their intentions. This leads to us filtering our thoughts so that we’re more likely to be right and everyone else more likely to be wrong. When you make it a priority to understand the reasons behind others’ actions, it helps you to consider their perspectives and challenge your own sometimes superficial assumptions. Choose to be curious. Choose to keep asking why. This will assist you to better understand the underlying cause of any situation. Our minds may bias us towards blaming others, though it is always best to choose to keep questioning what we actually want to believe.
#2. Take Responsibility
The most important aspect of taking responsibility for your life is to acknowledge that your life is your responsibility. No one can live your life for you. You are in charge. No matter how much you continue to blame others for the events of your life, each event is the result of choices you made and are making. Listen to the little voice in your head. And observe yourself talking with co-workers, family members and friends. Do you hear yourself taking responsibility or placing blame? What measures can you put in place that will assist you to delete the “bla-me track”? Spend some time, contemplating:
- How can you take responsibility today for your life?
- What things are you going to put in place that will make a difference?
- How can you eliminate blame?
- How will you react in the future when things don’t go to plan?
- Will you be able to turn a disaster into an opportunity to learn and grow?
#3. Choose a More Empowered Response
Blaming others may make you feel better temporarily, but it also disempowers you. If you want to reach your full potential, stop accusing others and start accepting responsibility for the quality of your life and relationships. Choose a response that EMPOWERS YOU.
Are you ready to do your part to create a life you love?
Now, that is a WRAP for Sun Day the 27th of June 2021: Your Day to Shine. When frustrating things come up, take a pause, then take your Conscious Loving Breath. This is how you take responsibility for all that happens in your life. Always remember that above all else you deserve your love and to be empowered.
Have an amazing week. Make it Meaningful Memorable and Magical.
Stay well and always remember that there is great love here for you.
