The first rule of being a creator of your reality, is taking 100% responsibility for your life.
When we break down the word “responsibility”, it simply means “the ability to respond” to your world. Now imagine your life as a video game, where you play the main hero. If you want to have fun and win, you need to recognize that the controller is actually in your hands, and nobody else’s. Once you’ve decided that you are in charge, you just have to put your foot on the gas and go!
The best reflector for our level of awareness is the present moment, and the simplest way to gage your state of mind is to recognize how present you are being. From one perspective, the present moment is the controller and any time we get caught up in our thoughts or give our power away to something external, we forfeit the controller. It’s in this moment of escape that we are open to negative thoughts, beliefs and feelings to seep in and start running the show. It takes constant awareness and practice to stay vigilant and keep coming back into the present moment.
The mind is the house and the heart is our home, so it’s important to make sure it’s a space of optimism. When we approach this in a realistic way, it is a very simple but difficult concept; especially since we have a lot to unlearn. Outdated patterning lives in the subconscious and in order to rewire it, we have to identify the baggage and clear it out. The subconscious runs the show until we take ownership and throw it in the back seat. If left unattended, it often becomes our biggest saboteur and holds us back from our truest potential.
It doesn't matter where you are on the journey, just as long as you are showing up. Time is relative and it’s never too late to shift your life into the gear of growth. Keep your eye on the prize and watch your world transform.
I love diving into these concepts because it gives me a chance to reflect and stay grounded. Thanks for reading and if this has been at all helpful, check out my Instagram post for a condensed version of this blog. Stay present!
