Who and what are you blaming today for feeling “less than” happy? It’s an important question to ask yourself throughout your day.  It will clue you in to who you are giving your power to and help you to question – WHY?

We all do it.  Give our power away that is.  We truly are the Captain of our own ship, however, we all slip from time to time and get tired of the responsibility owning our own lives and experiences.  I guess I should ask:  Are you even aware that you ARE 100% responsible for your own life?  Just thought I would ask as I do not want to presume.

Just so you know, if you are uncertain about that question I have put together a free Mini-Course and Ebook on just that.  You should check it out or simply sign in over to the right of this page.  Either way, you’ll get the free gift :-)!

Sorry, got a bit diverted in my message but it seemed appropriate to throw that in there because I think there are many people who don’t really understand that they truly are creating their lives, whether it be consciously or unconsciously.

Okay back to the “Ship” analogy…. If somebody is showing up in your life that is making you feel “crazy”, angry, sad, frustrated, victimized or whatever negative emotion that you know to be true for you, WHY do you give them even more power by allowing them to determine how happy you get to be?

If you are steering you ship and someone comes and tells you you’re doing a crappy job and you suck at it (they don’t happen to like where you’re heading) and demand that you let them take over the Helm, are you seriously going to do that?  Agreeing to just being along for the ride even though they are taking you somewhere you DON’T want to go?  Or should you tell them to mind their own ship and do what they need to do but they need to GET OFF your ship NOW!

Perhaps you relish in the “sweet release” of relinquishing ownership of your life and your feelings to someone else for a while.  After all, you get to blame the guy/gal that you’ve just let take over!  How’s that gonna work for you?  While you can BLAME. BLAME. BLAME, you will forever be at their mercy and forever be hoping they will “see the light and take you where YOU want to go”.  Won’t EVER happen!

Are you starting to get the picture?  If we were all to just stop in the moment of feeling bad and ask ourselves the question I posed earlier “Who’ Fault Is It”, we would remember that it is our own fault because we CAN CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY!  We can choose to get back into the “drivers seat”!

Just a sweet reminder of how powerful you are!  Your amazing life is waiting for you ~ full of all that you can see in everybody you’ve ever admired or aspired to be.  These people would not be reflecting back to you it wasn’t a part of WHO you are in this moment!

Here’s a couple of really great books that are newly released that would be super valuable time spent.  I highly recommend them!
