If you want to grow in life, in your career, in your relationships, you must learn how to take responsibility for your own actions. When you did something the wrong way, or things didn’t go your way, don’t blame anyone for it, own it.
Here are five quotes that will show you how to ‘own it’:
“What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.”- Plutarch, Greek-Roman biographer
“Men are only clever at shifting blame from their own shoulders to those of others.”- Livy, Roman historian
“Men are slower to recognize blessings than misfortunes.”- Livy, Roman historian
“It is easier to criticize than to correct our past errors.”- Livy, Roman historian
“We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them.”- Livy, Roman historian
Your inner voice is to help you succeed in life, not to stop you from achieving your goals. If you want to succeed, if you want to move from where you are to where you want to be, you have to connect with your inner voice. Your inner voice is your friend, not your enemy.
Your inner voice is to help you, not to hurt you. Don’t accept negative affirmations from your inner voice. If your inner critic is pushing you to settle for less, reject it. If your inner critic is telling you thousands of things that you cannot do, reject them. Don’t accept them. Don’t allow them to be your reality.
No matter what your inner critic is telling you, don’t let it stop you from moving forward. Don’t let your inner critic tell you that you are not good enough, that you are lazy, that you are not beautiful, that you are a loser, or that you can never amount to anything in life.
Listen to the voice that is telling you how beautiful you are, how good you are, how intelligent you are, how smart you are, how tall you are, how healthy you are. Embrace this voice, celebrate this voice, and love this voice.
When you listen to your healthy inner voice, your self-worth, your confidence, your self-esteem will go up. But if you spend your time listening to your unhealthy inner voice, your self-worth, your confidence, your self-esteem will suffer. If you want to protect yourself, your health, your life, and your relationships from going down, listen to your healthy inner voice.
According to Buddha, “Peace comes from ; do not seek it without.” To live a healthier, happier life, listen to your healthy inner voice.
“There is no such thing as a free lunch.”- Milton Friedman
“The only way around is through.”- Robert Frost
“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”- E. E. Cummings
We want to be successful, but no one wants to take the hard and rough road to success. In life, nothing is free. As the author stated, “there is no free lunch.” If you want your dreams to come to pass, you have to do whatever it takes to make them happen. If you wait for your dreams to come to you, they will never come to pass.
Don’t be scared to pursue your dreams. You have what it takes to make your dreams a reality. You cannot succeed without facing your fears. When you face your fears, your fears will disappear. Take small steps. Believe in yourself, and you can get it done.
There is nothing you cannot achieve if you want it badly. It is not going to be easy, but you can do it. You can make your dreams come true by focusing on what will get you to the next level. Don’t let people talk you out of your dreams. Surround yourself with people who are ready to take the journey with you.
Success is not going to come to you if you are not ready to receive success. Face your fears. Believe in yourself. Don’t doubt yourself. You can do it.
Rabindranath Tagore said, “You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”
“Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it leads.”- Henry Miller, writer
“Change your thoughts and you change your destiny.”– Dr. Joseph Murphy
In order to change your life, you have to first change how you view the world around you. If you don’t change how you see things, the things you want to change will not change.
You can change what is not working for you by taking positive actions. Only actions can change your life. You can plan, talk, dream all you want, but if you don’t support your dream with actions, it will remain a dream.
You can change your life by taking positive actions. You can start by taking small actions. The things that you do today will create your destiny. Small actions, if you practice them every day, will determine your destiny.
James Allen said, “A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.” If you want a great life, think great thoughts. If you want to be healthy, wealthy, happy, and successful, flood your mind with positive thoughts.
