When you can accept full responsibility for every creation in your life, you fully own the power. You become powerful beyond measure.
The biggest challenge for many people when it comes to owning their power and actually stepping into their power, is they’re so busy giving other people their power they become powerless.
And how do people give power to others? By blaming them. “Well, it’s your fault that everything turned to shit”.
Okay, I just gave you my power.
“What you don’t understand, my dad used to talk really badly to me”. Okay, I’m going to give my dad all my power.
Look at your entire life and go, “You know what, it may not be my fault but it is completely my responsibility.”
I would even go as far as saying, “Everything is your fault”. You just haven’t realised it yet, and as soon as you do it’ll be one of the greatest decisions that you ever make is to accept full and total personal responsibility. Because then no one has the power anymore except for you.
Who’s created a lot of shit in their life?
Okay, how good would it be to look at that shit, not label it, and just look at it and go, “Fucking wow. Look at the scale of what I’ve created”.
If you can remove the labelling and go, “If I can create a level of drama at that scale, I must have a lot of power behind me”. Then all you need to do is go, “Right, didn’t want that. What do I want? I want something else. I already know I can create something to a large scale, I just need to refocus my intention and my stories and the actions that go with that”.
And you now have a reference for creation. You just labelled it the wrong way. And because you labelled it the wrong way you wanted to give it to somebody else. Instead of going, “This isn’t what I ordered. This isn’t what I ordered”. It’s exactly what you fucking ordered. But you ordered the degustation, so dessert comes last.
Responsibility is power.
