Power of Taking Responsibility for Your Life Experience

Written by on May 30, 2017

This is what I like to call RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY

In my travels, I have had the opportunity to interview thousands of business owners. Give me a situation and 48 hours and I will be able to show you at least 3 people that were successful in breaking out…. And three examples of people who didn’t. I can tell you that one of the main differences I always find is that successful people always take 100% responsibility for their life experience. Taking responsibility, and I mean total responsibility for your experience is the first step to success.

 

You Are 100% Responsible for Your Life Experience

This is what I like to call RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY. In my travels, I have had the opportunity to interview thousands of business owners.

The goal is to always ask, what could I have done to impact this situation differently? Most people only answer this question from a shaming standpoint. We want to ask from a teaching standpoint. What did you miss? How could you have maximized on your position? What could you have done to anticipate and better prepare?When you take full responsibility for your actions, you become the author of your story. The author is the only one in control of the story. You can’t control what you don’t own. Taking responsibility of your actions allows you to own the outcome.What are 5 examples where others have succeeded where you failed?What are 3 stories you can write that are more empowering than the one you previously chose to believe?

Without taking full responsibility for our experience, we leave ourselves in a dis-empowered position. The goal is to always ask, what could I have done to impact this situation differently?

When you take responsibility for your experience in life, you become the author of your story. The author is the only one in control of the story. You can’t control what you don’t own. Taking responsibility of your experience allows you to own the outcome. This is the only way to change anything. By taking ownership of it.
