Discipline: Knowing You
Hello, My Friends
Grounding ourselves begins with knowing we are not grounded.
How can we get where we want to go, when we don’t know where we are?
Learning to follow your internal guidance system will save you from a lot of heart ache.
Today I want to talk about responsibility.
This is a word that sends people running for cover and pointing fingers at other people.
Like the old saying goes, when you point a finger at someone else you have four more pointing back at you.
Being responsible for your life means that you are prepared to acknowledge every situation you are in, or have ever been in has something to do with you.
The only person who can control you is you.
The only person responsible for you is you.
There isn’t anyone coming to save you.
If you don’t like where you are, you are the only one who can change it.
Now, here is the hairy part, to be fully in control of our lives we have to admit to ourselves and maybe to others, but we’ll begin with ourselves, that we like being able to blame someone else when things go wrong, or don’t go as planned.
If you were the reason that your life was not as you want it to be, would you have the courage to a) admit it, and b) do something about it.
Your partner is not responsible for you, You are.
Your children are not responsible for you, You are.
Your boss is not responsible for you, You are.
That is the power of thoughts, and emotions. You have the power to change everything.
And you don’t have to physically do anything if you don’t want to.
Change can begin in the way you think about yourself.
If you began to think about how you can take the reins of your life, one thought at a time.
Every time you feel like you have lost control because of some one else’s words or actions, you decided to give them your thoughts and emotions, you gave them control over you.
Discipline is in the mind. Take back your control, be responsible for you.
Watch what you are thinking when you feel out of control, or when you feel your power has been undermined, or usurped.
Thoughts have so much power, and when spoken they create. Be careful of your thoughts.
Today’s challenge is to write “I am enough” on your bathroom mirror. Read it twice a day and let it soak into your spirit. And give yourself a cheeky little wink.
Until tomorrow, think about how you are giving your power away to others.
