I am Responsible

June 21, 2017

Hey guys, day 30, coming at you with responsibility. A couple of key points with being responsible. If you want your life to change, you must take 100%. Not a little, not some, not most, you need 100% responsibility for your life. If you don’t you are not going to be able to change. There is the cause and effect principle. If you are not responsible, you cannot cause.

 

We are talking about responsibility. If you want to be the cause in your life, then you got to be responsible. If you are not the cause, then you must settle as being affected. Do you want to be affected? Or do you want to be the cause? It is the cause and effect principle. We must take 100% responsibility.

The other thing is understanding that everything, and when I say everything, I mean, everything is your fault. Now what I mean by that is everything, where you live, what you do for a living, your relationships, your income, your happiness level, all of that is your fault. That’s not always a fun pill to swallow. You need to understand everything is your fault, where you work, where you live, where you play, your friends, it is all your fault.

If you take responsibility, and you realize it is my fault, you can actually do something about it. That is what I wanted to talk to you guys about today. This new mantra, this new idea, of saying to the world, I am responsible. You know, I was talking to a friend of mine. They let me borrow their keys the other day. I’m like I got the keys to the house, and I lost them. I felt like crap, right. But I had to own up to it, I had to be responsible, I am responsible for this. I found out what I did wrong.

I know what I am going to do differently in the future. I had to be responsible for that. I have also had to be responsible for some real estate deals that did not go so well. Now at the moment, I could have turned into a victim. My partner did not do that, or it did not turn out, victim. Instead, because I have been working on my mind of steel, I said, I am responsible. Who is responsible? I am responsible.

So by taking responsibility, it turned out to be a deal in my favor. I was able to take advantage of it and move forward. I did not turn into victim mode.

Being responsible means not using victim language, not using blame. Blame is lame. It gives away your personal power. Being 100% responsible is not using justifications either, it is not using complaints. It is taking 100% responsibility and saying I own this. If it is to be it is up to me.

Okay, so it is also taking responsibility for your body. How that is functioning for you. Right? Are you dragging your ass in the morning, and it takes you an hour and a half and four cups of coffee to get going? Well, that is your responsibility, and that is your fault. There are ways you can get full of energy and ready to go right when the day starts. So you got to say I am responsible.

Being accurate with your words is your responsibility. The last exercise I want to challenge you guys to do is I want you to ask yourself a few questions about responsibility. It’s not always easy, but having this mindset and understanding everything’s my fault, and a situation or scenario does not turn out in my favor, then the real question is, how did I create that? What did I do to create that?

So, have a buddy ask you that? What did you do to create this? Then have them witness your answer? What did you do to create this? What could you have done differently to get that outcome different? What did you do or not do to cause this result? Have them ask you few responsibility questions, and then own it, and do your best not to turn into a victim? Do your best not turn into blame? Or to justify or blame anyone else.

One thing I like about hanging out with these guys back here is if something goes awry in the project, then everyone is quick to take responsibility. There is no finger-pointing here. Think about the old cliche of Hey, if you point your finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at you. So, there is no finger-pointing here. Everyone takes responsibility. They own it.

Next time someone says something or the ball gets dropped at work or the house or wherever. Say I am responsible and own it. You will feel great about it. I’ve surprised a lot of guests. Or a lot of people come over to my house, or they were hanging out for the first time with some new friends. Again, something goes awry. I go, I’m responsible. I’ll take it. Then another friend goes, Oh, no, I’m responsible. The new friend is like, what? This is the most responsible group I’ve ever hung out with.

So you want to have this reputation of being responsible leaders are responsible. That’s the major key. It is your fault. It’s all good. You are the cause, not the effect. It’s not the blowing of the wind. What is it? It’s the set of the sail. Alright guys, thanks for tuning in.

Thanks for playing it. I love the comments. I love seeing your names pop up here. Appreciate you plugging in. This is day 30. Remember to be responsible. It’s easy to it’s also easy not to. So take back your existence, or die like a punk.
