Episode 037: Three Stages of Gratitude – Part I – Personal Responsibility

In this first of three episodes in my Gratitude Series, I want to begin by talking about a topic close to my heart: personal responsibility. How you think, feel, and behave is the cornerstone to personal responsibility.

Start by asking yourself this, How does responsibility work in my life?

Everything going on with you is your creation. You may not understand how you are creating it, but it is important to remind yourself that you are not a victim and take full responsibility for all of it.

My big shift happened exactly this way. When I accepted personal responsibility for where I was, working myself to the bone with a piss poor attitude, my life began to change.

Once you begin to accept personal responsibility, you remove blame and become less susceptible to victimhood. In short, you take your authority back. With the removal of blame, you are now in a place where you can change it.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The importance of personal responsibility and how it relates to gratitude.
  • That you are the cause of everything in your life, the good and the bad.
  • How shifting your perception through personal responsibility opens you up to the shift you are looking for.

    Buying your idea of “personal responsibility” is difficult but thanks to Mr. Neagle, it is getting me on the track to progress.

    1. No one said it would be easy Mohammad, if they did we’d all be awake and living our best life. That is certainly not the case. That being said, the personal responsibility piece really gets under peoples skin. When it’s going well, it’s easy to take credit for them. When it’s not, they typically push back and are quick to blame. Ask yourself, do I really want freedom from these thoughts or be held captive by them? If you want the former, then accept responsibility TODAY for all the things that are in your life. Good and bad. That will get you even more on the fast track to freedom! I appreciate you listening and for the post.
