The easiest thing is to overlook what is going on in your own life because your energy is centered on others. You think you are a very responsible person but you are so busy taking responsibility for everyone and neglect the responsibility for yourself. Your life gets out of control when you take so many responsibilities and fell angry, exhausted, and bitter all the time.
If you want to live a powerful life, you must take the present state of your life as your responsibility and pay attention to what you need. Following are the ways you can live life by taking your own responsibility:
Make yourself a priority:
You need to make yourself a priority and set out time to pamper your mind, body, and soul. Begin by eating healthy and doing exercise on daily basis. When you are working, take small breaks and fuel your body with proper nutrients to get back to work with more energy. Talk to yourself kindly and learn to respect yourself in every possible manner.
Do not make comparisons:
Your dreams give you hope to live your life the way you want. But when you get stuck into comparison, the world seems like a scary place to be. Stop yourself from getting into the comparison game and pay attention to your own progress. Trust yourself and make serious efforts to reach your goals.
Be the change:
Instead of complaining why things aren’t right, make an effort to change them the way you want. Criticizing others won’t help you bring any changes; instead, an inner change would help to make an impact. Learn to live more concisely and it will help you get an answer to most of your problems.
Learn to forgive:
In order to stay out of the dark, learn to forgive the people who wronged you even on so many levels. It is because when you forgive, you free yourself from anger and resentment that you keep holding on otherwise.
Keep a journal for good stuff:
In order to live a more powerful life, make a journal that holds all the good stuff. Whenever you are going through hard time, pick that journal and go through it. It will remind you of all the good moments that you had and all the amazing experiences. It will remind you how beautiful your life is and how lucky you are to be living it.
You feel more in control when you help others instead of just focusing on your own self. Develop a habit of helping those who are in need without asking for anything in return. Be there for them when they need you and talk to them with love and kindness. The way you treat others indicates how you want yourself to be treated by others.
