Over my years in the fitness industry, I’ve worked with countless clients who have really struggled. They’ve struggled to get started. They’ve struggled to stick with it.
It seems so often life just takes control and we buy into being too busy or too tired. The truth is that we are 100% responsible for everything in our lives.
Where you are in your health and fitness is a result of your choices.
Sure, things like disease happen that are beyond our control…but we still CHOOSE how we respond.
We MUST take ownership and personal responsibility for every single aspect of our lives from our weight and body, to our daily happiness levels, to how we spend our time, to where we are in life.
Having coached hundreds of people, I've seen personal responsibility embodied so beautifully in even the toughest situations.
I've also seen tremendous amounts of blame placed for life situations. Here's the thing about blame...it gets you nowhere because it changes NOTHING.
It's much easier to blame than to take personal responsibility, so it is the natural default for many people, which is why I wanted to bring awareness to you about it today.
One of my top values in both business and in life is PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.
Take personal responsibility for your success and your life because no one can do it for you.
As a coach, I've written programs that change people's lives. But they must be implemented by the client fully and as designed. You can't pick and choose which parts to follow, and you have to always be honest with yourself about what's really going on.
Once you own that your current situation is a result of your choices, it becomes clear what needs to change and what can stay the same.
If you're unhappy in a marriage, you can choose to stay or leave. If you're unhappy with your body, you can choose to change it. If you’re unhappy with your job and career, you can reinvent yourself. It's all within your control.
So, I challenge you today...do you take personal responsibility 100% of the time and focus on controlling the things you can control, or do you place blame?
I realize this message is a bit of tough love, but I promise it will serve you well if you take responsibility for every component of your life. :)
