Taking Responsibility For Yourself

Are you feeling defensive?

Do you feel defensive and angry all the time?

Do you wish people behaved differently?

Do you complain and blame others for ruining your day?

Say no to the “blame game”

Well, here’s something to consider: No one makes you think or feel a certain way.

I learned this:

I choose my thoughts and beliefs about myself and my life. I choose my own actions.

When we stop blaming others, we take responsibility for ourselves. This was a game-changer for me because, here’s the thing— I never saw myself as a victim.

Are you playing the blame game? Are you playing the victim? (It’s so eye-opening when you recognize it in yourself!)

Here’s the good news:

You are responsible. You have full control over yourself. You can take charge and change your thoughts and feelings.

Everyone can use a coach

Taking charge

When I needed to take a  closer look at how my thoughts and beliefs were affecting my life, I asked for help. I needed a fresh pair of eyes to help me see how to make choices that better served me.

Ask for help.

You don’t need to figure it out by yourself. You’re not alone.

If any part of this resonates with you, I get it. Up until recently I’ve felt this way myself. Let’s work together on moving towards thinking different. Schedule a time to talk with me now.
