How To Take Responsibility Of Your Life

Editors Note: This is a fantastic guest post by M.Farouk Radwan, founder of 2knowmyself.

There are two types of people in the world. Those who reach what they want and those who make excuses. Most people never reach what they want because they get involved in the blame game.

After all its much easier to find something or someone to blame then to take responsibility of your life and to do your best to get what you want.

Contrary to common beliefs people don’t blame others because they are responsible for their misfortunes but they blame them because they are too afraid to take responsibility for their own lives!

If you are serious about success then you need to know how to take share of your life. In this post I will tell you how to do so.

How to take responsibility of your life

So how can someone take responsibility of his life? It all starts by being brave!

Do you know that lack of courage is the main reason that forces people to blame others?

The person who doesn’t have enough courage will try to escape from:

  • 1. Things that might test his self esteem
  • 2. Challenges that might test his self worth
  • 3. Situations that let him come close to his weaknesses
  • 4. Failure , criticism and rejection

The person who fears these things or some of them will never admit that he fears them because it would be too shameful for him to do so.

As a result his subconscious mind finds itself stuck in a big problem, it wants the person to feel good about himself while in the same time it doesn’t want him to admit that he has these flaws.

And here is where the magical solution comes, finding something to blame and thus preventing the self esteem of the person from being affected!

Things that people blame

People who don’t have enough courage blame everything they can blame just to prove to themselves that they couldn’t have done better. Life is unfair, I am not lucky, the tough economy and many of the popular phrases we come across every day are no more than escapement methods that people use to free themselves from the responsibility!

Be Brave

Do you want to end this problem today?

Just do one thing, be brave!

Develop your courage. Its ok to be afraid as long as this fear doesn’t stop you.

The day you admit that you are responsible for everything that happens In your life is the same day where you will be in control of your life.

    Hi Farouk! Good to see you again! Taking responsibility is something most people abhor. It just seems to tiresome to take that step and own up. The blame game is so much easier! Which is why, for anything to be a success, we must have a sense of ownership. Why is why, people find it hard to appreciate others who step forth and do things, because they never know the effort involved. Unless responsibility is experienced, it can never be enjoyed.

    Fabulous post. Thank you, Farouk and Amit!

    Hey Farouk, Thank you for the simple and awesome guest article. And you’re absolutely right, as soon as you take responsibility for your own results in life, then and only then can you truly take control and steer it in the direction you wish it to go. Thank you! 🙂
