It’s insane to me that responsibility and accountability are so often conflated with accepting blame in our society. They are so wildly different. Taking responsibility means we look at where we have contributed to a situation and we own that contribution, never believing that another could be solely responsible for our experience. Being responsible doesn’t mean we are to blame; it simply means we are “able” to “respond.” Being able to respond means having agency to affect a different outcome. I means taking ownership of our lives. It means empowerment. The only true way to be personally #empowered is to be accountable.
One of the greatest challenges in creating a joyful, peaceful and abundant life is taking responsibility for what you do and how you do it.
As long as you can blame someone else, be angry with someone else, point a finger at someone else, you are not taking full responsibility for your life
There is only one person responsible for the quality of your life.
That person is YOU.❤ #responsibility#accountability#youareentirelyuptoyou
Need to hear the things you agree with so you feel like “They’re my people”? Conditional relating. Need to manage the when, where, and how of your connections? Situational relating. Want to see what you can get before you see if you want to give? Transactional relating. Only want to relate to the things you like, the things you have a yes for? Binary relating. Willing to give up what you care about to get along, fit in, belong? Compromised relating. All work gets done through relating, and that includes your work, that includes the work of World Making—relating that is situational, transactional, binary, compromised, or conditional in the face of differences (always in the face of difference) ain’t going to get it done. Period. Show up. Do the work. Do the thing you say you’re here for. The difference you want to make is waiting. #worldmaker#responsibility#integrity#sovereignty#radicalrelating#LEADership#lead#leader
Sales Evolve and so do the #Baes & #Boos openin' & closin' the deals. 💋
When you find yourself changin', you'll notice that some will #support you and some will look at you with questions...tons of #questions , even. 💋
Your only #responsibility is to be secure with what you're changin' & why you're makin' changes, because clearly you have a reason for your new #actions . Right? Right!
You will feel uncomfortable and others will feel uncomfortable -- and this is JUST FINE.
You stay with your new ways and people will soon find that the old you is no longer around--and they must RESPOND ACCORDINGLY. #RiskAndReceive ™
The 2.0 You can kill [aka increase] the #salesgoals you have...trust me & #workwith me, I'd love that!
~ Shifting Perception ~
Sometimes it’s easy to get stuck with a particular way of perceiving a situation. I personally noticed that I’ve always had an aversion towards rainy days, and always just wished every day would be hot and sunny. Sunny equaled good and rainy equaled a not so good day. Then we started growing our own food.
When you have a garden full of flowers, vegetables and herbs, the work is not done after you put the seeds into the ground. You need to take care of them, pick weeds, give them love and nourishment - but most importantly water them! My husband has been carrying water from the river to the plants past week, because we didn’t have a water pump yet to pump it straight to the field. These past days we’ve been really busy and praying for some rain! Today it’s raining and for the first time I fully really understand to be grateful for every drop that is falling from the skies! Totally shifted my perception of rain.
There are so many things like rain in our lives, that it really is our perception of it that makes us think something is ”good” or ”bad”. Try it, just for fun - try thinking of a few things in your life you always feel are ”negative”, and try to shift your perception of it. How could this thing serve me or others? How does this bring me closer to love? Obviously there are things that don’t serve us - like some relationships or situations, but even then you have a chance to change your perception!
You are the one who has the chance to learn to always look for the positive teaching. ”I am thankful for this person and their behavior, because it is teaching me to draw my own boundaries.” ”I am thankful for this exhaustion, because it is teaching me to love myself more and ask for help and learn to rest.” Honor the feelings that arise on the way, the human experience, but let them go and shift the perception gracefully as soon as you can let go of the hurt or feelings that do not feel good. They are there only to guide you back to love, not for you to hold onto them and keep on whining and suffering. Take in the lesson, make the changes and take full responsibility of your perception of life. It changes everything. #perception
