When you accept 100% responsibility for your business, your life, and what you are going to be and do, powerful personal changes take place.
Here is a little formula that I have learned that helps me to remember the power of personal responsibility in my life.
E + R = O
Event + Response = Outcome
So any time you don’t get exactly what you want, you have one of two choices:
1) You can blame the event (E) for your lack of results (O); or
2) You can instead simply change your responses (R) to the events (E) – the way things are – until you get the outcome that you want (O)
NUMBER TWO IS THE MORE EMPOWERING CHOICE
If you don’t get what you want, when you want it, then change your response (R). Change your thinking, change your communication, change the pictures you hold in your head (your images of yourself and the world) and change your behavior (the things you do). That is really what you have control over anyway!!
