Victimhood and Accountability

18 Jul 2018   Shanti Gowans
When we discover something is going wrong in our lives we have two choices. We can complain and blame, or change. You must learn not to beat yourself up when things go "wrong" because that creates a very low vibration and by doing that you attract more of the same thing.  Instead you can ask, "How can this serve me?" 
In other words, if things did not turn out the way you want them to, you can, at least want to pull one good thing out of the experience.  So place your focus is on what you can take away from the experience that will help you the next time. Then move on.

Remember, if you think your problems are "out there" then you will continue to look "out there" for the solutions. Keep in mind that if you blame someone else for your problems then they have to change in order for you to have what you want and be happy. It never works.

Too many people take the victim road and end up in a ditch. When you play the victim you feed the victim, and the universe sends you more opportunities to be one.

Riches flow to those who are accountable. Why not take accountability to the next level.  Consider being accountable for every single thing in your life.  That's right - I said everything - even when you are convinced it is not your "fault". You will always experience the greatest results when you become fully accountable.  Only when you become accountable for everything can you be responsible to change anything.
