Doing this exercise, it became very clear to me where I had and had not taken 100% responsibility. When I looked at the results, it wasn’t easy to admit or accept responsibility.Most of us have been conditioned to blame something outside of ourselves for the parts of our life we don’t like. We blame our parents our bosses, our friends, the media, the government, the economy, the weather, our clients, our spouse – in fact anything we can pin the blame on – not looking at where the real problem is – ourselves.
Dr Robert Resnick has a very simple formula that makes the idea of 100% responsibility even clearer. Here it is.
E + R = O
(Event + Response = Outcome)
Personal Power accepts that although we can’t always control everything that happens to us, we have the free will and conscience to control our responses.
Here are three simple questions you can ask yourself to measure your level of Personal Power is:
- Can I always choose my response to other peoples behavior or events?
- How much control over my life do I really have?
- Do I feel that I am the architect of my life or is someone else designing it for me?
- Have I created habits that are not in line with my values and principles?
If you would like to increase your personal power through high self-awareness, have more control over your thoughts rather than your thoughts having control over you and increase your circle of influence – simply book into our next workshop “The Power of Self-Awareness”
New dates for 2018 workshops have been added.
