Hello, it’s Shirley from your PatientNextDoor Support Team.
I don’t know about you, but there was a time in my life when I wanted someone, anyone else to take the reigns and run my life.
The problem with that thinking was that I was the only one who could be the leader in my life. No one else could.
The reasons are simple.
No one else knew what I truly wanted from life
No one else could change me.
No one else could or wanted to take responsibility for my actions and words
But most of all, I am an adult and adults take responsibility for all they do, good or bad. We set priorities in our lives and don’t blame others for our failures or allow others to take the glory for our successes.
Putting it bluntly, allowing or expecting someone else to fulfill our needs and make us into their image is behaving like a child.
Yet, when we take charge of our lives we must remember one vital thing.
We are responsible for ourselves and cannot change someone else. It is impossible, so don’t try.
Yes, children are an exception to the rule. They require our protection and guidance. But adults are not children.
Taking charge of our lives is the most powerful example we can set for our children and our world depends on us doing so.
I hope you are enjoying the motivational quotes and sayings I try to bring you every weekday. They are meant to inspire thought and to encourage you on your travels through life.
