Life doesn’t happen TO you

Life doesn’t happen to you! Yet many people believe this. We actually create everything in our life, even the things we don’t like. Sometimes it is easier to stick with what you know, even when you know it doesn’t work. Then you don’t have to take any risks.

There are times when we say “I can’t believe this happened to me”. Guess what? It didn’t happen to you. And if you want to believe that, you will feel very disempowered and out of control of your life.

We create experiences that help us to learn. Every single thing we do is a learning opportunity – why did I make that decision, what could I have done differently to change the outcome, why does that hurt me so, is this really how I want to be etc.

When we believe something ‘happened’ to us it leaves us in a place of inaction and often pain. When we are prepared to take responsiblity and see how and why we create our lives we gain greater insight into ourselves and we have more choices. 

 So next time you find yourself saying “I can’t believe this happened to me” take a step back and see if you can see how you created it. When you truly connect with this, you will be empowered in your life and prepared to take responsibility for all that you create.
