The Wellness Series // Rules to live by // part 2

18 March 2014

Own it, take responsibility. 
You create everything in your experience; the good, the bad, the incredible, the messy, the excitement, the sadness...all of it. All of your thoughts, your beliefs and your actions create your reality.
Want to find true power in your life?
Start by taking full responsibility from this exact moment.
Drop all of the excuses that are holding you back.
Drop the victim mindset that keeps you playing small.
Drop whatever doesn't serve you.
Bringing awareness and non-judgement to your situation is the first step. Shine a little light on your thoughts, where you shirk responsibility, where you place blame, where you believe you aren't anything other than incredible....shine light on all of it.
Bring presence, bring awareness. Watch what shifts and transforms, you might just be surprised.
Taking FULL responsibility is my idea of freedom.

I now take responsibility for my entire life. I now own all the parts of me, not just the sparkly, shiny parts.
I own the light and the dark but especially those dark bits...I'm completely unapologetic about those.
Radical transformation is found there.


  1. Thank you for posting this, Nic. I really need this at the moment. I am a firm believer of everything you've been writing lately. But with things going crazy I tend to fall back into feeling as a victim of everything getting worse. I know though, that I need to take responsibility if I want things to change.
    I hope you're having a wonderful week!

  2. I totally agree. Have you ever listened to/read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People ? I got the audio book about 2 or 3 years ago now... and the first thing it taught you was to take responsibility and stop blaming other people for things. I've never been a big blamer but I took this on board and was able to forgive people for bad things they had done that affected my life and my happiness because I didn't want to look back on it and be affected by it anymore. And that helped so much and has made me feel a lot more content and, as you say, free. I highly recommend that audio book !! :) x

  3. Preach! Seriously, very well said ;)
