Does your life feel less than fulfilling? Are you waiting for good things to come to you? Do you lack motivation to make real changes in the quality of your life? Are you waiting for someone else to tell you what to do? Are you the type of person who sits back and lets others make decisions about your life? Do you hang onto a need to have others look after you?
Well if you identify with any of these questions then I can almost definitively say that you are entertaining the fear of taking full responsibiliy for your life. In so doing I think you will immediately agree when I say that you are likely feeling empty, anxious, unfulfilled, depressed, frustrated or angry.
The state I just described is the result of hanging on the the "fear of taking repsonsility for your life".
So I would like to ask you a simple question. That is: What is the benefit to you of hanging onto this fear?
Now I know that given your state of existence you will likely say that there is no benefit. I would like to show you howvever that unconsciously you are buying into some false beliefs about the supposed benefits of hanging onto the fear.
Here we go:
1. The benefit of hanging onto the fear of taking responsibility for one's life is so that,
2. One doesn't have to be acountable when something goes wrong, so that,
3. In not being accountable one can avoid feeling inadequate, incompetent or incapapable, so that,
4. One can feel better about themselves.
So in summary:
(A) The fear of taking responsibilty for one's life makes one feel better about one's self.
Does (A) resonate as a true statement for you? If you're not sure notice how it feels to be stuck in the fear of being unable to take responsibility for your life.
I think you will readily notice that it makes you feel stuck, inadequate, fearful, incompetent, stupid, useless, trapped, dependent, weak, lowers your self worth, your self estem and your self confidence. In summary it makes you feel like less than a normal human being.
So, if we return to statement (A) again. does it resonate as true for you? If you recognize that it does not then you are on you way to freeing yourself of this fear and taking greater command of your life.
