Take ownership of your life: others won’t save you
When I thought what the reason is, I realized that there are two explanations for why others don’t help when you need them the most.
1. You remind them what they could have achieved.
First, by creating the life you want, you remind your friends and family of their deeply hidden dreams. Unintentionally, you might trigger their doubts and accusations that they haven’t started doing what they want.
To my surprise, being on the way to creating a happy and prosperous life, can cause a lot of envy. On the one hand, your closest people want to be happy for you. On another side, they cannot because they aren’t satisfied with themselves and you remind them they could have achieved in their lives.
2. They test your readiness to show up for yourself.
The second reason is that if you don’t stand 100% behind your dreams and don’t believe it entirely, others also don’t think that you mean it sincerely.
When you completely commit to your dreams and take full responsibility for achieving them, then other people can feel your determination from you. Others want to be surrounded by people who know what they want in life and who are ready to make it happen.
When you take responsibility for your life, you’re able to learn from times when things don’t go the way you want and see what you need to change as opposed to wait for circumstances to change miraculously.
When you take responsibility, you’ll see new opportunities because you’ll know that your success is up to you. It’ll inspire you to make the right actions and subsequently things in your life will start to move in the right direction.
There is nothing as powerful as committing to your dreams.
When something goes wrong, instead of blaming others, you’ll be able to look at the situation with a willingness to understand and see what could have been done better. Next time you’ll make better decisions and shift the whole situation.
It doesn’t make sense to get stuck in the situation by waiting for someone to save you or blaming others. It’s your life and your decisions. Others don’t care so much as you like to think. You’re the creator of your experiences.
