Moving Toward Success In Life by Focusing on Responsibility

This is a guest post by the fabulous Lucy Rose.

As Ernest Hemingway once said, “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” Self-improvement is the development of self-awareness, allowing you to change your habits, build the best version of yourself, and as a result, enhance your quality of life. However, it is not a quick fix, and takes continuous and honest effort. Through the help of coaches, books, and communities, you can get what you need to foster self-improvement. The first step starts with you. Invest in a coachread books, gather a supportive community or combine these steps to help improve yourself. But first, determine what needs to be improved.

Looking into the Mirror

One of the best steps towards self-improvement is to self-reflection. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What are some unresolved issues that have played a pivotal role in how you go about your daily life? The key to engaging in self-reflection is to be completely honest with yourself. It can be easy to let ego get in the way of seeing what areas of yourself can be improved. It’s important to develop self-awareness and set goals for potential growth. Self-reflection sometimes involves others as well. Asking friends and family for feedback can give insight to how others perceive you. It is always easier to focus on the good aspects of one’s self rather than the negative. However, a key factor in self-improvement involves a careful focus on responsibility.

Learning to be Accountable

Taking responsibility means having accountability not only for your actions, but for your life. Going forth in improving yourself, you have to mature. Stop blaming other people or situations for misfortunes and negative outlooks on life. Life is unfair and although you could have been the victim and those feelings and thoughts may be justified, where does blaming get you? It only leads to resentment and powerlessness blocking you from living a more fulfilling life. In the end, your life is about you, not them. Reclaiming this power will only make your life better.

Accepting responsibility also accepts emotions as a part of daily life. Acknowledge your emotions, the positive and negative. No one can be happy all the time. Thus we have to make sure we realise what actions we are taking when we feel emotions. Taking responsibility of your emotions and being honest with yourself allows you the opportunity to improve yourself.

Responsibility over one’s action and mind means a variety of things. Having a consistent sleep schedule, eating healthy, exercising regularly, avoiding toxic influences, reflecting on one’s self. One of the most important realisations of taking responsibility for your life is having integrity and credibility for yourself and for others. You can’t take responsibility if you do not follow through with actions you determine will improve your life. It’s important to stick to your word. This will help you stay focused on your goals and ambitions. By taking responsibility for you own initiative, responsibility for your own success.

Why Project 1 Million Matters To Me.

PROJECT 1 MILLION is a project to help one million people by 2020 get better at time management and become more productive.

I passionately believe that once you know what needs doing, when and how at all times, your stress is reduced, your health improves, your relationships with loved ones improve and your goals get achieved. Overall, being better at time management and becoming more productive changes peoples lives for the better and I want the whole world to experience these wonderful, life-changing benefits.

Stress is one of the world’s biggest killers today and a lot of that stress is a result of the huge amount of stuff that is being thrown at us every day. We have stuff we have to do for our boss, our colleagues, our families and friends and so on. It is just relentless. Messages, emails, commitments and appointments. It just does not stop.

The problem we all face is how to manage all that stuff being thrown at us and that is where having a simple, workable system in place that allows you to focus on what is important to you, while at the same time allowing you to collect and organise all the stuff thrown at you into a trusted system so you can evaluate it later when you have more time.

I have been very fortunate in life because I discovered the power of being organised a long time ago. I’ve always had the desire to manage my time, to keep my things organised in a logical way and to give myself space and focus to work on the things that are important to me. This has meant I have little stress in my life and gives me the space to focus on the things that are important to me. And that feeling, that way of living life and the happiness and structure it brings with it is what I want to share with as many people as I can. In fact, I want to share it will one million people over the next two years.

This is where I would like to ask you for your help. Please share my latest course with as many people as you know. The Beginner’s Guide To Building Your Own Productivity System is a FREE online course designed to help people, no matter where they are today, to create a system that works for them that is minimal to set up and very easy to put in to practice and follow.

This course is the first of many new projects I will be producing this year and next to help people discover the benefits of being great at time management, at using the digital tools we all carry around with us every day and learning how to be productive with the things that are important to us — whatever they may be.

Thank you for reading this little message and thank you for your amazing support. Without you, none of this would be possible and I feel so humbled and honoured to be in a position to help as many people as I can discover the fantastic benefits of being organised and productive.
