I remember when we moved to the mountains and the Power Ball jackpot was at nearly $1 billion. I so desperately wanted to win. Then I could move back home and have everything I’d ever wanted. I wanted it so bad I cried. We bought a ticket. We didn’t win (obviously). I was seriously bummed. How ridiculous is that? I was so desperate for a different future but, I put it all in someone else’s hands. — Now, it’s in my hands. I got sick of blaming everyone else for my shortcomings. Sick of playing the victim. I was overweight and I blamed everyone else for not telling me when I started gaining. Or I blamed it on all the catered food at work. But it was on me 100%. Didn’t make enough money, husbands fault. Everything was always everyone else’s fault. — Nothing changed until I started taking ownership. Business isn’t successful? I need to work harder. Overweight? I need to make my health a priority. You get my point. Stop playing victim. You are not a victim of your circumstances. You have the power to change everything if you are willing to work for it and take ownership of your life.
