So, you are the reason why your career isn’t where you want it to be right now, and holding onto the belief that it’s someone else’s fault or something else’s fault.
For example: if the industry I’m in, it’s too competitive, there are no jobs in my industry right now, or it’s the economy.
It’s not good so I can’t get a job, or there are no jobs available, or the recruiters aren’t getting back to me yet.
It’s not my fault because I’ve done everything I can, yet the recruiter isn’t getting back to me. The university career center isn’t helping me.
This is your outsourcing to someone else when in fact you are in total control. Yes, other people are going to promise you things, and they’re going to want to help you, but nobody is as invested in your career success as you are.
Therefore, you need to realize that you are 100% responsible for what happens.
Look, I get it. It is easier to feel like you were the victim and the things that you did didn’t work out, and there’s nothing else that you can do, and it’s to your fault. And I understand that a lot of us get benefit out of thinking this way.
You may get the benefit of feeling like a failure. You might be able to feel sorry for yourself, and that might give you a benefit.
But, it’s not going to help you in the end because you’re still going to end up in the exact same place. And because of that failure, you’re in control.
So whenever something doesn’t work out, you have a choice.
You can decide to do something else, or you can decide to quit and blame someone else or blame external circumstances.
I bet you, you can’t name a single person who has become really successful and blamed some external circumstances for their success.
That was them. They took the action. They were the ones who made things happen, and that’s what successful people do.
Successful people go out and make things happen.
That’s not how successful people act, and I bet you can’t name one that does that.
So instead, I challenge you to try taking responsibility. Try living your life, and get your career on track by everything that you do.
So, I do this 100% in my life, in my business. I show my team, my husband, my family, that the world and my life is mine and I create it. No matter what is happening around me, I’m not a victim to outside circumstances. I’m not a victim of the economy.
I’m not a victim to somebody who said no to me or somebody who didn’t deliver.
I’m the creator and I am a powerful person who has the ability to go out there and make things happen.
If you don’t, someone else is going to be doing it, and you’re going to look at that person and be like, “Oh, well, why can’t I have what they have?”
This is the reason why.
So you have a choice right now at this moment, and it’s not a choice that you can agree with right now just because you’re inspired at the moment.
It’s a choice that will change the direction of your entire life.
So do you choose to blame other people, external circumstances for your life and everything that’s gone wrong?
Do you choose to take full responsibility for your life and your career, even when it’s difficult, and especially when it’s difficult?
So choose wisely, because your life and your career depend on it. And I don’t say this to be harsh or anything. I say this because it was a big epiphany that I had, and once I realized that, once I realized that all my failed attempts were in my control, it meant that everything that I looked at in my life that I didn’t like, I had created.
Therefore, I could create something better if I wanted to.
So, it might, depending on where you are, I’m sure you have things in your life that you’re very proud to have created, and you’re very happy about.
And I’m sure there are things in your life that you don’t like and look at them in your life. “I wish that was better, or “I wish that was different.”
The powers are yours, my friend. You can change it.
