According to World O’Meter, there are 7.8 billion people on the planet.
That means there are 7.8 billion opinions and perspectives too.
None of them are inherently right and none of them are inherently wrong. They all come from the filters and realities of each individual.
In her book The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, Debbie Ford says, “Each of us is a microcosm that reflects and contains the macrocosm.”
This means we’re all part of the whole. If we are part of the whole that must mean that we influence the whole, and that the whole influences us.
I’m sure you’ve heard that there is a pretty big shift going on in the world right now. I think it’s rather obvious whether you’ve heard it or not. The shift is occurring on both a global level (the macrocosm) as well as an individual level (the microcosm).
Whether it’s a pandemic of global proportions, social injustices on any level and of any kind, or an internal struggle within yourself, there’s a really easy way to help move the shift in a positive direction.
The easiest way to do this is to take personal responsibility for our part in what’s going on in the whole.
How do we do that?
There are a lot of ways to take personal responsibility. These are my suggestions, and by no means is this an exhaustive list. These are some of the ways I have found to help me and my coaching clients create the lives we say we want:
1. Do your work to release the baggage that’s creating internal conflict (aka – take care of your mental and emotional health).
There are many ways people have released baggage from the past. One of the best ways I have found to let go of the negative emotions and limiting beliefs I’ve carried with me most of my life is through Mental and Emotional Release ® and Huna.
2. Set some goals that feel a little scary.
If we don’t have something to look forward to we usually don’t do much of anything at all. We have to create something to go after to get the ball rolling. And if it makes us a little uncomfortable, even better.
3. Do the things that will help you achieve those goals.
It’s just as easy to sit on our asses and do nothing as it is to get up and get moving. Jeff Olson wrote a whole book on this called The Slight Edge.
4. Keep moving toward those goals.
When we set goals that move us toward the things we actually want, they are more likely to be achieved. If we set goals to get away from something, eventually we’ve moved far enough away from the thing we don’t want that we lose momentum. If you don’t really know what you want, I invite you to sit down and figure it out.
5. Reach out when you need help.
There’s no shame in getting help. That’s one mindset I had to get over to get where I am today. Remember, we’re parts of the whole.
It really is as simple as taking personal responsibility. It really is that simple to change the world.
