Truly Powerful People (75)


Join me in inspiring truly powerful people. Each day I will add a new thought, story or idea to support your quest and mine.

Once, when arguing for my misery, Ana-the-wise giggled at my total dedication to unhappiness and offered me this exercise:
She told me to start my day by looking in the mirror and saying out loud to myself these three phrases:

I am responsible for my own happiness.
I am responsible for creating my own happiness.
I am responsible for my own peace of mind.

She asked me for 30 days to repeat the phrases at the start of my day. I grumbled but agreed to try it. I am not the mantra-guy so I held little belief that my dedication to misery would change with an affirmation.

I challenge you to look into your eyes every day and tell yourself that you are responsible for your happiness; you will hear the word, “responsible.” I am responsible. Not my boss. Not my circumstance. Not my friends or my parents or my partner or the guy at the grocery store. I am. And the thing that I am responsible for creating is my happiness.

Here’s what Ana-the-wise knows: the path to wonderment opens when you claim your happiness. When you own it, when you are standing in your own center and not trying to claim a center belonging to another, you regain the eyes that see with awe. The full spectrum of vibrant dynamic life – all of it- is available to you and you merely need to own that it is yours to create.
