Secret 5: Personal Responsibility
Let Go of Your Story
Last time, I told you about the incredible power that you unleash when you take personal responsibility for every thought, feeling, action and result.
Part of taking responsibility involves your story–the tale you tell about your circumstances and what’s happened to you in the past.
You have to realize that regardless of the facts, you created the story around those facts.
We do this all the time. The second we hear, see or think something, we start creating a story about it. These stories are based on our beliefs, values, perception and what other people have said. They are rarely based in truth.
Too often our stories cast us as a victim and reinforce a sense of disempowerment.
When people tell me about their situation or circumstance, I’ll listen to them once, maybe twice, then I say, “Wait a second. Nothing is going to change until you drop that story.”
Get Clear About Why You’re Holding On
Admittedly, some stories are very difficult to let go of; for instance, if you’ve been abused or sexually molested. But despite the horror that was done to you, you can still let it go. Those incidents don’t have to define who you are.
If you say that you want to let go of your story, but you can’t, on some level, you are choosing not to.
If so, you have to ask yourself: “Why would I hold onto something so terrible?”
In most cases, it comes down to safety and security. That story is something you know; it’s part of your identity, and you think it helps you make sense of what happened to you.
You may also think it protects you from ever experiencing that pain again or by holding onto it you’re doing something to the perpetrator.
The only thing you’re doing is causing stress and harmful chemicals to flow through your body, which sucks up your life energy.
Holding onto your story does absolutely nothing for you.
Drop Your Story Like a Hot Rock
If I put a burning hot stone in your hand, you would drop it right away.
You wouldn’t have to think, “This thing is killing me. Why won’t I let this thing go?” You would automatically, instinctively, drop it as fast as you could.
It is possible to do the same with your story.
“Forgiveness” is a controversial word, but what it really means is to abandon, to let go to the point where it’s as though the event never even happened. That is what you need to do. And it really is easy. It’s as simple as just letting go.
One of the traps we fall into as human beings is the need to explain. We want to give meaning to everything.
I’m not discounting the fact that psychotherapy may be a good answer for some people. However, you could spend 20 years on a therapist’s couch processing what happened to you as a kid. Eventually, you need to let it go and move forward.
What if you didn’t spend the 20 years and just let go of the story?
Drop it like a hot rock. Just let it go.
Become a Champion of Your Life
Once you drop that old story, you become free. You can start to embrace new ideas. Create something fresh.
Rather than seeing yourself as a victim or even a “survivor” of the things that happened to you, you could become a champion of your life.
I tell my clients to create a superhero for themselves, a larger-than-life figure that actually represents the truth of who they are ~ it represents the champion that lives inside.
You don’t have to settle for being anything less than who you really are.
You are a beautiful, shining beacon. And you can be an absolute champion of anything.
