How To Own Your Own Actions

Have you began a lifestyle plan? But feel like you venturing down the same old paths? And fighting with the same old thoughts? It might be another attempt to eat healthier or exercise. Introduce a beauty regime to take care of yourself or start a new hobby. Old actions won’t allow you to achieve your goals or create new habits. It might be time to rewire your mind. Have a spring overhaul beginning this March. Start with owning some of your actions with these 3 questions.

1| Do you play the ‘Blame Game’?

Saying things like. ‘I was doing so well, but…’

  • You have no power over outside external factors, but you do have power over how you react to situations and people.
  • Consider the consequences. If and then if necessary change your thinking to: ‘No one can make me feel, say or do anything without my permission’.

2| Do you Support or Sabotage?

Recognise that little voice that sometimes mumbles or perhaps screams. ‘I’m useless… What’s the point in starting anyway…’

  • You can change the way you think and what you say to yourself from criticism to words of encouragement.
  • Rather than plunge into sabatoging something.
  • Tell yourself that what ever comes along you can handle. It all comes down to whether you think can or you can’t. You might need more discipline to work at building your determination to keep trying.

3| Do you Know Yourself?

The perfect opportunity to be your own detective. Check in with these thoughts. ‘I feel out of control because… or I don’t know where to start…’

    “Do you support or sabotage?” Such an important question to ask ourselves.

    I’d never thought of it that way — support myself the way I would a friend. Wow! Thank you!

    Yes. Why is it the advice we would give a best friend is never good enough for us in a similar situation?

    Very interesting! 🙂

    Abby, sometimes l think it’s because we have more empathy with a friend than we do ourselves.

    You welcome Jessica. It’s like having an exercise buddy who always encourages you to keep reaching towards getting fitter and healthier.

    Thanks Ken. It’s helpful for the many choices we face daily… like whether to eat that cupcake or not.

    It’s easy to blame ourselves – very natural. Thank you for reminding us to have a healthy response in negative circumstances. God gives us insight, strength, and courage.

    Supporting myself the way I do a friend is very difficult for me, because of the voices in my head telling me that I am selfish and not thinking of others. However, maybe if I reframe it in the way that if I support myself I will also empower myself to serve others more effectively..that may work. Thank you for your sound advice!

    Own your routine and practice consistency. That’s good advice. Thanks, Ava, for sharing your thoughts.

    Excellent tips here! It really is easy to undermine ourselves when we want to make positive changes. Thank you for this encouragement!

    As a registered clinical Counsellor I really appreciated your encouragement for readers to honestly face and own their issues and behaviours. For there is no possibility for change or growth unless we admit there is an issue or problem and face them. It is the first step towards healing and transformation.
