Yesterday's Feel Good Time on Twitch featured a few blurbs from The Big Leap.

I enjoyed reflecting on how far I've come from blaming my circumstances and feeling helpless to taking full responsibility for my actions.

Where I once lived in the space of thinking I had no choices, today I live in full awareness of my choices and have been able to create myself financially secure and full of potential.

Example:

I got myself under debt and ruined my credit early. So for 15+ years I would say, “I can't pay my bills on time because I'm in debt and I have no choices about that.”

After working my way out of debt and making more income than ever – I noticed I STILL failed to pay my bills on time.  Interesting, right?

The debt was a circumstance I blamed – but in truth I had become a person who didn't pay her bills on time. I had allowed temporary circumstances to reshape my identity.

Breaking out of that mindset was tough – but I did it!

Today, I DO pay my bills on time and what do you know? I've got money saved and have begun to create investments.

I'm actively reshaping my identity about money.

What do you think about all this? Do you see an area of your life where you're blaming circumstances and want to take responsibility to create something new?

Leave me a comment and share what you're thinking about!

  1. I think sometimes we can be limited by circumstances, and I am in that situation now. But my faulty thinking is that I am therefore powerless, so there's point in trying to be proactive. Or, to think something can't possibly change, when my own belief is proving me right.

  2. That's so great about getting your debt back on track! I wrote a few blogs about credit cards and how they grab you. I have never paid interest on them, I pay the monthly balance in full plus earn cash back from them. For me it's a win win!
