‘Learn how to choose better so you can have better’
Dr Phil McGraw
Yesterday I wrote about the lady addicted to Psychics. She was afraid to make her own choices. She allowed others to make them for her.
In his book, ‘Life Strategies’, Dr Phil writes about Choices. When I first read it, I found it hard to believe but experience has shown me that he’s right. We are all responsible for what happens to us.
‘And the Oscar goes to…’
We all know someone who plays the ‘Victim’, don’t we?
‘He ruined my life’ she says…
You allowed him to ruin your life.
‘My boss is so mean to me’ he says.
Is he? And whose responsibility is that? Don’t let him.
If you choose to overlook the behaviour then he’ll carry on being mean to you.
‘My elderly mother always gets her own way’, she says.
Because you choose to let her get her own way.
Dr Phil writes that we are indeed responsible for our lives. Responsible, not to blame.
What are you choosing to do in your life that you’d like to stop doing?
Tomorrow I’ll write about
why we avoid making different choices.
