Most of us look outside of ourselves for reasons as to why we are not experiencing that which we desire.

According to the law of attraction, everything that is created in our outside world is the result of what takes place internally. Every thought we think, every word we speak and every action we take is like planting a seed; a seed that emerges when the timing is right.

In life, you either get results or you blame, there is no in between. When you get a result and own it, whether you perceive it to be desirable or not, you become empowered through the wisdom that is found in recognizing how your thoughts, words, and actions create the results you receive.

Those who lack knowledge of their ability to create their own reality give reasons that blame their environment for the results they receive. Any time you give a reason, even when it seems to be real and true, you are saying that what is happening outside of yourself is more powerful than your ability to transform it, and that is not true.

Being the change you wish to see begins with taking ownership and responsibility for everything that is happening in your life right now. It begins within each of us, in our relationships, with our families and in our homes. It begins with simple things like smiling at someone before they smile at you. Loving someone regardless of them loving you back. Believing in your dreams regardless of their outcomes, extending kindness and respect to someone you may not always think deserves it.

This concept may be hard to understand, but like it or not, we are all the authors and architects of the results we experience in our lives. Understanding this is empowering and living it ultimately creates the kind of world each of us wishes for.
