And when we’re living in fear, we’re much more likely to put up with things...

from this perspective look back to see how your experiences of today provided you with exactly the learning you needed to become the “you” of your future. Try it, I guarantee that you’ll find it a truly liberating experience.

If the challenges we face strengthen us and provide the foundations for future “greatness”, then perhaps we should be encouraged by the seemingly insurmountable obstacles we find in our way. They’re the ladders to our future – and seeing the snakes in this way helps free our minds from whether the things that happen to us are good or bad. From this new vantage point, they’re all good.

Seeing it from this perspective helps free the mind from its ego bonds – most of which are based around fear.

And when we’re living in fear, we’re much more likely to put up with things that frankly, aren’t helping us on either our spiritual or emotional journey.

So, let me ask you a question – what are YOU tolerating at the moment?

A friend from New Zealand asked me the very same question a little while back, and at first, I was somewhat taken aback.

But once you’ve been asked it, it’s one of those questions which keep coming back to haunt you as you go about your daily business – and in fact, I was so provoked by my friend’s question that I was moved to ask it in a recent survey of my clients, and their responses were pretty interesting too.

So what did their answers reveal? Superficially, the answers were different – although many revolved around the age-old problems regarding relationships, money and

health. But actually, most of the difficulties could be fairly easily resolved with a little willpower, commitment and focus.

And as a coach, I’d say that willpower, commitment and focus are much of what I bring to my clients – but isn’t there something else which is actually more important?

There sure is – and that “something” is the concept of “personal responsibility”.

I find that clients who understand that they have personal responsibility for their success are much more likely to succeed in their endeavours – and I’m sure that there are plenty of coaches out there who know just how hard it is to motivate and inspire someone when they hold onto a blaming attitude.

Why it’s important not to make blame the name of the game…

While blaming others for our own lack of success can be tempting, it’s worth bearing in mind that when we blame others, we make ourselves powerless.

And as shocking as it sometimes seems, not everyone is ready to make the shift from playing the blame game to adopting an attitude of personal responsibility.

Attachment to our personal “stories” and the “labels” that we carry – often from childhood – can keep us stuck in the very pattern that we declare loudly that we want to leave behind.

In fact, I’d go so far as to say that our personal stories (after all, they form our identities) are the number 1 cause of self-sabotage. If we’re to live up to our full potential, then we’re going to have to make the decision to let go of our attachment to our personal stories.
