Be All That You Can Be

In a world where few people are totally responsible for all of their actions, their behaviour, their safety or their impact on the planet it is easy to blame someone or something else for all of their foibles, shortcomings, weaknesses, faults, imperfections, idiosyncrasies, flaws, defects or what is happening to them– get the picture? To quit smoking, lose weight, be a better person, change a habit or give up an addiction – all it takes is self-discipline. It all starts with you and ends with you.

How many times do you hear people say,” I will when I gain self-confidence” or “when someone shows me”? They want someone else to motivate them, guide them and even do it for them so they can sit back reap the rewards. I’m not saying we can’t enlist the help of others at time to time, but to be aware when this become a habit.

Society is set up so that we give away our personal power and to keep us weak & dependent on the system and culture we live in. We are constantly deceived and being fed misinformation about life in general. We are sheep following those that herd us. It is so easy to listen and believe what others say rather than research the truth for ourselves. It’s easier for someone else to grow our food, make our clothes, create waste facilities and water systems. We create roles so that others cook, clean, iron or provide for us. It is easier to pay for someone else to do it and become dependent on them, yet when the system fails the blame falls on others. Self-sufficiency is lost from the modern western world. In this world of instant gratification, fast food and self-glorification, we as a society have become complacent.

Our potential to be the unlimited beings we have been created to be is quite achievable, but only if we start desiring to be fully responsible for ourselves. Self-discipline is required. It is easy to say “I can’t” or “I’m not good enough.” But right here and now I ask – why not? It also takes persistence. The beliefs, habits and life patterns that have been set up within us are in-ground and it may take time to change, but it will happen. It all depends on how much you want it!

Society has moulded me and I too currently fail at being responsible for myself totally. I have chosen however to focus my journey on becoming more responsible. No one in society can fully help me either as we all have failings. I myself have discovered that the only one who can truly help me is God. God knows me inside and out. Would it not make sense to ask and learn from my designer/engineer/creator personally? It makes perfect sense as I strive to “be all that I can be.”
