Are You At Cause for Your Business (and Life)?
You’re probably thinking, what the heck are you talking about? Just hear me out. Are you taking full responsibility for everything that is happening in your life, business included? If you have to pause to think, chances are you are living in effect.
When you live in effect, you look for reasons. In other words, there is always an excuse behind why you aren’t doing what you want to do. Someone or something gets in the way, and you are quick to point your finger. This mentality doesn’t get us very far because the blame game keeps us from achieving what we are capable of by looking to external factors.
Cause, on the other hand, focuses on results. You want to take action and will do what it takes to figure out a way to get out of any situation. You take control of your life, and do not get caught up what’s happening around you. Your inclination is to look inwards and to assess how you have played a role in what’s taking shape. It is when we look internally that we find the real reasons, lessons, and answers we’re looking for to help us succeed.
The good thing is that it’s never too late to be at cause. You can make this choice at any point. In fact, empowerment is the process of moving from effect to cause and operating from a positive success mindset.
