Paying Attention

“Nothing bad can happen while you’re paying close attention” DJK

Accidents happen more frequently to some than others. It’s a harsh thing to say that some people are bringing it on themselves. They are often in denial that they are the ones causing the problems. They are quick to blame others or their circumstances rather than look at their own complicity.

Some people feel compelled to take action at any cost even though they might be taking the wrong actions and causing more damage than inaction would have accomplished; of course, the opposite could also be true. So how can we know for sure if we’re playing the victim or taking the right path towards responsibility?

Well, there are a few litmus tests you can take to ensure you are behaving in a more self-aware state. We are meant to learn from our mistakes and grow in wisdom and maturity as we move forward in life. If you feel like you’re trapped dealing with the same issues or challenges over and over again, meaning more than three times, then I think y0u are holding yourself back from moving to the next level of life and responsibility.

When you take 100% responsibility for where you are in life you are not playing the victim. If you are not where you want to be yet then you can know for sure the game is not up. If you feel stuck in a rut then you most certainly are, and if you’re feeling unsatisfied and like you’re in a bad place then the chances are high you might be ready to make some positive changes.

I’ve often mentioned about the importance of paying attention. It’s not like you have to be vigil and pay 100% attention ALL THE TIME.  All you need to do is notice when you have drifted. There’s a form of awareness when you can subtly “Pay attention to those times when you’re not paying attention”. Once you can learn to ease your thoughts back into focus then you’ll be able to get back to work on the most important things in front of you…
