There’s a tendency to parlay our decision power over to others. It’s simple really. Make decisions for yourself. When you make decisions for yourself you are writing your story and creating a timeline that is you driven.
When you fail, it’s on you. To succeed, it’s up to you.
Maybe it’s easy to put the burden on someone else because the blame can rest there too. That’s weak. You’re strong. Do things that are aligned with who you are.
A friend told me this idea is akin to the Buddhist principle of unattachment. Maybe. I think that theory is solid, has depth and can impact your life widely.
I think approach to the world & your life can create impacts too.
