Taking Ownership of Your Success


Episode 126

Taking Ownership of Your Success

Part of being human is having a desire for evolution and change. We are seekers of constant improvement. Sometimes change is hard to come by because there’s no clear path to go from where we are to what we want. This is where determination and resolve come in handy.


I think it’s safe to say that if you’re reading this, you want to take charge of making changes in your life. 


You’re ready to take an active role in creating what you want in your life experience. 


Great — taking ownership of your success journey will require a few things that when you apply consistently will make success a reality faster than you might think. 


  • You must have the potential for change. Nothing will happen without it. So, How do you know if you’ve got potential for change?
    • You feel unsatisfied with things in your life experience and have a nagging thought you’re meant for more.
    • You have a curious mind.
    • You have an ability and desire to learn.
  • You’re ready to take responsibility for the 4 things you can control:
    • Your thoughts — Your thoughts lead to your focus which leads to your outcomes. If your thoughts aren’t leading to successful outcomes, you can change them to something that better serves you. Check out our free resources linked in the show notes.
    • Your emotions — Emotions are communication from your unconscious mind. Learn from them, process them, and get into feel-good states.
    • Your language — The words you speak and the words in your mind matter. Use positive, toward language to speak to the things you want and how you want them (not about what you don’t want).
    • Your actions — Take consistent action that aligns with the success you want. The key is to do it consistently and with intention.
  • Be at cause. This is the essential NLP frame for empowerment.
    When you decide to take ownership of your outcomes, you become more aware of your state, environment, and the outcomes you’re currently getting. The empowerment frame teaches that you are the sum of your conscious and unconscious choices.

    So if you want to know how you’re doing, just look around what’s going on internally and externally. There’s no blame here — only the knowledge and awareness that you have a choice in the matter. And when you know better, you can do better.
    • Awareness leads to inspired action, which leads to more resources, more knowledge, and opportunities for creating lasting change.


Then you’ll be ready to create the change you seek by doing the following:

  • Focus on what you want with complete abandon. Don’t get frustrated if it’s not your life experience right now. Maintain focus on the desire for the sheer joy of wanting it.
  • Speak to what you want. Using positive, toward language creates momentum. Simply say it the way you want it.
  • Take action that aligns with your goals.
  • Be at cause by paying attention to your moment-to-moment experience.


This is simple, but it isn’t easy. My coaching programs help clients get to success more quickly. But can you do it on your own? Absolutely! I did. And you’ll find many free resources here to support you on your journey. Own your journey. You’ve got this.

Thanks for listening!
