Bob Wilcher: Take Responsibility for Your Life

Don't hold yourself back by playing the role of victim

Do you know anyone who always places blame on someone else or something else? No matter what the situation seems to be, they are the victims.

Maybe it’s their weight or job or relationship. Maybe it’s their financial status or kids or energy level.

How often does someone like that ever change their life around? Do you know anyone?

The victim role is an easy trap to fall into, and we all have glimpses of it come out from time to time.

However, if you look at successful people, you’ll notice that their attitude is the reason they are successful. More often than not, they take responsibility for the situation they are in and change it if it needs to be changed.

If our situations always depend on someone else or something else to change, then we are all doomed. So this year I’d like to see you all take responsibility for your own lives.

If you are overweight, then do something about it. It’s not your job or your spouse or anyone else’s fault. Just decide that you’re going to do something about it and make it happen.

No matter what your situation is, just open your eyes to the possibility that you put yourself there. Own it and watch what happens. This is a major step to achieving your dreams.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
