If you feel like life is happening to you instead of for you, it might be that you are not taking personal responsibility. When we continually blame our external circumstances for how we feel internally, we become disempowered. So, how do you get back in the driver’s seat of our lives? By taking personal responsibility! Today’s guest, Lindsey Mango, is the poster child for personal responsibility, and in this episode, we hear about taking charge of your life. Of course, there are so many things that are out of your control, and personal responsibility is not about trying to control everything. Instead, it is about understanding how you respond to things, the stories you create in your head, and the role you play in shaping your life. Lindsey offers insights into the different things that have to be in place in order to take responsibility for things, the importance of wanting to be proven wrong, and what the payoff is when you no longer play the victim. We end off the conversation by asking Lindsey some listener questions. Tune in to hear it all!
