Hey, hey gold getters, welcome back to another episode of the pursuit of hope. The day is finding you well. Listen, today is all about your extraordinary future and how the key, the major key, to opening up all those doors is you. Now, if we haven't met before and there's your first time watching us here, Hey, my name is Patrick Crow and I'm a life coach and founder of legacy life and creator of the life by design courses over at Patrick Kerwhencom now. Hey, if you're joining us live, comment in the chat. Let me know you're here, because, whether you're here live, are you watching on our companion but are listening to our companion podcast, I'm always just glad to have you here. Now, before we get in today's show, I do want to just offer a bit of...

...honesty through this process. So today is all about how we, when we take personal responsibility for the joy, for the happiness, for the outcomes our life is giving us. That taking of responsibility is the hallmark of maturity, is what separates adulthood from childhood and for the parents out there, you know exactly what I'm talking about. But it just to share something with you guys. As I look back on my life. As I look back on my story, there was many years of my life where I did not take responsibility. In fact, that a whole list of people and things and situations to blame. I blamed my parents, I blamed the economy, I blamed my job for not paying me enough, I blamed anything in everyone. They a turning point for me in this endeavor and I'll never forget this. I'm standing...

...in the middle. I'm in college and I spent all this money going to college, at all these personal loans. We could talk about personal loans at different time, but I'm sitting there in the middle of the psychology department and I'm watching people just pace me by, people who look like they know where they're going, they know what they're doing, they know what they're dirt their day, they've goals and they're moving somewhere forward, and I'm standing still while people are just lapping me. At one point one student who was my age paused and looked at me. Could tell I had this lost look in my eyes and she says to me, are you do you need something? Is there something? And I literally said to her, I I don't know what I need. How do I what do you do and she's like, well, I'm a teacher's assistant, and I was like wow, how do I do that? And it it be. It is a major part in my life that I realize that I had no idea what I was doing and that I if I really wanted to change things, I needed to change myself, that the income that I wanted, the life that I wanted, I realize,...

...and I come later came to see, did not far exceed my personal development and I began my journey there into the personal development space, growing myself, taking more responsibility so I can move my life in a new direction. Now, to help you illustrate just how powerful taking full responsibility of our own life was, I want to share something with you, guys. This actually comes from a scene from one of my favorite films, back to the future too, and it's just it's a scene to stuck with me. So you have this scene where you have doc Brown and Marty mcfly and there they were just wondering, how did we get to this place? How did you get to this place where everything so wrong and so off? And he gets on the chalkboard and frantically he draws in the chalkboard, draws the skewed line on the bottom. He says. What happened was is this event happened here, created this alternate timeline and shifted all of the experiences. So then I started...

...to wonder, so what if our life is just like this? We have our past and we have the life that we're living right now. In fact, the now is happening right now. I'm talking to you and you're here with me experiencing this, this moment together. By the way, make sure to say hi in the comments if you haven't done so already. And now we have this glorious future, this potential some the other end for us. And the question then becomes, what can we do now to alter this timeline, because right now, for some of us, this timeline feels like it maybe it's for you, it's feels like it's skewed a little bit. You feel off the path, we're not where you're supposed to be, or just wondering, is there more to it than this? Whether you're thinking about your career, thinking about your health, you're thinking about your relationships, just your life, it can sometimes feel like we've gone into some skewed reality. But the main thing that we can understand is that if we make decisions today,...

...like today, right now, on this call with me, if you're watching live, we can make a decision that will shape our forward destiny, a decision we can make only by taking personal responsibility, responsibility for how we feel, for how we think, for the habits that we've cultivated in ourselves to create for ourselves reality that we're currently experiencing now. I will say this in all humility. Life is tough and there's lots of stuff that can hold us down, weights on our shoulders, and the winters of life, they come. Some winters were thrust into and some we volunteerly step into a time of change, a time of growth, whatever season you're in right now, whatever time you're in, I just want to leave you with this simple idea. You are the key, you're the major key to your better future, and...

...there is a decision that you could make today, right now, that would create a brand new future for yourself. Now. Maybe that decision is saying yes to starting a new business. Maybe that decision is simply doing something for your relationship that maybe you haven't done in a while, writing a letter, a love letter, whatever may be. Making those investments, making those decisions, starting a gym membership, putting your clothes up under whatever, these little things create these new time lines for us that open all the doors. But it begins, my friends, with this understanding that it's us that we must decide. Not Going to wait for the government, we're not going to wait for the weather to be perfectly shiny, we're not going to wait for this. We are going to side that this, that we are the catalyst of change and we are going to push this in a brand new level.

But I do want to leave you with this simple thought. Today, Sunday, it's great week ahead. There's something in your mind right now. I know it. The thing you know that you could be doing, the thing you know you probably should be doing, the thing that fear might be holding you back from now. I spend many years of my life not in a place that I wanted to be. I wasn't driving the cars I wanted to drive. In fact, I was just hoping they'd get down the road right. There were times where I went to put gas in the car and I was like, I don't know, should I put in through thirty more sense? I don't want to get an other overdraft fee. My Life Look like that on repeat every day. I didn't have goals at in rows going, I wasn't pushing myself and I long list of all...

...the things that I was blaming everyone. And what I realize, and I'm encourage you to do, is if you if you have a list of things, reasons, and if your name isn't down that list of some of the major reasons why you're not where you want to be, that I'm going to say lovingly, your list is incomplete. Take a moment today, think about what you want, think about who you're becoming. Make a decision now, today to sign up for the thing, do the thing, put out the book, whatever you need to do, start moving your life in this brand new direction, because you're worth it, you deserve it and life is yours for the taking. All you need to do is take personal responsibility, make the decisions that shape your destiny and move your life in a whole new direction. So, Hey, thanks for tuning in for another this is a short episode. It's want to leave you there and just push some love and some passion India for this great life that you deserve. My name is Patrick Kerwhen...

...this at the pursuit and until we meet again, made the fire within lead the happiest heights and the road you travel belined with lights. Will see you next time.
