What you need to know about Cause and Effect

Chances are you’ve probably heard of cause and effect before. Most of us have an understanding of cause and effect yet sometimes identifying it within yourself is a little more challenging.

For instance, do you sometimes feel as though life is happening to you and no matter how hard you try someone or something just seems to get in your way and sabotage your efforts?

It can happen to us all at times.

One thing after another crops up preventing you from moving ahead and it seems the more you complain and talk about how much you don’t want it or don’t like it the more of it you get! Argh!!

So how do you move past it?

Knowing the difference between cause and effect and recognising it within yourself is the key to empowerment.

When you are feeling powerless and frustrated, when you find yourself blaming other people for what’s happening in your life and you seem to take offence at even the slightest thing, it’s a good sign that you are being at effect.

Being at effect is a popular side to be on in today’s society. We are often bombarded with negative accusing messages throughout the media. We have friends and colleagues telling us all about how they’ve been wronged, going into much detail to describe the injustices they are faced with everyday and how they are a victim of circumstance.

The truth is we are all at cause for what appears in our lives. A series of decisions you made and actions you took brought you to this exact moment in time and only another series of decisions you make and actions you take will move you to where you want to be.

When you are at cause you take personal responsibility for your situation.

You realise you have the power to change and you have influence in any given situation. You are results focused and you know more about the outcomes you want than you do the challenges you face.

Whatever it is you want, you will either have results or you will have reasons and the good news is the choice is always yours. This doesn’t mean you have to do everything on your own, it means you become resourceful. Do what you can do, seek help where you need it and keep your focus on your outcomes and what it is that you want.

Shallow men believe in luck, believe in circumstances. Strong me believe in cause and effect- Ralph Waldo Emerson
