Founder and Executive Director of Medicine Horse Ranch, Alyssa Aubrey offers thoughts about how to relieve the growing stress, anxiety, anger and violence that permeates our world today through self-leadership.
TOMALES, CA – July 08, 2018 – Alyssa Aubrey, Founder of Medicine Horse Ranch and co-author of the best-selling book, The Road To Success, recently posted a new article on her website entitled, “Toward More Effective Living, Self-Responsibility And Self-Leadership,” in which Ms. Aubrey turns her attention toward humans instead of horses.
According to Aubrey, “We are living in a time of escalating stress, anxiety, anger and violence.” For proof Aubrey suggests, “Simply turn on the TV, the computer or your smartphone to witness the negative thoughts that are flying around, nonstop, in the atmosphere in which we live.”
“As far as I can tell,” says Aubrey, “there seems to be a current of thought in our culture that says, “I deserve ______________.” Fill in the blank with whatever you feel is lacking in your life: a great life, happiness, that promotion, fame, love, money, your attention, ad infinitum.” Aubrey continues adding, “The framing of the demand with “I deserve” points to the underlying notion that someone else is meant to provide those things. Some people think it is the government’s responsibility to provide us with a good life. Others think God, or their parents are meant to provide for their every desire, wish and whim. Others think it is the job of their lover or spouse.”
Aubrey writes, “The truth is each and every one of us is responsible for the quality and content of our lives.” She further elaborates, “We are responsible for our level of achievements, the quality of our relationships, our income, debt, fitness, beliefs, feelings, thoughts and behavior. So many of us humans are easily duped and conditioned on a daily basis into believing that outside forces are to blame for the things that don’t go well in our lives and for being deprived of the things we want and don’t have.” Aubrey states, “Continuing to blame others keeps us in a constant state of being stuck, feeling upset and acting out of a sense of victimhood instead of from integrity.”
