154: Being Your Own Steward

Aug 15, 2023

Often, to varying extents, people go through life as if someone else is in charge. It’s common for people to believe that they themselves don’t have the ultimate power to make decisions. Maybe they don’t think they have permission to choose, they shouldn’t want what they want, or they need to consider others before deciding. If this sounds familiar, it’s time to start being your own steward.

When you're young and begin trying to understand the world, you're under the care of others. In contemporary mainstream society, at least in America, there isn't widespread understanding of when humans come of age and stop being guided by others. Perhaps nobody has ever told you that you can be your own steward in this world. So, what do you do when you realize you've been relinquishing control of your life for no good reason? Listen in to find out.

Are you assuming responsibility for what you're creating in your life and taking ownership of the decisions you've made? What does it even mean to do these things? Dr. Marie Murphy is breaking it all down this week, showing you why it's up to you how you live your life and how to consciously start being your own steward, even in areas of your life where there seem to be non-negotiable constraints.
