You can take charge of every event in your life and determine how to make it better.
You can take charge of your mood, your outlook on life. You can take charge of your health, your habits, your ambition. Within every conflict and aspect of your life there is an opportunity to own it, fix it, and become better from it.
Where you are in life is where you deserve to be. That can make you sad, or it can inspire you, because you know that you and only you have the power to climb your way out of whatever rut it is you’re in, even if that rut is 20 years of failure.
It’s only when you accept that everything you are or ever will be is up to you, that succeeding will become part of your life. Taking responsibility for our actions equals success; it makes us feel good about ourselves; it frees us of anger, fear, resentment and doubt.
Once you accept total responsibility for everything that happens to you in life, you will discover that it enables you to find solutions to life’s difficulties far more quickly.
If you want to create the life of your dreams, then you are going to have to take 100% responsibility for your life. That means giving up all your victim stories and all your blaming of outside circumstances.
You have to give them all up forever.
The past is the past. All that matters now is that from this point forward you choose - that’s right, it’s a choice - to act as if you are 100% responsible for everything that does or doesn’t happen to you. That's it!
