“Responsibility finds a way. Irresponsibility makes excuses!”
You are totally responsible for your life. Blame and excuses are the hallmarks of an unsuccessful life.
People who take complete responsibility for their lives experience control of circumstances. They are able to make choices because they understand that they are responsible for their choices.
When you are not trying to escape from your life, you take control, face what’s going on and so the world and new options open up for you. When you don’t take responsibility for your life you give away your personal power.
With responsibility you start taking action not just when you feel like it. Improvement is not about short spurts once in a while. Consistent action is what really pays off and can help you achieve just about anything.
By being responsible you build your self-esteem to higher levels. And may discover that many smaller problems you experience regularly such as negative thinking, self-defeating behaviour and troubled relationships with yourself and others start to correct themselves as your self-esteem improves. You gain an inner stability and can create your own positive feelings within without the help of validation from other people.
“To decide, to be at the level of choice, is to take responsibility for your life and to be in control of your life.”
