‘Manning’ Up



“Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.”
Sigmund Freud

Do you blame others for the way your life is right now? When we blame others for what we are going through, we deny responsibility – we surrender power over that part of our life.

In reality, the price of happiness is responsibility. As soon as we stop making everyone and everything else responsible for our happiness, the happier we will be.

Ultimately, our happiness depends on our self reliance – our unshakable willingness to take responsibility for our life from now on, regardless of why it is the way it is right now.

It is about taking control of your present circumstances, finding your true self by thinking for yourself, and making a firm choice to live life the way that suits you. It is about being the hero of your life, being willing to take 100% responsibility for your own life. Put yourself in the driving seat.

Remember, the choices you make today are ultimately our own responsibility. Choose wisely.

“The power behind taking responsibility for your actions lies in putting an end to negative thought patterns. You no longer dwell on what went wrong or focus on whom you are going to blame. You don’t waste time building roadblocks to your success. Instead, you are set free and can now focus on succeeding.”
Lorii Myers
