The following is a quick read probably less than 30 seconds in length, but it is one of those “teachable, take-away moments that leads to “Having A Great Day”.
“Never forget that your success starts and ends with you. You want it. You define it. You go after it. You achieve it, or you don’t. Only you are personally responsible for how your life turns out. Many other people will try to take responsibility for you, like your parents, your spouse, your friends or your co-workers, but in the final analysis, they can only influence how your life progresses, they cannot control it. Only you can.”
“Once you fully realize this most important ingredient of success, your life will never be the same. You will stop blaming others for your failures and disappointments and start working on changing yourself to be the kind of person you want to be. As long as you can blame some one else for why things aren’t the way you want them to be, you can comfortably avoid change. After all, ‘it’s their fault’. However, when you have no one to blame but yourself, you are more likely to seek change. Not many people feel comfortable saying, ‘it’s my fault.’ ”
