Responsibility

The moment you stop blaming your misery on others, it disappears. The moment you take full and complete responsibility for your life, you jump to a whole new level of effectiveness and achievement.

Imagine going through each day with no frustrations, no anxiety, and no regrets. Imagine putting every bit of your energy, in every moment, into meaningful, productive, joyful and fulfilling pursuits.

Imagine being able to easily put your intentions into action. Imagine being able to maintain a clear sense of purpose and a rock-solid focus.

Choose to accept responsibility for everything that touches your life, and you’ll increasingly find yourself living in such a world. Your eyes will be opened to the beautiful, overwhelming abundance of positive possibilities.

Have your blaming and fighting and running and hiding and avoiding ever brought you anything of real value? Maybe it’s time to turn around and realize that responsibility is truly a gift rather than a burden.

Choose now to accept that gift of responsibility. And you will surely experience profound fulfillment.

— Ralph Marston
