Responsibility

Those things for which you are responsible are the things that will propel your life forward.

When you take responsibility for your work, that work will bring success. Take responsibility for your character, and you’ll be looked upon as a leader. Take responsibility for your finances, and you will become wealthy.

Take responsibility for your thoughts, and they will lead you to greatness. Be responsible for your actions, and dreams become reality.

Responsibility is yours the moment you decide to embrace it. Is it fair that you should be responsible when others avoid responsibility? No, it is not always fair, nor is it always easy. Yet responsibility is essential.

How much responsibility can you handle? That is precisely how successful you will be.

— Ralph Marston
