Embrace responsibility

When it seems you’re always disappointed with everyone else, look in the mirror. The person you’re really disappointed with, is you.

When you’re frustrated with everything that happens, stop and look within. It’s not the external things that frustrate you, it’s you.

That’s a difficult truth to accept. It is also a powerful truth to know.

Because you have great influence and control over yourself. And by exercising that control, you can make things a whole lot better.

It’s pretty much impossible to change the whole world to meet your needs, or even a single other person for that matter. Yet you can absolutely improve yourself, and that can change the trajectory of your whole life.

If it’s something you care about, it’s something you’re responsible for. Embrace that responsibility, act on it, and the whole world becomes a better place.
