You are who you are based on the decisions you have made throughout your life. You may blame other people or have all the excuses possible to justify the way you are or how you act. Those excuses however don’t define you, and only satisfy the one who gives them. If you really want to grow, you need to take responsibility over your actions and decisions. Once you decide to take that responsibility and be aware of how you act, another scenario will begin to emerge.
You will notice that you are capable of guiding your life towards where you desire. You will be truly free to choose your destiny because the circumstances and behavior of others around you won’t have an impact on you. Look at the word responsibility (“response – ability”) which means the ability to choose your response. Successful people recognize this principle in order to grow.
Focus your vision on the things you are able to control. Pay attention on the way you react and choose the correct reactions which need to be aligned with your goals.
