Accepting responsibility for your growth
"Don't wish it was easier, wish you were better." Jim Rohn
When life hits you hard, it's tempting to look around to see if there is someone or something to blame for the challenges you face. It's your parents fault, the economy is struggling, it all started with 9/11, or blame it on your teachers. Finding targets for blame is easy enough, but accepting responsibility for your actions, and for your response to real wrongs that have been done to you, is an inside job.
Better to concentrate on being ready, on being great and generous of spirit, than to look for reasons why you can't succeed and can't be happy.
It takes a lot of emotional strength to deal with your own issues rather than search for convenient places for blame, but in the end you will end up authentic and genuinely strong.
What circumstances in your life are you pushing onto others, when you could and should be accepting responsibility?
