"Today, I want you to understand that you and you alone can make your life better; no one else can. You have total responsibility for what you do. Not only do you have the responsibility to make it better, you have the ability and the power to make it better.
No matter what your current situation is, you have a choice. No matter how bad things are, you have a choice. No matter what you think you can or cannot do, you have a choice.
Once you become open to the idea that you are responsible for your life and that you have choices, you will find that you are no longer stuck just because life is hard. You will be motivated to move on and make things work."
Bold winners understand the power of choice and the place of responsibility in their peculiar situations. The first step is to stop blaming other people or situations for the things you are facing in your life, but instead accept the indispensable responsibility of steering your life to the direction you want.
You must understand that at every point in your life, you have a choice to continue experiencing what you're experiencing or change that reality through action, no matter how impossible it may look to you.
If you've not acknowledged your power of choice, your life will still be swayed by various external factors and you won't feel responsible over what's happening in your life. It will be easy to blame God, your government, your country, your community, your family, your parents, your lover and etcetera. You will shift the responsibility to anything else but yourself.
This is a loser's mentality. You've lost already when you think that you have no choices and you're not responsible to make your life better. Indeed, you're not responsible for where you were born, the family you know or even your gender. But you are very responsible for what you make out of your life despite these things you didn't choose.
If you only take care to look at the world around you, you will see that living a happy and very successful is not even determined by those factors we are not responsible for. People from troubled or poor homes have ended up becoming great. People that were abused as children and faced untold hardship are still making it in life just as some people who were born in seemingly better situations are making it.
Failure as well isn't determined by background, upbringing, race or gender. People born in very nice settings have experienced failure as well as those born in seemingly less better ones. Therefore, success and failure are not dependent on those things beyond our control rather they are dependent on the choices we make and how responsible we are.
If you take a look at the lives of great men and women, you will notice that they all understand the power of their choices and they do not run away from responsibility, not just over their personal lives, but in other spheres of life.
Stop throwing blames on things outside you to justify your current position and experiences in life. As a bold winner, you should throw all blames about your life to yourself. You always have a choice. Make your choices without fear. Be the captain of your ship and steer it into the right course by making the right choices and accepting your responsibility.
Know your choices, accept responsibility over your life and keep winning.
