We can go many years in a world in which we believe everyone else is not so smart, don’t know what they’re doing and have no clue.

Or we can choose to ask ourselves, ‘What is my responsibility in this situation?’ This may be the stronger choice.

When we’re able to take 100% responsibility for our lives is when we can begin to live a functional life. Why? Because we no longer rely on excuses, circumstances or other people’s lack of consistency. It comes down to us, our behaviors and actions.

This can be extremely frightening to some and incredibly powerful for others. Why? We’re on the hook. Period.

In a time where it’s hard to find those who take full responsibility for their actions. We can. And boy what a difference it can make.
