“Success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility… in the final analysis, the one quality that all successful people have… is the ability to take on responsibility.” – Michael Korda
Becoming successful means not only taking on responsibilty but taking responsibility for ourselves. Going back to reckon with the past does not mean blaming others for our poor lot in life. It means going back to understand what happened to us and moving on.
It means looking back and figuring out where the road went wrong but not shirking the responsibility of making the road right.
We are all responsible for what happens to us as adults no matter how bad the past has been. It is not only possible to achieve success despite an unhappy and often terrible childhood, but the resilience one gains from surviving a bad childhood can be channeled and SHOULD be channeled into achieving remarkable success.
Thought for Today: Today I will take personal responsibility for my life.
