Take full responsibility for your life. Accept where you are and the responsibility that you’re going to take yourself where you want to go. We have two primary choices in life: We can either accept conditions as they exist, or we can take the responsibility to change them.
People want to exempt themselves from taking responsibility. All they want to do is talk about the problem. Every time you see them, they’ll tell you their story over and over and over and over again. No. No!
You should take responsibility for your life. ‘I got me here. I can get me out of this. And I’m getting out. I’m not going to be a volunteer victim.’
So part of beginning to get unstuck, you’ve got to decide that the behavior pattern that you have adopted doesn’t work for you. You’ve got to change your strategies and changing your strategy means reinventing your life. Recreating you and you have the power to do that.
You can decide that you’re going to change,
that you’re not going to be a wimp. You can decide that you’re going to stand up to life. You can decide that I’m going to live each day as if it were my last. You have the power to make that decision.
You can decide, “I’m going to work on myself and develop myself. I’m going to empower me. And all of these things that are happening to me right now, they’re just temporary inconveniences. They’re not stronger than I am. I’m in charge here”.
