Who do you blame for the conditions in your life....

Home Builder with Long Island Cash Home Buyer

"The list of reasons for not doing very well is actually a very shortlist. It should contain only your name.

You can look around for someone to blame for the conditions in your life, or you can accept the fact of the conditions . . . and take the responsibility to live with the conditions. Or you can elect to change the conditions.

It still comes down to one person. That person is you . . . You and you alone are responsible for your success . . . . and the direction that your success journey is moving in.

Once you accept the fact that you and you alone are responsible for the conditions in your life . . . . Everything changes . . . . for the better.

By accepting responsibility for your life . . . . you are taking control of your success journey . . . . your future . . . . your failures . . . . and for the successes you achieve. By doing so you change the way you think . . . . and become the navigator of your success journey.

There’s only one person responsible for your success . . . .

That person is you!


"You are broke because you want to be" by Larry Winget is a great book and if you have no financial issues read it anyway and then give it to someone who does...

Great stuff! 👍Even though I was recently run over by a truck and a trailer while riding my bicycle ina bike line, I take total ownership of my success and failures. Learning to walk again and to recover wholly it’s up to me and no one else. That will be my success! 🙏

Absolutely. I have often heard people blaming their situation on others. Until they take responsibility for where their life is going, they're going to stay where they are.

Good morning Beth and Richard. If it is to be it is up to me! Many motivational speakers have taken that slogan as their own over the years, so it must be true. Enjoy your day.

There's a lot of inspiration in your post, and Oscar Wilde's quote. Something to always keep in mind. Thank you!

Can I suggest to the AR Gods to "add" a "like" button to responses? I would love to reply and like these comments but I'm unable. Of course, I'm kinda new around here again and maybe I missed something...

My email notifications are great, I just want to take more action when I see responses and be able to engage more. ;-)
