Taking responsibility makes it possible for you to
experience the total pleasure of the abundance you achieve.  To fully be responsible you must take
responsibility for the good and the seemingly bad in your life, for your
positive habits as well as your negative habits. 

Then you take steps to change
what doesn’t contribute to your success. 
When you take responsibility you experience the accomplishment of your
goals at a much higher level than if you only take credit for the good that
comes into your life and blame someone else for the rest.

Responsibility is about your
personal integrity and the boundaries you have set in your life.  Super successful people are very clear on
what they stand for in their lives, as well as what is unacceptable.  Decision-making becomes much easier in your
business and personal life when you have this foundation.  
Taking responsibility for what
you want your life to look like takes the option of blaming someone else out of
the equation.  A great benefit is that it
serves to strengthen your resolve and speeds you toward your goals.  It does this by cutting off all the excess
baggage that you’ve labeled as other people. 
Now it’s all up to you and you make the choices.  Taking responsibility streamlines your

Create a Personal Manifesto

A manifesto is a series of
statements clarifying what you stand for in your life as well as what you won’t
stand for.  Having a personal manifesto
helps keep you focused on who you are and the purpose of your life.  I created mine as a certificate with a personalized
manifesto logo and it’s up on the wall in front of my desk
In life you are either a doer or
a blamer.  Blamers make excuses while
doers put their money where their mouth is. 
Which have you been?  The reason I
say have been, is because you can make a decision at any given moment to take
responsibility and change the way you’ve been living your life.  Are you achieving what you want or are you
blaming someone else for not having achieved your goals?  
The reality is, it’s always been
your choice.  Blame allows you to play
small, and as Marianne Williamson, author of “A Return to Love” says, your
playing small doesn’t serve you or the world. 
Take responsibility for being huge! 
Be the biggest you that you can be and watch the world respond with
super success.
Be able to laugh at yourself.
Being responsible isn’t the same as taking things seriously or being
stuffy.  It’s much easier to get over
something that doesn’t go well when you can laugh at yourself.  Stop taking your life so personally.  Most things that happen are not personal,
they just are.  Super successful people
know what other people say or do is always about who that person, not about
