If things turn out badly, you’ll probably be blamed, so take responsibility now and make events go the way you want.
When you don’t take responsibility, you give up control to others. Others never have your real interests at heart because they really don’t know you. And if they did, why should they do what you won’t do for yourself? Make your interests known to yourself and take action.
Take responsibility for everything that you have done and for everything you have avoided doing. It’s the first step toward being free.
The greatest gift you can give children is to let them take responsibility for themselves.
Whenever you take responsibility for other people, you limit their growth. They may be grateful initially, but the more responsibility you take, the more they will resent you.
Take responsibility for knowing how you feel, what you need, and what you want. Unless you do, yes and no are meaningless words.
Take responsibility for everything that has happened to you, that shaped you, whether you caused it or not.
You’re responsible for suffering.
You’re responsible for living happily ever after.
The responsibility that you accept ceases to be a burden.
You may not be responsible for what happened to you, but you are responsible for what you feel about it and how you reacted toward it.
I am responsible for everything in my life.
I am responsible for what I was.
I am responsible for what I will become.
