My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities.
~Albert Einstein


I am RESPONSIBLE for where I AM right now based on all the choices that I have made... and if I do not like where I am... I have the Responsibility and THE POWER to make new CHOICES which will create Change~Deby

As long as your are trying to do what you need, just the effort alone can open previously locked doors.

:-) This really is a wonderful thread!!! I think I will bookmark it just to get a recharge for motivation.

Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success.
Planless gaol=a wish
Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss.
Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction.
Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions.

'"calm seas never produced a great sailor." It is only by learning to navigate the storms and rough waters of life that we may grow stronger.' Man I so love that.

The most successful people in the world make thousands more mistakes and FAIL more often than any screwed up lazy bum ever could. How can this be you ask?: Because successful people keep trying and never quit, failure is only a temporary step in the learning process.

We must live our lives for ourselves, and lead by example. People will talk and talk is cheap, The proof is in the pudding. When success talks, the critical people finally shut up and listen.

We finally have to realize that we can only live our life for ourselves. We can be the good example, but it is not ours to coerce or berate others for their choices. That is part of their learning experience. We have to learn to be steadfast even in the face of criticism and opposition. There was a quote on SparkPeople a week or so ago, that "calm seas never produced an great sailor." It is only by learning to navigate the storms and rough seas of life that we grow stronger. Don't give up, but pursue your goals and let others learn from your determination.

I like this thread, and I firmly believe in taking responsponsibility. But what do you do when there is someone in your life who is consistently challenging everything you try to do such that you end up in terminal limbo?

I am morbidly obese. I exercise for an hour every day, eat low carbohydrate because I am a Carbohydrate Addict and I have been diagnosed as a diabetic. I got fat and became a diabetic through my own choices and I will overcome these through learning from my mistakes and making better choices. I have lost 35 pounds and kept it off for two years and this year, I am taking the steps to bring my weight to a healthy and vital level for me. I will also not be a diabetic for long. I am following Mike Adams 25 Day Program for Halting diabetes. I created the problem and by accepting this, I know the way to eliminate the problem. It is a good lesson for me in the year of my 8th Saturn return. The stars guide us, they don't condemn us!

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage the change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

There very well may be things beyond our scope of controls. We may not be able to effect the sun, the moon or the stars, but by taking responsibility for our reactions and emotions, actions n behaviors, and choosing our future's plan is to fully live our life- regarding everything of ourselves within our world...it is that in what enables us to control its effect on us...and in a mannor of speaking, to control it or effect a change upon the unchangable.
The sun will always rise and set, but how we percieve it, what we do concerning it, our actions and reactions...dictate its importance, if any, this event will have upon us. We may choose to exist inside just one building and never even see the actual sun at all while still being social and active. Its the action of doing, right or wrong, that empowers us to overcome anything.
Playing the victum is giving away our power, it is to become powerless and re-active rather than pro-active, to be beaten and remain inside failure. One cant change the fact that in human civilizations there will be crime, but there are things to do to prevent it, to continue on despite it, or to attain justice in the face of it, personally resist it and lead by example. Giving in or giving up is UNHEALTHY and the only thing whatever 'evils' rely on.

Taking personal responsibility for one's own self, honestly, and letting go of the rest freeing ourselves from obsession, really and truly IS 'The Secret of Success', for it is the foundation and frame work in choosing effective and efficient action towards all and any of our goals.

By accepting responsibility of everything going on in our lives, we empower ourselves to change it. If we are victims of powers outside of our control, then we can't Make Our Life Happen on Purpose. The Secret of Success is accepting full responsibility and taking ACTION to change everything that we don't like into qualities that we do. We can all do this!
