I remember when I was younger I thought my circumstances were black and white.
Not possible to change until I heard Steve Job's say "When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again." As well as what it means to take responsibility for your life. Will Smith says "Fault and responsibility do not go together, it sucks. When something is somebody’s fault, we want them to suffer, we want them punished, we want them to pay, we want it to be their responsibility to fix it, but that’s not how it works.” “As long as we are pointing the finger … we are jammed and trapped into victim mode. When you are in victim mode you are stuck in suffering.” “Road to power is in taking responsibility. Your heart. Your life. Your happiness.” Another great quote from Marcus Aurelius: "You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength." Change your nature of perception and just remember that excuses are seducers, fears are liers and doubts are thieves. Share this with a friend
