If I blame and accuse others, I feel helpless to change the circumstances around me. I’ve given away my power and ability to take action. If I take responsibility for the condition or circumstances then I can begin to change what I believe and think and eventually how I behave.
Responsibility is not about blaming ourselves. Responsibility is the ability to respond. It is the freedom to take action. It is the power to change. When we take responsibility, we face our fears and take steps to move past them.
Affirm: I am willing to take responsibility for my actions.
