As a business owner for the past eleven years I have come across many different kinds of situations and generally speaking it is the people issues that tend to be the ones that cause me to pause most. The situations I have most issue with are when people abdicate their responsibility for their own actions.
Some time ago I wrote a blog entry about personal responsibility and I’m guessing something had got me going that day! I was pretty forthright in my opinions about those people who will blame all around them for anything that goes wrong.
Another blog entry I wrote was inspired by one of Kit Grant’s newsletters and again focused on the FACT … that the ONLY barrier to success is yourself. The focus of his newsletter was that Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life and if you approach it the right way, starting now, then you can have success!
It is a waste to see people who get totally focused on perceived “wrongs” or reasons why things are not working. The very clear reality for anyone who has “seen the light” is that any of us are capable of “more” if we just adopt the right attitude.
Kit Grant also has a little handout that he gives in his presentations … it is called the 10 Steps to Success and if you REALLY study each item and can make that “light” come on, then you have an ability to really change your life.
Too many people are unhappy in their lives. The quick fix to that kind of dissatisfaction is to take charge of your life and make things happen … NOT sit waiting for someone to tell you the answer.
