Taking Responsibility

If you desire greatness, then responsibility is the price you have to pay.

Read about the great man and woman of past and you will notice one common trait in them. They took responsibility for their actions. Alexander the Great, the greatest conqueror ever lived, took responsibility for his troops and led them to conquer the known world. Napoleon Bonaparte, Winston Churchill, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King all took responsibility for their actions. They were great.

If you so desire greatness, then take responsibility for all your actions.

Take responsibility for the way you dress, the food you eat, the company you keep, the job you do, the time you sleep. Take responsibility for all that you say.
Take responsibility of your strength. Accentuate it. Focus on it but don't gloat over it.

Take responsibility for your weakness. Work on improving it. Never blame others. Don't play the victim.

When you take responsibility, you will learn to live. Your confidence will be boosted and taking action will come naturally.

Epictetus once said, "Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens."

If you desire greatness, take responsibility.
