It's important to take responsibility for your life. That means taking responsibility for your actions, your thoughts, and the words that come out of
your mouth. That's the first step if you want to get anywhere in this life. If you want to ditch the sorry life you're living now and grow, as a
person, you need man up and realize that you are where you are, not because of someone else, but solely because of you. You need to see that you
choose, this life situation you are in, every little detail, your friends, your apartment, your socks, your sorry life.
All too often I see people blaming either (a) someone else or (b) something else. How about this example. You are late to work because you get a flat
tire. You will tell your boss "I'm sorry I'm late, I got a flat tire." See, you just did it. You just put the blame on your car, on your flat
tire. You are making excuses. You are lying to yourself. You aren't taking responsibility. Don't even put in the, "I got a flat tire." You're
f****** late. "I'm late." End your sentence right there. The tire part is extra. See what I mean?
Even if you did get a flat tire, it's your fault. You should have checked your air. Maybe your tires were bad. Maybe you should have had them
replaced. Maybe your tires were brand f***** new and guess what, it's still your fault, only you are to blame.
I'll use another example. Let's say you take that car, the one that had a flat tire, you take it in somewhere to get serviced. You tell them not
only to fix the flat tire, but maybe rotate the tires, balance them, and maybe change the oil. You pay for their services, take your car home and
realize they f**** you. They fixed the flat, but didn't balance, rotate, or even change your oil, but charged you for it. Now, you can either put the
blame on them or you can see the truth, realize it's your fault.
How's it your fault? Look, you bought that car. You picked that job. You drove your car to your job that morning. You ran over the nail that popped
your tire. You took your car to them. See what I'm getting at?
What am I exactly getting at? My point is, EVERYTHING that happens to you, every little minor or major thing that happens, even a pre-existing
condition you were born with, you choose. You choose this, you choose this moment, whatever this moment entails, you continually choose it.
Listen, notice how I didn't say "you chose it". I'm not using past tense here. I'm talking about right now. This very moment. Every little thing
that happens, however minor or major, it's your fault, only you are to blame. You choose everything. You choose each situation. You choose each
Let's say you were born with a pre-existing condition. Like Nick Vujicic, the guy born with no arms and no legs, this guy was born with no limbs,
none, zip, nada. He chooses that. He could put the blame on his parents, on whatever god he believes in, he could blame the universe or, quite simply,
he could blame himself, see that it's his fault, ( and I don't mean blame yourself in a condemning way) and take full responsibility for his
How does he choose that? How does he choose to have no limbs? It's simple and this applies to everyone. You choose to get your a** out of bed every
morning and by doing that simple little action, you choose everything that happens to you, every pre-existing condition you might have or one you
might acquire down the road.
Because you choose to get out of bed in the morning and choose to partake in eating and drinking, you choose life. Whether it's raining, snowing, or
sunshine out, you choose it. Whether you just got fired from your job or your wife had an affair, you choose it. No matter how bad or good life seems
right now, maybe you are about to be convicted from your apartment or maybe you just won the lottery, maybe you just placed last at your last
bodybuilding competition or maybe you won the whole d*** thing, I repeat, you choose it, you choose this.
One last thing, I'm going to take this one step further: You need not only take responsibility for your actions, your thoughts, and what you say BUT
EVERYTHING YOU DON'T DO, DON'T THINK, AND DON'T SAY.
A bit of a paradox?
