I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Take responsibility for your own actions

on July 19, 2015

Many of us tend to blame others when something goes wrong in our lives.  Children blame parents for not raising them properly.  Parents blame the schools for not educating their children properly.  Husbands blame their wives for not respecting them enough.  Wives blame their husbands for not loving them enough.  Employees blame employers for not treating them fairly.  Employers blame employees for not working hard enough.  We blame friends, neighbours, the government and everyone else instead of looking at ourselves and being responsible for our own actions.

Sometimes we cannot control what happens to us but unless we are a child, we do have the choice as to how we will respond.  We can choose to be a victim of circumstance and pass blame onto someone else, leaving us stuck in our problems.  Or we can choose to take responsibility for our own actions, take control of our emotions and respond in a positive way.

Nobody else can live our lives for us.   Nobody else can eat healthy foods for us.  Nobody else can exercise for us.  Nobody else can be happy for us.  When we get up in the morning, it is up to us to make good choices for the day so it will affect our lives in a positive way.  Passing blame onto others is a passive, negative way of living and it certainly won’t make us happy.

Stop playing the blame game and start taking responsibility for your own actions!
