Why Taking Responsibility is So Important for Becoming Successful

If you want to take control of your life and direct it toward building a business, investing and becoming rich.

First you must take responsibility for everything in your life.

Blaming others about why you can’t be successful takes the power and control out of your hands, and makes reaching success impossible.

Even if you did have a messed up childhood or other problems growing up or even in adulthood, you need to let them go now.

There is an expiry date on blaming your parents for steering you in the wrong direction; the moment you are old enough to take the wheel, responsibility lies with you.

You need to accept responsibility. I really like what billionaire Oprah Winfrey says about not blaming other people and accepting responsibility:

You are responsible for your life. You can’t keep blaming somebody else for your dysfunction. Life is really about moving on.

Oprah Winfrey

You need to take responsibility for everything in your life right now, forgive others and accept the past for what it is.

Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different, it’s accepting the past for what it was, and using this moment and this time to help yourself move forward.

Oprah Winfrey

Stop feeling sorry for yourself — sorry but no one really cares. Do you want to be rich and successful? Respected? Then quit sulking and start building your business.

The difference between successful people and others is how long they spend time feeling sorry for themselves.

Barbara Corcoran

Starbux founder Howard Skultz think that success is less about luck and more as he puts it here:

I believe life is a series of near misses. A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It’s seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It’s seeing what other people don’t see And pursuing that vision.

Howard Schultz
