I think there are a lot of people who would argue with me on that. They think success is something that happens to them, if they are lucky.

Some people consider themselves really unlucky and believe that success will never come to them. People who think of themselves as not being successful usually have plenty of reasons why. Perhaps it’s because …………

* I don’t live in the right location
* It’s a consequence of the way my parents brought me up
* I haven’t received the recognition I deserve
* the opportunities have just not been there for me
* ___________ won’t cooperate with me
* (you fill in the blank)

Just think for a moment – are these really reasons, or are they excuses? Do you know of ANYBODY who has succeeded despite “living in the wrong location”? Anybody who has succeeded despite the way their parents raised them? Anybody who has gone on to succeed despite not having gained recognition for their efforts? So are these things reasons why we can’t be successful, or obstacles to be overcome on the way to success?

What is success anyway? Is it having a certain level of income, having a particular type of car, living in a fantastic house? A lot of people have those things but are not happy.

While success is usually tied to an achievement or a material acquisition, success is not the actual thing, but it is really the FEELING that those things represent. For example, you train hard, you win a race. You put the trophy on the shelf. Every time you look at it, you feel great. Is it the trophy itself that makes you feel great? No, it is the achievement it represents. You look at the trophy, remember what it took to win it and FEEL a success energy.

So if success is a feeling, then success is also a CHOICE. You can choose how you feel. (If you are not convinced of that it is another whole topic that I’m not going into right now.) If success is a feeling you can teach yourself to feel successful every minute of every day. Focus on your successes, build the success energy in your life. Remember that you get more of what you focus on, so more success will come your way.

CHOOSE SUCCESS, don’t wait for it to magically happen to you.

Create your own happiness

I’ve been thinking about personal responsibility lately. There are two opposite kinds of people: Those who take responsibility for themselves, and those who don’t.


Are subject to anger, hostility, fear, resentment, doubt-all sorts of negative emotions. They are always making excuses and blaming people and things for what’s going on in their life. Do you ever say to yourself or others any of the following?

*  Life is so unfair.
*  I’m unlucky.
*  It’s not my fault that I’m the way I am.
*  My parents (spouse, friends, coworkers, boss, health, the weather, or the political situation) make me depressed (angry or frustrated).
*  I feel overwhelmed and helpless.
*  I can’t succeed because of the corrupt government, blood-sucking corporations, greedy employers, and back-stabbing coworkers.
*  I’m unsuccessful because of the prejudice (age discrimination, sexism, jealousy, hatred, stupidity) of others.

Terms used to describe those who have not accepted personal responsibility include martyrs, self-pitying, depressed, losers, quitters, chronically angry, dependent personalities, complainers, addictive personalities, blamers, stubborn, persons in denial, troubled people, stuck, fearful, pessimists, despondent, mentally unstable, obstinate, hostile, aggressive, irresponsible, weak, guilt-ridden, resistant to help, passive, irrational, insecure, neurotic, obsessed and lost.


Are fully integrated, fully functioning human beings. Responsibility goes hand in hand with success, achievement, motivation, happiness and self-actualization. T

here seems to be a direct relationship between responsibility and happiness on the one hand, and irresponsibility and unhappiness on the other hand.


The key to happiness is having a sense of control over what’s going on in your life. The more responsibility you take, the more in control you are. And the freer you are, especially in your own mind, to make decisions and to do the things you want to do.

If a change in your life is warranted, why not begin by recognizing that your present situation is not the result of your genes, parents, education, job, luck, timing, health, or environment. Rather, it is the choices you have made and the actions you have taken that have brought you where you are today.

If you want to be happy, decide upon the kind of life situation in which you would feel wonderful. Think of the very best times of your life, and think of what you were doing, where you were doing it, and the people you were with at the time. Then write out, in complete detail, a description of your ideal lifestyle. Now you have defined the effect that you desire. Next, look at your current life and ask yourself, “What are all the things in my life that are inconsistent with the lifestyle that would make me happy?” In other words, look at the causes of the effects that you don’t like. Then make a decision to begin alleviating or removing those causes, one by one, until what you have left is the kind of life you want to live.

Personal responsibility is the freedom to create our own lives.  It’s easy to shift the responsibility and blame others or events. But what good is that? All it does is keep us in a rut. We cannot make any real progress until we admit to ourselves, “Only I can hold myself back. Only I can help myself.

If it’s to be, it’s up to me.

Take responsibility for yourself, and create your own happiness.
