“Remember, the moment you accept total responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you claim the power to change anything in your life.”
Hal Elrod, the author of the book – ‘The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life’, gives us a simple yet profound example of human nature about accepting responsibility for the things happening around us and the way most of us react to it (either you take the ownership OR you fail to accept the responsibility).
When you take ownership of your own behavior and the forthcoming consequences, you develop self-respect or even have the respect of others. This allows you to understand your mistakes and the situations you have been through and then come up with solutions to avoid them in future. Doing so – as Hal says – “you gain a power to change anything in your life”.
When you fail to accept responsibility for things or point fingers to others, it may work to your advantage in the short term, but in a long-term, it will suppress your growth as a person. As an anonymous has already said, “When you blame others, you give up your power to change.”
According to us ‘The Miracle Morning‘ is a must-read book. Amazon.com link to the book is below.
