“A man, as a general rule, owes very little to what he is born with – a man is what he makes of himself.” (Alexander Graham Bell)
One of the fundamental truths you must embrace in your quest for financial freedom is that you determine your financial status. Yes, you’re absolutely responsible for where you’re today financially.
One of the greatest attributes you can have is an intense sense of responsibility. It is empowering, for one thing, and your effectiveness will increase tremendously when you own the good and the bad of all you do.
Personal responsibility is the price you must pay for financial greatness. Taking 100% responsibility for your financial destiny is the gateway to a world of financial dignity and success.
In every study of rich and wealthy people, the acceptance of personal responsibility seems to be the starting point. Before that, nothing happens. After you accept complete responsibility, your whole life begins to change.
Everything that makes life colourful and great is a product of personal responsibility. No one can breathe for you and no one can eat on your behalf. These are products of personal responsibility. In the same manner, your financial destiny is your personal responsibility.
To blame is to be lame financially
We have been conditioned from childhood to blame things outside of ourselves for the parts of our lives we don’t like. We blame parents, government, bosses, spouse – anything and anyone we can put the blame on but never ourselves. We avoid looking at where the real problem is- ourselves.
The truth is almost everybody has a reason not to succeed in life, yet many have succeeded and many are still succeeding.
So, no excuse is good enough for you to fail!
“99% of all failures come from people who have a habit of making excuses”-George Washington Carver (the chemist who discover over 325 uses for the peanut)
You’re indeed the architect of your financial destiny. Stop passing blames and making excuses. You’re responsible for your present financial circumstance. It is you who took the actions, thought the thoughts, created the feelings, and made the choices that got you to where you’re now financially.
The bottom line is that you are the one creating your financial destiny the way it is by your thoughts and actions.
Change is possible
The good news is that you have control over your current thoughts and feelings. You’re in charge of what goes on in your mind, what you say or do.
If you want a different financial result and status, and I know you do, then you have to do things differently. You will need to act in ways that will enhance the realization of your dreams.
That begins with you taking 100% responsibility for all the financial happenings in your life. You must accept complete responsibility for your life, and for everything that happens to you, with no blaming and no excuses.
If you have ever at any point in your life blamed anyone or anything for your financial circumstance, then you’re not taking responsibility. Taking 100% responsibility means acknowledging that you create everything that happens to you financially. It is only by acknowledging that you have created everything up until now that you can take charge of creating the financial future you desire.
Failure is never final
If you acknowledge that you have created your current financial conditions, then you can uncreate them and recreate them. When you accept complete responsibility for your life, you take the giant step from childhood to adulthood.
A wise man once called failure “the opportunity to begin again—more intelligently.”
“The primary reason for failure is that people do not develop new plans to replace those plans that didn’t work.”- Napoleon Hill
You need to change your perspective about life and the world of money. Develop new plans, new thought pattern and make new choices.
The wisdom of God says “…..work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Phil 2:12
“…for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous….” Jos 1:8
Your salvation from the grip of poverty and financial holocaust is essentially your personal responsibility.
If you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you will keep on getting what you’ve always got.
This is your take off point into a world of wealth and riches……taking 100% personal responsibility for your financial situation, whether it’s positive or negative.
Taking responsibility is empowering, but blaming external or outside forces is disempowering. Assuming responsibility puts you in control of your financial destiny. It’s a new day for you!
The question is “Are you going to take 100% responsibility for your financial future?
Did I hear you saying, “Yes, I am”?
If that is your choice……Congratulations, you’ve just made the decision that will forever change your financial story positively.
