You Are The Only One Responsible.

You are responsible for your actions. Completely responsible.

There’s never a time when you’re not responsible for what you do, what you think, and the results you earn.

It doesn't matter what other people are doing to you. It doesn't matter what other people are getting away with. Your life, your priorities, and your perspective are all completely your responsibility.

It is easy to be distracted by what is going on around you. It's natural to think that because someone else is getting away with something wrong you'll be just as lucky.

The truth is that no one gets away with anything.

What you do earns you the results that you get. It may take you years or decades to experience the consequences of your actions. But there's never a time when you earn a different result then the actions you execute.

It's really that simple. What you do matters. What you do leads to clear and distinct results.

You're not responsible for the timing of those results. Often, you can't change when you get what's coming to you. You are, however, completely responsible for you.

Think about the frustrations you face in your life right now. You need more resources or you need more time. If it's not one of those, it's something else you think you need. You're frustrated because you feel like you could be more successful if life gave you your chance. More resources. Less of the bad stuff.

That's a dangerous way to allow yourself to think.

If you want something that you don’t have, go get it. Don’t wait for other people to realize your situation and help you. Fight for yourself.

It might require personal sacrifice. I might mean that you have less free time. Less money to spend on fun. But that's the cost of being awesome. That's the price of taking back ownership of your life. And destiny.

You will earn everything you deserve out of life. Now or later. You can't predict the time. You can't predict what other people will do to you.

You can however put your head down and grind.

You can put in the time. You can stay focused on your goal. You can make the choice to be positive instead of petty.

You got this. Just don't fall into the trap of believing you are the result of what is done to you. Don't let life trick you into feeling helpless and hopeless.

You're stronger than that. Rise up. Take back control of your future. Be willing to do whatever it takes in pursuit of achieving awesome.
