Taking Responsibility

Life is all about choices you make. We must accept responsibility for each and every action we take. But before that, one must understand what our choice is. There is a subtle difference between choosing any random way and following the path you have chosen. There are several elements in life that is beyond our control but these entire events sum up our life. Things keep happening and life is far from fair. Not everyone has same share of luck and achievements but at least we can begin on a fresh note if we just start making right choices.

External factors like family, friends, economy, money etc decide our conditions to a great extent. There is this maxim, ‘The best thing one can do when it is raining is to let it rain.’ Now, isn’t that wonderful? The best way to handle things beyond your control is to accept them. One thing you shouldn’t do at all is to term yourself as victim and feel awful about your existence. That’s a pretty lame approach to tackle things.

The point is, we cannot choose what happens to us but we can always decide how best to respond what happens to us. Now that you have accepted the things happing to you, move on to gulp and swallow part. Its time you start changing the things. One is either part of the problem or part of the solution. It’s high time you decide which part you want to choose!
