What do you think the Number 1 Cause of Success is??
Simple, it is… taking 100% responsibility!
Some call it persistence, determination, or passion; but all those are the result of taking 100% responsibility. If you don’t yet have the result you want, what are you going to do about that? Nothing? Then we both know the result you have right now is the result you’ll ALWAYS have. True?
Now, what if you instead took responsibility for your results. No blaming anyone or anything outside of you. Not the GFC, your friends, family, the weather, stress or any other excuse you could convince someone else of, regardless of how REASONABLE you can make your argument… because let’s face it, REASONS ARE NOT RESULTS!!
Did you know prior to the internet boom, the richest people in the world made their millions during the most dire economic times. How is that possible you ask? Easy, I’ve already told you… that’s right, 100% RESPONSIBILITY!
Imagine you owned a factory that employs half the local towns people and and without it they’d all starve. Do you think you might get series about finding out how to stop your company going under? Well it’s that serious attitude, that you are 100% responsible for 100% of the results in your life, that will make them happen and anything less than 100% will end in failure. One excuse, is all it takes to unravel even the most perfectly planned approach. “I didn’t think it mattered.” Anything less than 100% is simply not 100%.
Thomas Edison didn’t fail 10,000 times making the light bulb, he simply found 10,000 ways that didn’t work. By elimination and the 100% responsibility of one man, we now live in a futuristic world taking light for granted as it emanates from virtually every device we own.
Not ready to take 100% Responsibility for 100% of the Results in your life (Good and Bad), then keep living in the dark, it’s easier there, you don’t see what you’re missing. Well, until that moment of clarity as you lie silent on your death bed.
If you are ready? I’m deeply excited for you, because life happens on the OTHER side of your comfort zone! Now go get it!!
