Taking responsibility

The reason why people’s lives do not work is that they fail to take full responsibility for their actions.

But what about the economy or the environment or disabilities or mental illnesses?

It is true there are many things we cannot control.

Yet, the sooner we can accept that we are the cause of our suffering, the sooner we can find the peace and joy that comes from being the creators of our own universe, the writers of our own story.

To clarify, I am not suggesting that someone born with a disability is somehow the cause of the challenges they face. I am, however, suggesting that despite the constraints that someone faces, you have more power than you think you do to change the circumstances of the situation you are in.

It is your choice in how you experience your life.
