How to Achieve Anything Using the “One” Method

Take responsibility!

That’s it… just take responsibility for your actions. ALL of your actions.

Our minds have a tendency to always chose the option with the least resilience, or the least amount of pain. That’s why in situations where we are failing or struggling, we blame external circumstances. Because its far harder to take responsibility for your actions and act accordingly, than to blame others or your circumstances.

Realize that to whom or what you shift blame/responsibility on, is also whom or what you are dependent  on. The two go hand in hand.

This year i had a terrible statistics lecturer. Instead of playing ” poor me” and ultimately failing and blaming it on her. I took the responsibility for passing that module and spent extra time reading up on every topic, extra time practicing each equation and so on,to make up for her level/style of teaching.

Instead of being dependent on her to pass, I became dependent on myself. Consequently I finished with a 1st in that module.

It goes with everything in life. External circumstances can only affect you as much as you allow them to. Don’t allow them to take control, do not become dependent on the way external circumstances decide to treat you. Take responsibility and drop the “poor me” attitude that’s holding you down. You are capable of so much more than you can imagine.

    Wise words and very well put. Always take responsibility for the way you feel and don’t take the easy way out by finding a scapegoat. What happens, happens and it’s up to you to decide how you react. Remember too, grades don’t define you they are only a tool for society and can only show how well you take direction. Always do what makes you happy and make yourself your first priority! Infinite love and blessings.

    This message is all I needed now. A month ago my girlfriend got pregnant and at some point I didn’t even know what to do, she was to join University and travel to Venice this year (her dream destination) but I seemed to have spoilt it all in one cold evening. Friends advised me to procure abortion but I decided that there’s no penalty for doing the right thing, just financial strain and compromises. Having done so, she has developed a sense of entitlement that is so pissing, she was to move in with me but i’ll confess that sometimes I’ve thought of talking her into staying with the mum and await my support from there…This message is just cementing the decision I made to carry the weight of my mess all through..Shoot, I don’t even call it a mess anymore, it’s responsibility.
