“In dreams begin responsibilities.”- William Butler Yeats

In your own dreams begin your responsibilities for your life. You are responsible for your life, for whatever is happening in your life. It is your responsibility to live your life, to change your life, to do great things, and to treat yourself with love. Taking responsibility for your life is about you. It is about taking action to change your life.

Responsibility is the key to success. Responsibility is the way forward. If you want to grow in your life, in your career, you must take responsibility for your life. It is important to take responsibility for your life, if you want to grow. And remember, the higher you go in your life, the higher you go in your career, the more responsibilities you will have. So to do more in your life, here are four easy ways to live a responsible life.

Stop doing what is not working

“If you do what you’ ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”- Tony Robbins

Remember that you are not going to be here forever. So why are you wasting your precious time? If something is not working out for you, stop doing it. If what you are doing is not working, if you are not getting the right results, then it means you are responsible for changing it. You are responsible for making it better. No one is going to do it for you. It is your life, so you are responsible for changing it.

Take risks

Yes, it is hard to take risks. But without risks, there can be no growth. If you are not willing to take risks, you are not going to grow. But if you have the courage to take risks, calculated risks, you will grow. Things will work out for you. As Jim Rohn once said, “If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.” My question is: Do you want to settle for less? If you do not want to settle for less, you must be willing to take calculated risks.

Always look for opportunities to help yourself

“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others.”- Brian Tracy

Remember that opportunities are everywhere. God has a lot of things in store for you. If want to succeed in your life, always look for opportunities to help yourself, to grow yourself. Do not run away from problems. When you are faced with a problem, take the opportunity to explore it. In his book The Secret to Attracting Luck: 50 Ways to Manifest Abundance & Good Fortune, Richard Webster writes, “Problems are surprisingly useful… as they provide opportunities to learn and grow.” So when you are faced with problems, take advantage of them.

You must change to survive

“It doesn’t matter how many things you want to change, but to increase your luck you need to make just one change at a time. If you try to do too many simultaneously, you won’t succeed at any of them.”- Richard Webster

We are all changing. We change every day. And everything around us is changing. So if you want to succeed, you must embrace change. Do not fight change, embrace it. Pearl Bailey once said, “You must change in order to survive.” To survive, you must change. You must do new things. You must face your fears. So are you willing to embrace change?

4 Ways To Live A Happier Life

The happiness of one’s own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul, one must try it include, as necessary to one’s own happiness, the happiness of others.”- Paramahansa Yogananda

Happiness is not what you keep; it is what you give to other people. When it comes to your own happiness, you are responsible for making yourself happy. Happiness is a make-it-yourself business. Remember, you cannot find happiness by doing the wrong things. You cannot find happiness by thinking the wrong thoughts. If you want to find your own happiness, you must think well.

To live a happier life, here are some strategies for you:

Believe in the glory of God

When you believe in the glory of God, nothing can touch you. If you are going to reach your highest potential in your life, you have got to believe in the glory of God. Charles Spurgeon said, “Nothing is able to damage the glory of God.” If nothing can damage the glory of God, nothing can damage you.

Focus on what you have

You cannot find happiness if you do not focus on what makes you really happy. Wealth comes from enjoying what you have. Wealth doesn’t come from chasing what you don’t have. It is what you have right now that is going to make you really happy.

You cannot see what you have if you do not focus on it. In the words of Charles Spurgeon, “It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.” You can make space for happiness by enjoying what you have.

Do not forget to love yourself

Even if you don’t focus on what you have, even if you don’t slow down to enjoy what you have, but do not forget to love yourself, to give yourself true love. Soren Kierkegaard said, “Above all do not forget your duty to love yourself.” Do not let the fear of other people’s opinions of you stop you from loving yourself. If you cannot love yourself, no one can love you.

Be patient with yourself

Be patient with yourself. Slow down to enjoy the good life. Stop running. Life is not about running; it is about you. It is about spending time with yourself. It is about listening to your inner voice. Soren Kierkegaard said, “Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.” Carl Rogers said, “The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” Do you agree with Carl Rogers?
