No matter the circumstances, no matter the goal, the most important element in the equation of success is… you guessed it, YOU!
This is not to say that the the greatest accomplishments are achieved single-handedly. Nor am I suggesting that the journey to success must be walked alone. In fact, I don’t believe either is an accurate description of success. Ever.
But —and this is a big but — it is up the each of us to accept our current position, envision the outcome we want, summon resources (this includes support from others), and take personal responsibility to make it happen.
Sure, there are many elements in a recipe, but someone has to make the recipe! That person is YOU! (Tweet this quote)
Anything less is a case of weak responsibility, blaming and/or complaining. It’s an attempt to remove the “you” from the equation of success. In other words, it’s a waste of time and energy.
If you want it, get it. Stop relying on other people to play an important role in the goal. Seek help, but keep moving (Tweet this quote).
