I read this today. Found it very honest and true!!! Now to re-commit and get my own butt in gear!!

“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

Don’t blame your parents, your friends, your teachers, your boss, or anyone else. Blame yourself and then do something about it. If something isn’t right and needs to change in your life, you’re the only one who can make that change.

The trajectory of your life is directly proportional to the strength of your choices. To say you have no choice is to relieve yourself of all the responsibility and control you have over your life, which is another way of saying, “I don’t care. I give up.”


Very nice, thank you!
