The Power Of Responsibility

the power of responsibility

Last day here in the Monaco area and wanted to shoot out a quick video/post on the Power of Responsibility.

I was listening to a powerful audio this morning on something I learned a while back and thought it would be a good topic.

When we accept that we are responsible for our lives a lot can change.

We can take control.

We can make a change.

Responsibility means we are in control.

It does not have to mean “blame”.

When things get tough we might not necessarily be to blame for the way that they are but we are responsible… we are responsible to create a response.

After all…

it’s spelt “response-able”

Today, go out and take responsibilty for a part of your life that you’d like to change.

You have the power.

Make it happen!

        Hello Andrew, thanks for following me. I just took sometime in listening to one of your videos after all this. I have to say it was worth listening/watching and for a young man; you have a wealth of knowledge and very wise. I just want to say keep up the good work that you’re doing.

        And continue to inspire the young and the old.

    Hi Andrew!
    Wow, I’m not even finished working on my blog yet and already you have found me. Thank YOU for being my very first follower. From what I have seen on your blog, I am sure the right person picked me. I love the positivity and energy I get from your blog so far. I have just entered (or am entering) the blogosphere so wish me luck. Thanks a lot.

    Hi, you followed my blog today, I hope you understand in all the accounts that I post there is the unwritten account I wish to make you aware of. This is my unwritten / unspoken (until now) promise to each of my children. I made the decision to bring them into this world and I will forever be responsible for that decision. I have an unspoken promise to be my children’s advocate (and sometimes the center of their mom’s uncool kicked)
    I realise some of my decisions haven’t always been the best decisions but I am dealing with the repercussions of my course. I will always strive to make better choices but I am human (I chose not to drink I chose not to gamble I chose not to do drugs) can’t quit get myself to chose to quit smoking. As I’m always making the excuse that stress drives my reason to continue. (Yeah I know better and have switched to the electric cigarettes trying to reinforce /force myself to change for the better.
    With that said I do enjoy your message. I really appreciate hearing more people taking responsibility for their choices and life. You definitely are an inspiration. Thank you for your time.

    Andrew, Thanks for following me on my blog, Caitspace. This post, The Power of Responsibility was really good, but I don’t necessarily agree with you 100%. Here’s why. My life drastically changed 7 years 9days ago because of a snipers bullet. My life right now, would not be if it wasn’t for that bullet. It wasn’t my fault, there was nothing I could have done to prevent it, and the ripple effect of that bullet has dug deeply into my life. BUT I believe I’m right where I’m supposed to be. I hope that makes sense. I didn’t ask for this type of life, but it is what I’ve been given. The only part that I can take responsibility for are my actions that I take in my life from 7 years 8 days ago until today and onward.

    I hope you enjoyed Monaco. I have found that in many Southern European cities scooters are the most common means of travel. I have found it the same in Sicily, Barcelona, Malta, and Athens. In Sicily they acted like they were all on Harley’s, lining up at the light and reving their engines trying to look badass. Totally hilarious! But then again, I’ve been to Rolling Thunder in DC on Memorial Day. Now those are real bikes!

      Hi Cait, you hit the nail right on the head. What happens in life might not be our fault but we have the responsibility to act within our current situations. Sometimes things happen that seem terrible and they are not our fault. I am sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your personal story!

    Love, love, love your posts. I spent the weekend with the Lord and these are the same things He had to say to me Himself. Cool that He’s speaking through you as well.

    Thanks for following my blog. I’m sure you’ll especially enjoy this week’s posts. They are the conversations God had with me about stepping into the purpose He has for my life.

    Have a God day!
