Principle 1: Take 100 % Responsibility for your life

In this Principle, author says that We people must take personal responsibility. The author says that we maybe can’t change circumstances, we maybe can’t change the season or the wind, but the thing which we can change is our own selves,

In this chapter author says that we people believe that we are entitled to a great life- that somehow, somewhere, someone is responsible for filling our lives with continual happiness,  we believe that there’s someone who will give everything to us, will be given exciting career, blissful personal relationship and nurturing family time just because we exist.

But author says that the real truth is something very opposite of our belief and thinking, and this chapter and this entire book is based on that one real truth is That one person who is responsible for everything in your life is no one But You, that one person on whom your entire quality of life depends in no one But It’s You.  Hence author says that if you want to become successful then you have to take 100 percent responsibility for everything that you experience in your life. Everything includes every aspect of your life, your relationship, career, health, fitness, work-life, job, Your Feelings- Everything means everything what happens to you or in your life is your responsibility.

We people like to blame others for everything, we blame our parents, siblings, friends, outside environment, government, society, but we fail to see the real problem, we fail to see that problem is not outside but the real problem is inside, we never want to look at where the real problem is-ourselves.

Author says in order to take 100 percent responsibility you need to give up complaining, you need to give up blaming, author also talk about that we people most of the time complain to the wrong person, we complain to those who just can’t do anything about that complain, for example we come to home and complain to our spouse about our work place or boss,  we go to office and complain about home issues with our friends why we do this, the reason for this is because it’s less risky, it takes courage to say the right thing to right one, for example, if you are not happy with your spouse cooking or with house system then tell your spouse about it instead of complaining, author says that we people should replace complain with request and actions, because requesting and then taking actions accordingly will give you desired outcomes.
