From this moment forward, I will accept responsibility for my past. I understand that the beginning of wisdom is to accept the responsibility for my own problems and that by  accepting responsibility for my past, I free myself to move in to  move in to a bigger, brighter future  of my own choosing.

Never  again will I blame my parents, my spouse, my boss  or other employees for my present situation. Neither  my  education nor lack of one, my genetics, or the  circumstantial ebb and flow of everyday life will affect my future in a negative way.  If I allow myself to blame these uncontrollable forces for  my lack of success, I  will not let my history control my destiny.

The buck stops here. I accept responsibility for my past.

I am responsible for my success.

I am where I am today mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially because of decisions I have made. My decisions have always been governed by my thinking. There fore, I am where I am today mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially because of how I think. Today I Will begin the process of changing where I am mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially by changing the way I think.

My thoughts will be constructive, never destructive. My mind will live in the solution of the future. It will not dwell in the problems of the past. I will seek the association of those who are working and striving to bring about positive changes in the world. I will never seek comfort by associating with those who have decided to be comfortable.

When faced with the opportunity to make a decision, I will make one. I understand that God did not put in me the ability to always make right decisions. He did, however, put in me the ability to make a decision and then make it right.

The rise and fall of my emotional tide will not deter me from my course. When I make a decision, I will stand behind it. My energy will go in to making the decision. I will waste none on second thoughts. My life will not be an apology. It will be a statement.

The buck stops here. I control my thoughts. I control my emotions.

In the future when I am tempted to ask the question “Why me?” I will immediately counter with the answer:  “Why me?” Challenges are gifts, opportunities to learn. Problems are the common thread running through the lives of great men and women. In times of adversity, I will have a choice to make. My thoughts will be clear. I will make the right choice. Adversity is preparation for greatness. I will accept this preparation .Why me? Why not me?  I will be prepared for something great!

I accept responsibility for my past . I control my thoughts. I control my emotions. I am responsible for my success .

The buck stops here.
