    Wisdom Quote # 7- The Wisdom Garden (Volume 1)

    The world is full of people who deny responsibility for the status quo and put it on others, but those who take it have the grip to change the world – Coach Tarie: The Widom Garden (Volume 1)

    The state of things in the world today is because people try by all means to avoid responsibility as much as is possible. This is illustrated by the words of Jonathan Sacks a Jewish Rabbi, some decades ago who said,

    People are the victims of the tsunami of wishful thinking that washed across the West saying that you can have,

    1.sex without the responsibility of marriage, 
    2.children without the responsibility of parenthood, 
    3.social order without the responsibility of citizenship, 
    4.liberty without the responsibility of morality and 
    5.success and self esteem without the responsibility of work and earned achievement.

    Who is responsible for where you are at the moment? Most people do not realize the impact of failing to accept responsibility over their lives. Research has shown that most of the negative emotions that we have that hinder us from realizing our dreams are a result of failure to accept responsibility for our lives and the outcomes that we get. Denial of responsibility manifests itself in the blame game. We often blame others, surroundings or past experiences for our failures and this makes us fearful, worrisome, skeptical, judgmental, angry, insecure and bitter. These feelings become evident because we have enough justifications and explanations to why we are entitled to have them.

    The opposite is true when we accept responsibility for our lives and outcomes.  The more responsibility that you take on, the more in control you are likely to feel and the more in control you feel, the healthier the internal conversations that you have and the more resourceful the state of mind you will have. When you feel completely free you make better decisions and you are better positioned to do more of the things that you would want to do.

    Blame gives us justifications for our failures and this cripples us to taking the necessary actions to be taken. It also kills our creativity by putting the inner genius that is in every one of us to rest. Think of it this way, have you ever accepted a responsibility to do something that is bigger than your comfort zone like giving a speech in public? Consider how your mind begins to function and the ideas that begin to come as you think of producing the best in the presentation or activity. A lot of potential that you had not thought of is put to action and in the end we are usually surprised of what we could do that we were not aware of. This is the case with all the challenges and tasks that we tackle after accepting responsibility for them.

    Success is for those who take different responsibilities and success in fulfilling your purpose is not an exception. Who is responsible for your success in school? Many people create opportunities for elevation in life by taking responsibilities that others are not willing to take. Look at those who are elevated in the home, in church in the workplace, it is those who are ready to take responsibility or have taken it.

    Your influence is as big as the responsibility that you assume to be yours. Jesus of Nazareth, the saviour of the world took responsibility for the destiny of all humanity and to bear their sins on the cross.

    God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, [Philippians 2:9 NIV].

    The world changers of today have chosen to take responsibilities that are beyond their own small private lives. Some assume responsibility over their own families and you know nothing of them but those who have gone beyond their families are the ones who need no introduction. How big is the responsibility that you are willing to take that will bring happiness on others? Use your gifts, skills, talents, abilities, education, time, money and all other resources that you have to take responsibility. Begin to take responsibility today.

    Africa is not developing not because of shortage of skills, but because people are not willing to take responsibilities that they can take. Some will not use what they have because they are not being paid for it or no one is recognising them. I was challenged by this example in one article that I came across, a teacher will live with an uneducated maid, a medical practitioner will never attempt to help the needy around because they are not paid for it. Many have taken responsibilities for things that they were not paid for and made a difference that was later rewarded because they just chose to take responsibility. Take any responsibility that follows your passion, expresses your values, uses your gifts and skills and captures your instincts and you will be surprised by the meaning you get, the influence you will have and the rewards that you will have in the long run.
