The most important first step to success is to take 100% responsibility for what happens in your life.

Look at that word responsibility—it's comprised of the words response and ability, meaning "the ability to respond".

When you take responsibility, you are telling yourself and the universe, "I am able to respond to what's happening in my life, and I am not a victim."

This is the most important first step to success.

I've been blessed to interview more than 50 millionaires and multi-millionaires, and one thing I've come to realize is that the #1 trait of UNsuccessful people is not taking 100% responsibility for their lives.

They blame others, the government, the economy, the weather...

Anything but taking responsibility for their own actions.

When you don't take response-ability, you give up the ABILITY to RESPOND – and therefore you give up your power to change, which means you're living a life that's not your own and you are giving up the power to change.

Bottom line: No highly successful person became that way by NOT taking responsibility for their lives.

Take Action Challenge:

Take 100% responsibility for your life

I believe in you!
