I'm fond of this saying. I use it a lot when I teach. I use it because, before I can help someone change their life I first have to get them to take responsibility for where they are. From there I can help them get where they want to go.
I think it's only a matter of time before Trump gets blamed for the recent disaster in Texas. It won't be his fault. No president can be held responsible for the weak reaction of 10,000 government workers. But that's not going to keep the media from blaming him.
What get's me fired up is the expectation by those in the media that it is governments responsibility to make sure you get out of town before disaster strikes.
Keep in mind this wasn't a tornado. The citizens of Houston had days to get out of the city. If you waited until the last minute, you might have had trouble leaving, but you had more than enough notice that a major storm was coming.
So if you didn't get out who's fault is it? If you haven't guessed, it's your fault. One of the great frustrations I have is how little personal responsibility people have these days. It's always somebody else's problem. It's someone else's fault. I'm sick of it. Man up. Take responsibility for your self and your family. Manage your business and grow up. Stop waiting for someone to show up and hold your hand.
It's great to be back in the studio this week, thanks so much for being part of the show. And if you're ready to change your life here's something I think might help.
