This article is the first part of the series Roadmap of Diffpath.
So, do you want to influence the world? Go ahead, do it.
The first step to greatness is to take responsibility for your actions. You can do a lot, in fact, you can do almost anything. It all starts with you. The responsibility is on your site, it will be, It has always been.
Now, what should you do?
Go ahead and do what you need to do, you will find meaning in that. The meaning will give you sense in life. You have the power, you can do it. You know you can.
I believe in you. Start believing in yourself. That would be all for the first step to greatness. Take responsibility for your actions.
It’s your responsibility to take action towards your goals, every day. That’s the first way towards your success and fulfillment.
You Can Do A Lot
Look in the mirror.
Aren’t you satisfied with your life?
What can you do to improve?
Look, do you know what I’m doing right now? I cannot write the article, because I am on a trip and don’t have a laptop with me. So I, or it’s inconvenient for me to write.
However, it doesn’t stop me from taking action.
So what am I doing?
I’m actually looking for a script to have already done on the laptop.
And now I’m just speaking to my phone, transcribing it into words through an app. And later, I will be able to just edit it and upload it as a blog post.
This way, I will do this five times faster than I would by typing on the phone, or just writing later because the day might not come.
Today is your day. You start acting right now. Do it. Don’t wait. Don’t wait too long. Just to think. And you will be alright.
You’re powerful, not a mere being. Look, what people are capable of doing before you. You’ve done a lot. Don’t go ahead and do it. Do what you want to do. The first step is only you. Maybe you won’t be able to become the next great novelist in one day. You know, you’re able to write bad 300 words or let’s start with one sentence. That’s it for today. Start with the day.
Do you want to be great at running? Run for one minute.
You want to be in good shape. What should you do? Yeah, you guessed it right. Do one push-up. That’s all. If you can’t do one freaking push up then do one push-up standing next to the wall, you’re able to do that.
And for that, you will find the power did one small success per day. Then you can start doing another thing. The next day does two push-ups and three push-ups. You can do it. You can do it all. So don’t procrastinate. Start now. It’s on you don’t pay any other people for your lack of success, Firefly favors. Even if something bad happens to you. And just on you.
Examples from life
So, your girlfriend is not acting the way you want her to be acting? It’s your responsibility to lead her well, to woo her, to establish boundaries.
Your boss treats you badly and does not give you a raise? It’s your responsibility to either level up your skills at work and be more focused – or just walk away if it doesn’t improve your situation at work.
Don’t you have enough money? It’s your responsibility to learn new skills, ask for a raise or start a new side business.
As you can see, you can do a lot. And all of this starts with you.
DIfference between Fault and Responsibility
It might not be your fault. But it’s always your responsibility to get things right. At least this mindset lets you progress in life.
For example, you might be having bad genes and it’s more difficult for you to lose weight. You’re born with that. But, so what? It might be 2 times harder for you to lose weight. It might not be your fault because you were born with that. But, guess what? It’s still your responsibility to go to the gym, take care of your diet, and do as much as you can to improve your situation.
If you don’t go to the gym and do not eat the right food in the right amount – then it’s your fault, regardless if you’re born with disadvantages or not.
It’s the same in every other area of your life.
Just take responsibility to play the game with the correct strategies with the cards you were given by fate.
What’s the alternative? Blame the universe and the whole world that your life sucks.
I think it’s a bad idea but I will let you decide on your own.
Waiting till other people or the government will fix your problems is a foolish idea.
Victim Mentality vs Powerful Mentality
Life sucks. People are cruel. No shit. Everybody knows it. But what are you going to do with it? Are you going to cry, blame other people, wait till you’re on your deathbed, and regret all the things you didn’t do?
I think that a better option is to take responsibility, try doing a lot of things.
Imagine, how the world would look like if everybody would fix their stuff and leave the place better than before they arrived there? I think the world would be a beautiful place. But to do this, work is required.
You’re powerful, remember that.
If you look at the world as the place where there are growth opportunities and to get things done – as opposed to the place where everybody including fate is against you – then you will gain the power and you will be able to move mountains.
What Should You Do Now?
Think about 1 thing you can do right now to improve your situation in life – and then do it, even for 5 minutes. Go, now!
Take responsibility for all of your actions and your life will be much much better – I guarantee you.
