The lives that we have can sometime feel as though it is run by someone else. And when that happens, most of us will be dreading to continue living. Being the author of your own life story is empowering as much as it is nerve-wrecking. The knowledge that you have the power to write a great piece for yourself could sometimes be burdened by the overwhelming responsibility that comes with it. Yes, it is much easier to blame someone else when things go wrong but if you want to be successful, you need to own your own life. And that means taking responsibility for your decisions and mistakes.
