Will Smith On The Power of Taking Responsibility Rather Than Blaming Others!
By Jatinder Singh, Mentorship Coach & Associate Partner, Lighthouse International
How often does something go wrong in our lives which isn't our fault and we blame others? Yet have you ever stopped to ask yourself how productive this behaviour actually is?
In this video, Hollywood legend Will Smith gives some really powerful advice on why taking responsibility to fix a broken situation is incredibly empowering to us, even if the situation wasn't our fault.
Taking responsibility for our lives and the situations we encounter is one of the fundamental principles of leading an effective life. Stephen Covey, the author of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, points to the undeniable fact that our ability to take responsibility is THE key to living a happy and successful life, it is the foundational principle that all the other habits of effectiveness are built upon! If we break ourselves against this fundamental principle as Will Smith says we will remain victims of circumstances and other people's opinions our whole lives!
