The famous quote from Spider-man, ‘With great power comes great responsibility.’
This quote is also applicable in our life and not only just for Spider-man. You see, we will always face difficulties and challenges in our life, so much so sometimes we begin to feel bad for ourselves. A company you are working for many years never gave you a promotion or an increment in your salary. The people around you laugh off at your dream and goal. A failure in a business or sales can make you lose your motivation.
Here is the thing, all of us have great power within us to change things around. No matter what’s happening around us, we still can choose to be happy as we want to be. From the book I read ‘7 Habits of Successful People’, it said that responsibility is made out of 2 words, Respond and Ability, meaning to say it is your ability to respond. When things don’t right in your life, when you are going though a rough patch in your life, it is how you respond to it.
We can choose to respond negatively about the situation or we can choose to respond positively. At the end of the day, you owe it to yourself. No else can make you feel sad unless you do. Theodore Roosevelt said, ‘No One can make you feel inferior without your consent’. When things are not going your way and you are beating yourself up, remember it is not the result of the situation but the result of your own decision.
Hence, with great power comes great responsibility. You have great power within you, it is your responsibility to take care of yourself, to improve yourself in every single way, to give yourself a chance in life to be successful, to be responsible for the life you want to create. Never ever blame other people, the environment and the situation around you that make you this way, instead, take ownership of your life, and it is only you that can change things around and not anyone or anything. And I believe everyone here is able to take responsibility to become the best version of themselves!!!
