BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, July 6th, 2012 by Jeff Maziarek in SPIRITUALITY SIMPLIFIED

“Adopting the mindset that you do indeed cause/create all of the circumstances you experience in life, even if you don’t recall doing so consciously, opens the door to the potential for greater joy by removing you from the backwards-focused paralysis of blame. It also transports you into the now moment of responsibility, where you can actually take action to resolve problems and issues.

In that regard, I will never forget the following statement made during a presentation by a gifted motivational speaker named Brian Tracy: “Blame looks backward; responsibility is today.” What a simple yet powerful concept! Either you accept responsibility, which is focused in the present moment where solutions can actually be identified and implemented, or you stay mired in the past by pointing the finger of blame at other people, at yourself, at God, etc.”
