7 (Borrowed) Steps to Being Accountable for Your Life

Several of my friends are independent business women. They work hard at building their own businesses and they are consistently active in personal growth. I admire them and appreciate when they share with me things they're learning.

About a year ago, I received this list from one of them and I would like to share it with you.

The list has no title but 'You' are the main idea in each numbered point.
Read it and see what you think.
I suggest reading it out loud.

1. The Buck Stops Here
            I accept responsibility for my past
            I control my thoughts-I control my emotions
            I am responsible for my success

2. I Will Seek Wisdom
            I will become a humble servant to others
            I will look to open the door for someone
            I will listen to the counsel of wise men
            I will choose my friends with care

3.  I am a Person of Action
            I inspire others with my activity
            I am a leader-leading is doing-I must move forward

4.  I Have a Decided Heart
            I do not procrastinate. All my problems become smaller when I confront them
            I will not wait.
            I am passionate about my vision for the future
            My course has been charted. My destiny is assured.

5.  Today I Will Choose to Be Happy-I am the Possessor of a Grateful Spirit
            I will smile at every person I meet
            My smile has become my calling card
            My smile is the key to my emotional makeup
            I will greet each day with laughter

6.  I will Greet This Day with a Forgiving Spirit
            I have forgiven myself
            By forgiving myself, I ease the doubts, fears and frustration that have kept my past in the present
            From this day forward, my history will cease to control my destiny
            My life has just begun
            I will forgive those who criticizes me unjustly

7.  I Will Persist with Expectation
            I have faith in my future
            I do not look left or right, I look forward
            I can only persist
            Faith has no limits

Sometimes we have to look in the mirror for the answer.
            I will expect miracle in my life
            I focus on results

At times, we are where we are,
because we want to be- author unknown
