The first decision for success: The Buck stops here!

March 15th, 2007 | No Comments |

I am so inspired but Andy Andrews’ book “The Travelers Gift.” If you haven’t read this book, get it and read it. It will change your life. This one book has had a huge effect on the way I perceive myself and the possibilities around me. I won’t give away the story line of the book but I will touch upon each of the decisions for success covered in his book. I will touch on the first in this article.

The Buck stops here! What exactly does that even mean? In doing some research I found that it means: Responsibility is not passed on beyond this point. U.S. president Harry S. Truman had a sign with this inscription on his desk. This was meant to indicate that he didn’t ‘pass the buck’ to anyone else but accepted personal responsibility for the way the country was governed. Although he didn’t create the saying, it may have never been as commonly know if he hadn’t used it so frequently.

The buck stops here. Take responsibility for your actions whether positive or negative. This is a phrase of integrity and true character. When facing difficulties or tough decisions take hold of what is placed before you and run with it. The only one that is going to create success for you is you! Where you are today physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially is because of your thoughts. Your actions are a direct reflection of what you think about and thus, your results are a manifestation of your thoughts and actions. You are where you are because of you.

Take hold of that concept, accept your wins and your losses as your own and start new. Today is the first day to the rest of your life. You own it. Whatever brand has marked you in the past is no longer. What you were yesterday will not matter tomorrow because you have the power to change that. It is within you to create anything. Take responsibility for your actions. The buck stops here!
