Let's talk about taking full ownership and responsibility for your life. The moment you recognize that everything that happens is because either you created it or allowed it is the moment that you take full control of your life. There’s no one who embodies this better than Danette May, a woman who has heroically risen from rock bottom to inspire so many people, and this is how she thinks about it.
This thinking is consistent with the book “Success Principles” by Jack Canfield, where he says that everything that happens to you abides by the same formula:
E + R = O. Event + Response = Outcome.
You are always in control of your response to the things that happen, and therefore, you are always influencing the outcome. So when you find yourself in the fire, control your response, find meaning in it, and it will resolve just as it is meant to.
