If It Is To Be, It Is Up To Me

At the bottom no one in life can help anyone else in life; this one experiences over and over in every conflict and every perplexity: that one is alone. That isn’t as bad as it may first appear; and again it is the best thing in life that each should have everything in himself; his fate, his future, his whole expanse and world.
– Rilke, Rainer Maria

Life is an endless series of choices, and taking responsibility for these choices as well as the consequences of your actions is very important if you want to be fulfilled and happy. Blaming others for your difficulties and failures is the easy way out, and that is why it is so popular. However, the happiest and most successful people choose to control their destiny so fate and others do not. They believe that choice more than chance determines their circumstances. Even in circumstances for which they are not responsible, they still take responsibility for their actions.

“Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final”

Rainer Maria Rilke
