Explore the value of Responsibility
A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.
We must exchange the philosophy of excuse - what I am is beyond my control - for the philosophy of responsibility.
