Fault Vs Responsibility by Will Smith
Will Smith just delivered a super-POWERFUL speech today (January 30th 2018) on his Instagram live. I wanted to edit together the entire speech for you guys before it disappears. So here it is.
This speech is about taking responsibility for your happiness and your life-situation.
When you blame others, you give away your power and you become a victim who is at effect to bad things happening to you.
But when you Take Responsibility, you now have the power to take charge, take control, and create a better life. “It really doesn’t matter whose fault it is that something is broken. It’s your responsibility to fix it.” -Will Smith
“It’s not your fault if your partner cheated and ruined your marriage. But it is for damn sure your responsibility to figure out how to take that pain and how to overcome that and build a happy life for yourself.” -Will Smith
“Fault and Responsibility do not go together as socks.” -Will Smith
“When something is somebody’s fault we want them to suffer. We want them punished. We want them to pay. We want it to be their responsibility to fix it. But that’s not how it works, especially when it’s your heart.” -Will Smith
“As long as we’re pointing the finger and stuck in whose fault something is, we’re jammed and trapped into victim mode. And when you’re in victim mode, you’re stuck and suffering.” -Will Smith
“The road to power is in taking responsibility. Your heart, your life, and your happiness are your responsibility and your responsibility alone.” -Will Smith
“Taking Responsibility is not an admission of guilt.” -Will Smith
“Taking Responsibility is a recognition of the power that you seize when you STOP blaming people.” -Will Smith
“Taking Responsibility is an act of emotional self-defense.” -Will Smith
“Taking Responsibility is taking your power back.” -Will Smith
