I was recently reading a book called “Dying to Live” by James Allen. As much as we like to blame our troubles on others or what we’ve done wrong, we’re actually responsible for our own problems. The only way we can escape our own problems is to change them into our own solutions.
Life is full of problems, but most of us don’t deal with them by dwelling on them. In fact, most of us choose to make the problem go away or ignore it. But if you change them, so that they don’t exist anymore, you will start to die. We need to face our fears, become our own solution to whatever it is we’re facing, and then try to solve it.
The problem with most of the things we face is that we fail to take responsibility for them. We tend to say “I couldnt” or “I shouldnt,” or “I did everything I could”. When we do that, we become the problem. We don’t take personal responsibility for our problems, and when we do, we become the solution (not to mention the problem).
When we fail to take personal responsibility for our problems, we fail to take personal responsibility for ourselves. So we become the problem. When we become the problem, we become the solution. That’s bad.
Thats pretty much exactly what we did when we told everyone that our new game was being cancelled. We said it was over because we failed to take personal responsibility for the company. We failed to take personal responsibility for our own lives. We failed to take personal responsibility for our own problems. So we became the solution for the company and we failed to take personal responsibility for our own problems. When we fail to take personal responsibility for ourselves, we fail to take personal responsibility for our problem.
If we don’t take personal responsibility for our problems, we fail to take personal responsibility for our problems. We fail to take personal responsibility for our selves.
The solution is not to blame someone else for your problems, but to take personal responsibility for your problems. You might not know how to fix your own problems, but you can always take personal responsibility for your own problems.
This is a great quote by the late great philosopher, Viktor E. Frankl. Frankl is famous for his work with the mentally ill (called The Kindertransport) during the Nazi concentration camps. Frankl’s work with these people was so life changing that the Nazi’s attempted to kill him in his cell because they were worried he would inform on them.
I know this one seems a bit harsh, especially since we don’t have any Nazis in the game (although they could turn up later), but this is a very interesting quote from Frankl. I’m sure you know Frankl better than I do, but if you don’t know who he is, I suggest that you don’t read this article, because this is an argument that you absolutely should read.
I really can’t get over this quote. Frankl’s the guy that said, “If you want to be free, you have to be free to think for yourself. You can only be free when you’re not living in fear.” I think this quote by Frankl is a great statement and he should be remembered for it. It is also one of the most relevant and important quotes in history, so I think it is a great idea to really study this quote.
