In order to understand responsibility, it’s first important, to realize, that there are two forces, positive, and negative. In order to be positive someone must take responsibility for their actions. It starts with one step, at a time, just like any other good thing in life. To many people today blame everyone and anyone for their problems, and maybe they did contribute to them, but what people don’t realize is that by shifting all the blame on someone else, they are neglecting the problem. The problems are still going to be there no matter who’s fault it is, but if someone decides to find the solution to the problem instead of shifting the blame, then they are climbing out of the hole they were in. Someone should be Responsible for their actions no matter how they got where they are at. someone should not be a part of the problem, they should be a part of the solution.

When I did my habits I would find people, places, and things to blame. I would look for an excuse to use, and when someone looks for an excuse to do something that have set in their heart to do, they will find it. I was wrong. Responsibility is up to each person, and everyone has responsibilities. When a child is young they are responsible to maybe keep their room clean, and brush their teeth. The only person that has no responsibility is babies. Can you name some things you are responsible for?

Discipline is essential with responsibility, because sometimes doing the right positive thing will not be easy. Not much in life is more rewarding than completing a hard task, that someone doesn’t think they can do. Challenge yourself to be responsible, and push yourself with discipline and motivation. Shifting the blame is like walking in quicksand, the more someone blames others the more they sink. If people don’t take responsibility and learn, then they get stuck in a cycle, and it hard to get out to the cycle, once someone is stuck. I am here to tell you there is hope. Breaking bad habits and creating positive good habits will change someones life, i know it has changed my life. I still have a long way to go, but I know that by working on one habit at a time I will find my way.

This blog has been a blessing I have learned more from doing this than I have learned about anything. I love you all and we will talk more on this really soon.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
