If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.We should take charge of our own lives and stop complaining and blame others. Doing so will allow us to develop a hunger to accomplish our dreams. It is simple to look around and blame the world for our situation and problems. There are some external factors in this world that we have no control over, but we do control our attitude and reaction to problems. We are the only person in charge of our lives, and our life is a result of every decision we have made.
