Road to Freedom

More Straight Talk to teens today – listen carefully because this bit of advice can really make a huge difference in your life. Here it is: think of responsibility as a privilege and stop thinking of it as a penalty.  I know it’s hard, but if you start treating responsibility as a pleasure and not as an imposition you will create for yourself all kinds of new opportunities. Believe me.  It’s true.

Dependability and self-reliance are the tickets to more freedom and independence. Don’t waste energy resisting what you have to do. Instead, win others’ trust by doing what you should do. If you do this, if you embrace responsibility in both the big and little things, people will sit up and take notice.

Let me tell you why: because you will be different, and I mean that in a good way. You will stand out among your peers.  Remarkably, you will even stand out among most adults.  It’s the truth. Responsibility is the road to freedom.

Take Away: Responsibility is the road to freedom.
