. Not understanding and accepting that you as an adult are the decision maker about your personal and professional life.

Remember:

" one can make you feel inferior without your consent..."

Eleanor Roosevelt as quoted by Martyn Newman, 2007

"...individuals can create their own unique lifestyle and are therefore responsible for their own personality and behaviour. They are creative actors rather than passive reactors..."

Alfred Alder as quoted by Martyn Newman, 2007

"...we can all find reasons to blame others for circumstances and even for your personalities, but in reality you never actually give away responsibility. The only thing you really give away is are still completely responsible but by giving up control you lose your ability to direct your life and lead effectively......responsibility, control and a sense of independence, or autonomy, go hand-in-hand......there is a powerful connection between the level of overall responsibility you accept and the level of personal emotional capital you are capable of building..."

Martyn Newman, 2007
