SORT BY Relevancy
Self reliance begins with accepting responsible for is what is your purpose. Ask and answer this question: What do I want out of life? You do not have to know where you are going to set a personal goal for your life. Take a moment and set your life’s agenda by asking: Where am I placing my attention during the day? What am I paying attention to in my life and to what should I be paying attention?
Are your thoughts your own - are you being purposeful in your thinking? What is your attitude towards life and others - Do you expect good things and therefore generate enthusiasm? Knowing your core values and being true to them help establish the path that you need to travel to enjoy a fullfilling life. It is worth the effort to meditate daily on what is important to you to feel that your life matters and determine what actions to take to ensure that everything needed is being done.
Emanate joy and joy will come to you. Refuse to allow circumstance to dictate your well-being. Be open to good things. Generate your own happiness. Decide that your attitude will be good and the experiences of the day will support that. Don't be afraid to enjoy affection and show empathy for others. Open up to feelings of love for mankind. Do a quiet act of kindness for a neighbor, family member or a stranger. Small gestures expand the greatness of the universe.
The universe celebrates rain with a rainbow. Create a rainbow for someone drenched by the rain of disappointment or poverty. Radiate a vibrancy that infects others. You are responsible for your actions and only you control your actions. Guide your actions toward healthy outcomes. When you are confident of who you are you have an aim to your life, you control the focus of your attentions, you feel love and empathy for others, you radiate joy and vibrancy and you create happiness for yourself and those around you.
It’s so easy to blame the outside world for what is happening to us rather than taking personal responsibility for our part in what’s unfolding or what is. We break our leg and it’s the rough terrain’s fault. We lose our keys and someone moved them from where we left them. We’re late for a meeting and the cat threw up just as we were getting ready to leave the house. When confronted do we defend ourselves and our actions or look for our part? Blaming and fault-finding as opposed to taking personal responsibility pervade virtually every area of our lives. It has become an epidemic! If we want to feel good about ourselves, we need to take responsibility for our actions, our words, our thoughts, our emotions, our choices, our parenting, our popularity… It’s easy to blame a parent or our childhood for why we do or did what we did, but it misses the point. It’s not about pinpointing who is at fault. It’s about recognizing that the buck stops here!
Joe and his crew talk about Personal Reponsibility and Common Sense, and how it is lacking nowadays with the current generation of people.

The truth is that nobody forces you to think, feel, or behave a certain way. While you may be ostracized by society or even punished if you don't follow certain rules, still nobody else can "make" you do or feel anything. You are not a victim to people or circumstances. This is not to say that you can control all situations, certainly you cannot. But you alone are responsible for your thoughts, emotions, and actions in relation to that situation. Join us as we explore why is it easier for some to play the victim rather than take responsibility.

Join us at Up Close & Personal as we help celebrate a milestone in the musical career of one of our fave guitarist Steve Oliver. With eight albums over the last 15 years, Steve's "Best Of so far" gathers multiple #1 Billboard hits and fan favorites including 2 brand new songs.
Join us as if we feature one amazing bassist taking his music to what I thought to be impossible to do and take his new release to an all new level...Michael Manson's latest release "Thumpin" is one of, if not the best release of the summer!! Here is what some have to say!!...
If you like "LIVE" music albums, you'll love this set. It's rockin' from the first to the last song. MM and his band are some of the most talented smooth jazz artists that I've ever experienced. Khari Parker on the drums is the man. He's sets a strong groove and everybody else just lays in the "cut" so to speak. Your head and feet will move the entire concert. That's what it feels like on a good stereo or surround setup. You won't be disappointed. The recording quality is top notch and you can hear ALL of the musicians and background singers. Just Superb. W. Harrison- Fan
"One of Smooth Jazz's most creative and explosive bassists, Chicago-based Michael Manson has put out some great studio discs - but nothing tops the wild abandon and all-out joy of his live performances. So it's exciting that he's giving us his unfiltered, hard groovin' best on THUMPIN' LIVE, a 16-track set CD/DVD of the multi-talented artist at his best. In addition to expansive romps through his popular tunes like "Outer Drive," key tracks include the soulful, swaying "Just One Touch" and the brassy, heavy bottom way out rockin' funk of "The Bottom Line," fashioned as a tribute to his late hero George Duke, whom Manson first played with on Kirk Whalum's "The Gospel According To Jazz" in 1997. Nobody does THUMPIN' LIVE better than Manson!" ~JONATHAN WIDRAN Smooth Jazz.com

Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh discussed "Responsibility & Luck, Chapter Four" with listeners in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio.
The purpose of a theory of moral responsibility is to limit moral judgments of persons to their voluntary doings, products, and qualities. However, moral judgments are not the only – or even the most common – judgments of people we commonly make. So what are the various kinds of judgments we make of other people? What are the distinctive purposes and demands of those judgments? What is the relationship between those judgments and a person's voluntary actions, outcomes, and traits? I answered these questions and more in this discussion of Chapter Four of my book,Responsibility & Luck: A Defense of Praise and Blame.
