One of Reillys favourite books is ‘The Midas Power’ by Pádraic Ó Máille. It was written amidst the trauma and the uncertainty of the last economic recession.
From time to time he dusts it down and invariably unearths a gem of wisdom. Here’s one that never fails to give him a lift.
I Am Responsible
I am responsible.
For every result in my life.
For every failure and every victory.
For every time I flounder, function and flourish.
I am responsible for my state of mind.
For the choices I make consciously, and those I do not make.
I accept implicitly that I am precisely as happy and fulfilled
And as successful as I make my mind up to be.
I am responsible for the oomph in my life.
When people love me, I am responsible.
When they resist me, I am responsible.
Always my choice.
I am responsible for the buzz in my life.
Newton was on the money when he said that
For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction.
I pamper my body with daily vigorous exercise and great food.
And it responds swimmingly.
I am responsible for the money in my life.
When I’m broke I am responsible.
When I’m flush, I take all the credit.
Either way, I know there’s more than enough money to
Satiate my every need. All I need to do is be responsible.
I am responsible for where I live right now.
At times I’ve lived in the past but it’s history.
At times I’ve lived in the future but it’s a mystery.
I choose to live in the present. To accept every event and
Person as they are, not as how I’d like them to be.
I am responsible for being either a victim or a wizard.
Victims bitch and blame and make excuses.
Wizards believe in the supreme magic of responsibility.
Magic is the process of producing remarkable results.
I AM RESPONSIBLE.
‘Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.’
— Sigmund Freud

— Winston Churchill
