Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 25, 2014
Bill Maynard, author of the self-help book ‘You Matter’, has recently released an article discussing the importance of taking responsibility for personal life decisions. The article suggests that while it may be easy to point to life challenges for which others are to blame, such as having an absentee father, an overprotective mother, or a poor education, it remains the responsibility of the individual to rise above these challenges and take control of who they are.
The article goes on to express the belief that it is the difficulties in life that challenge who we are as people, giving us the opportunity to grow our character.
“The hard times show us our true colors. The setbacks show us our true character,” the blog states.
Using challenges and difficulties to mold and shape character for the better is a mantra that is continued throughout the authors recently published book. Excerpts are available by clicking here.
The article concludes with a inspiring push, encouraging people toward taking control and responsibility of their lives to continue toward goals and dreams, reflecting the personality of the author himself, a successful company CEO and and professor.
