What Made the Difference?

Three children grew up in the same household, one year apart. They had the same education, the same opportunities, the same upbringing, the same parents, the same genes – and yet, by the age of 40 – each had done very different things with their lives.

What made the difference? The answer to this question is the answer as to why some people are more successful in life than others… It has to do with our response to what happens to us. One response is to feel like a victim at the effect of everything – and take everything personally. A second response is to go into denial, forget and pretend that nothing happened. The third and most powerful response is to see the truth of what happened, and take personal responsibility to change what can be changed.
