Use Your Treasures for the benefit of Others !!

Responsibility is to honor the role that has been entrusted and to perform it to the best of one's ability. 

Just as the actor accepts whatever role he is given and performs to the best of his ability, in the same way taking up responsibility for one's life is to accept and honor the role so that the performance is the best under all circumstances. The result is that time and resources are utilized to bring maximum benefit. Each day remind yourself that you are a good actor who brings out the best of whatever role you get. Instead of thinking of what you don't have start using in the best possible way what you have.

Build the power of tolerance through Self-Respect !

Tolerance is to be in your stage of self-respect. 

When there is appreciation for the self there will be self-respect. And where there is true self-respect there will be no ego or arrogance of the special qualities in oneself. Think of one aspect in yourself which you consider your special quality. Make the practice of reminding yourself of this speciality. When you increase your self-respect in this way based on your speciality, you'll find your power of tolerance increasing too.

Positive Morning Note !!

The one who is responsible is the one who is satisfied. 

When responsibility is taken up and fulfilled with commitment, there is efficiency and effectiveness in the work. This results in satisfaction and contentment at having made a significant contribution. Each day take up the responsibility of contributing something significant to any task. When you continue this you will find that you are content with whatever you are doing.

Blend Your Qualities With Others !

You can fulfill your responsibilities well when you work in coordination with others. 

Responsibilities can be fulfilled well when there is the recognition that each one can contribute something to the task. It is also essential to create a cooperative rather than a competitive environment. Then there would be no feeling of superiority or inferiority in anyone. When you are responsible to complete some task, involve all the people who can you help in it. When you do this you will find your task finishing faster. Also you would find that you would get the good wishes of all the people involved in the task.

Nuture The Fruit Within Yourself !

Thoughts, created by the mind, are the seeds of actions and experience (which are the fruits). When there is the desire for a pure and positive experience, along with the realization of the importance of the quality of thought, then naturally those seeds will be selected which will bear the desired positive fruit. 

The desire may be for peace, knowledge, contentment, love, power, joy; anyone of a number of positive experiences may be relished (enjoyed). And of course, there will then be the aim to control or eradicate those thoughts and “sanskaras” which are the seeds of disharmony and peacelessness. The faculty (power) of the soul by which it can select its desired thoughts and emotions to get the desired experience is the intellect.
