“Responsibilities gravitate to the person who can shoulder them.”
Tom Stoppard, British dramatist
Translation for Adults
The idea of “being responsible” or “accepting responsibility” often has a negative connotation. In reality, it is quite the opposite. To achieve great success, you must be willing to take on great responsibility. Arguably, one of the most rewarding experiences is parenthood. By no means is that an easy task! It requires a tremendous amount of work and dedication. It is also tremendously gratifying. Ask any parent, and they will certainly agree that it is an amazing experience—and responsibility. Many of your greatest opportunities will also be your greatest challenges. You must be willing to step forward, and accept them!
Translation for Kids
Some people don’t want to be responsible. They think it is too much work. They think life is easier without responsibilities. They are wrong. You want to be a great person. You want to be a Black Belt. You must be responsible. Come to class every week. Practice every day. Study and do your homework on time. You will be a great student, too. The most successful people in the
world are responsible. They want the hard work. They want to test their self-discipline. That is why they succeed. Don’t avoid your responsibilities. Step forward, and meet them head-on.
