Actually I understand the truth behind the "you are the one constant
factor..." statement. In fact, the first time I heard it, it gave me
the intended jolt. If it helps motivate some people, I'm for it. But
it's an emotional truth, not a literal truth. If you believe in
critical thinking you will look deeper.

Accepting responsibility for everything is a slippery slope. It is
commendable to recognize where you are responsible. But once you get in
the habit of accepting responsibility for everything, you risk losing
the ability to think critically and form good judgments about the
people and things around you.

Sometimes you are responsible, sometimes someone else is responsible. A
professional knows how to tell the difference.

FYI,I knew it rang a bell, but now I think I recognize where this "100%
responsible" and "You are the one factor..." language comes from. As
far as I know, it comes from the human potential movement (think Werner
Erhard and EST, Lifespring, Tony Robbins and NLP, etc...).
