it is not a story: it should be the way of life!

Authors B.J. Gallagher and Steve Ventura wrote a great little book about achieving success through personal accountability titled: Who Are "They" Anyway?
 
According to Gallagher and Ventura, the most important words of personal responsibility are as follows:
 
The 10 most important words           :  I won't wait for others to take the first step.
The 9 most important words             :   If it is to be, it's up to me.
The 8 most important words             :   If not me, who? If not now, when?
The 7 most important words             :   Let me take a shot at it.
The 6 most important words             :   I will not pass the buck.
The 5 most important words             :  You can count on me.
The 4 most important words             :   It is my job!
The 3 most important words             :   Just do it!
The 2 most important words             :   I will.
The ONE most important word        :   Me.
