The phrase "with great power comes great responsibility" is perhaps overused, but it is accurate. A corollary of this is that giving up responsibility gives up power. Act with integrity, make sure your being, speaking, and doing are always in alignment. Without this, you aren’t just forfeiting your own responsibility, you are giving up your power. Whatever you want to accomplish while you’re alive, whether it is big or small, you are making it a million times tougher on yourself if you decide to give this away. Be responsible or give up power. Everyone has power to use, how you use it is up to you.
