To me the biggest key to consistency, determination and Incredible Success is starting today rather than putting it off to another day. Start today and stick with it and you will succeed.

I love the points yi used to back up the question. I just think education can be used to correct some mindset of responsibility.

Finding out who you are, accepting who you are, and loving who you are is important for consistency, determination, and success. Knowing that you are in it together with you is as imporatant as being in it together with others. Two things I like to think. 1. If I lost everything and everyone I will be happy with being with me. 2. True love is like an old married couple sitting together, nothing being said but both of them knowing they love each other and accept each other.

Consistency and determination are truly important because without it, we can not fulfil anything to our satisfaction.
Also about the abused being the abusers is true. Because one will abuse others just so that they sooth the pain they felt when they too were abused

On the other hand, people who were abused can be protectors and shield others from abuse.

The topic takks more on the importance of consistent effort over quick fixes or bursts of motivation. This aligns with the idea of building habits for long-term success.

I think being aware of the abuse and not replicating it is an example of self-responsibility. I was physically abused by a relative when I was 7 years old. But I've always vowed to myself that I will never do that to another person. Interestingly, as an adult, I've been in 2 abusive relationships where once again I was the abusee, but the moment it happened, I walked out. To this day I've never physically abused a partner, and I never will.

"Many humans aren't in a cooperative healthy loving relationship with the family closest to them; that family being the older and younger versions of the human they see in the mirror."

This is true, especially for the younger versions. It ties in with self-responsibility. People who are ashamed of what they did/didn't do in the past look for excuses which mostly involve other people - parents, spouse, teachers, etc. Your framework of reference may have been flawed but the choices were yours. You can't go back and change it. Love the human who survived!

I agree that the abused often become the abuser. Sometimes, because that is all that they have ever known. However, some abusers never have been abused and just are that way.

First of all, I think that determination is the most important thing. If you are determined to succeed with something, chances are that you will. Consistency is next. You must be consistent in your everyday tasks and responsibilities.

People usually learn how to behave, learn about what is right and wrong from their families. They bring and apply these behaviors with other people they associate with. Behavior becomes “unacceptable” in different surroundings and groups of people with different norms. Hence, their consistency, and determination may need modification in order to succeed in a different environment.

Freedom means happily being and accepting yourself as you are and others as they are. Freedom means choosing who to associate with so that you have a happy life.
