Your personal commitment to taking responsibility for your own success is the foundation of your success.Personal responsibility means using this material once you learn it. I've written this to provide you with useful information and knowledge on becoming a professional success. But, as the U.S. Steel pencils my Dad brought home from work used to say, "Knowing is not enough."When I was a kid, I was really fascinating and puzzled by these pencils. "Knowing is not enough -- what the hell does that mean?" I used to think. I spent hours struggling with that idea. I was too stubborn to ask a grown-up.When I got to Penn State, I took Philosophy 101 my freshman year. We had to read Johann von Goethe. One day, as I was plowing through an assignment, I came across this quote: "Knowing is not enough, we must do. Willing is not enough, we must apply."Boy was I glad I took that course!

That's part of personal responsibility, using your knowledge to achieve your goals.
