Take Responsibility for yourself.

Watching "Everybody Loves Raymond" there was another instance of Robert that frustrated me.

Robert: "C'mon, are you going to tell me luck hasn't played a part in your life?"
Ray: Why do you think I'm more lucky than you?
Robert: Look at me. I'm eating Balogna and Orange Juice.

But the situation is that Ray just gave Robert a thousand dollars and with it Robert planned to go to Vegas and blow it all.

Luck plays a part in all of our lives, and we all have good and bad luck, however, it's what we do with the chances that we are given that makes the difference. Ray was giving Robert a chance to help himself with a thousand dollars. Robert does not take the responsibility, he's squandering another chance that's thrown at him.

Pay attention to the things that happen to you, be aware of the chances that you have, and take advantage of them. Don't splurge until your finances are in order, otherwise, you're just digging yourself into a hole.
