Although accepting personal responsibility is important, remembering that there is a balance to personal responsibility is equally important. According to Garraway (1997), (to accept personal responsibility, we need to learn how to fail successfully. Don't go too far the other direction, however, and accept too much responsibility for actions. Accept appropriate responsibility for outcomes in your life. We should remember is that we cannot teach responsibility without predictability. Do what you say you will do. If you do not, people will start to ignore what you say. This applies to the work place as well as home.” (37). If someone does not accept responsibility for the situations they can control, they will set themselves up for failure. On the other hand, if they try to accept responsibility for the circumstances that are out of their control, they are setting themselves up for failure as......

...The more franchisees you contact the better as the first one you contact may not be typical of the whole network. In addition you should seek advice from a franchise consultant or accountant who is experienced in franchising as they have generally accumulated a wealth of knowledge about the financial performance of different sorts of franchise systems. Ideally they will have an outline of a franchise financial model, which will enable you to draw up your own budget and business plan. This would ensure that you were aware of the commercial viability of the franchise and would certainly impress the franchisor if you went back to them with your own financial plan. 8. Can I afford this franchise? Talk with an accountant, suggests Grant Garraway of The Franchise Shop . They may generally be crusty old individuals but they are about to become your best friend. If you cannot do this yourself have them build you a profit and loss spreadsheet model that allows you to change the key numbers. Then you can understand what happens if interest rates go up. You can look at how much could the sales go down by for the business to still be OK. How much money can you borrow? That will depend on the value of the assets you can offer as security, generally your home, and what repayments the business profits will allow you to make.

...life. Money, Power and Daisy and he does not seem to care at what cost he obtains his wishes. We can see his true self when he is reunited with Daisy. Major Point: Daisy has a strong desire to have money and she hides her feeling for Gatsby as she refused to leave her lifestyle. Evidence: Even though Daisy loved Gatsby, her greed does not allow her to follow her heart. Instead she married Tom who offered the status that she needed. Elaboration: Daisy is cheated on and does not feel loved by Tom, but this does not convince her to leave her situation, even when Gatsby presents himself and asks her to tell Tom she loves him, she refuses to do so after learning of Gatsby’s ill gotten ways of obtaining his wealth. Major Point: Nick Garraway does not reveal anything of himself; he spends the entire story focusing on the life of others. Evidence: Nick is constantly thinking about Nick, Daisy or Tom. We never truly understand Nick or what he wants for himself. Even when we almost get a glimpse into him, he abandons that possibility. Elaboration: Nick was almost in a relationship with Cathy, but he ends this abruptly, indicating that he does not want to be with her as he does not trust her. In reality it seems that he simply doesn’t want to have his feelings exposed hiding behind his own mask. ______________________________________________________________________________________ Introductory paragraph During the 1920’s there was a great deal of greed and the......
