Take the Blame
There are many people out there who believe that they are owed something and everything and life should be handed to them on a silver platter to lead an amazing life that is bursting with wealth and success. They want all this without having to do anything for it. I want to let you in on a secret. The universe doesn’t owe any of us anything.
There is no easy way to say this so I will just say it. It is time to wake up and smell the coffee people. The chances are that if you do not already know the truth, you are not going to like it. So here is the absolute truth.
You get back what you give in other words you reap what you sow. The only person the blame for your past, your present, and your future success or failure, and even your joy or your unhappiness is the person in the mirror. That’s right it is YOU!
The person to blame for the current life you have today is that person in the mirror that you see every morning. Most of us have played the “blame game” at one time or another. In fact, I know some people that could probably win an Olympic gold medal if the “blame game” was an event.
You probably know some of them yourself and you see them every day. Their failure and lack of success is never their fault or the person who causes misery or failure for them is always someone else.
If they didn’t get that promotion it is because they did or didn’t do anything, it is probably the interviewer’s fault or someone else sucked up to management to get that position. Maybe even they blame management because they were out to get them.
Maybe these people had their car or house repossessed but it is not their fault. I mean how can they be expected to make all those payments on time? The bank is just out to ruin their lives or God himself is out to get them.
Maybe it was a relationship that didn’t work out for them but it is not their fault it is the other person’s fault. That person was just using them and they had nothing to do with the breakup.
Now I am not saying that we can control everything that happens to us. I know there are terrible crimes committed against people out there such as rape, mugging, murder, assault etc. that is committed every single day. These terrible events are completely beyond our control but those are not the things that I am referring to here.
When it is all said and done we and we alone are the reasons for our successes and our failures. It is time for you and everyone else to step up to the plate and take responsibility for your life no matter what the condition it is in currently.
