Take The Blame
When something goes wrong, openly acknowledge it as your fault, even if you
feel there were external circumstances that contributed.
If you shift responsibility to someone or something else, you will remain stuck
in a rut because “it’s ____’s fault!”
It doesn’t matter whose fault it is. When you shift responsibility, you give up
control of the situation.
Don’t be afraid to take risks or make important decisions. Don’t be afraid to
mess up, even though it can be “scary” to take responsibility for your actions.
It’s even scarier what you may have missed by acting out of fear.
So, when there is a problem, don’t ask yourself who is to blame. Instead, ask
yourself: “What could I have done differently?”
This shifts the focus onto your control of the situation instead of feeling
like a victim.
