Motivational Power Quote
The Blame Game
"A man may fall many times but be won't he won't
be a failure until he says someone pushed him."
Elmer G. Letterman, author
As I see it. . . . . . . .
The blame game
If a person doesn't stumble and fall in life they are not pushing themselves or try hard enough.
At one time or another we all trip, stumble, fall and fail. Each one of them is mile markers along the side of the road and the tolls we pay on our success journey.
We would like to think about our success journey as being an expressway with no tolls. In reality our success journey is a toll road and there is a price paid to become successful. Each toll that we pay moves us closer to our goals.
Success will come as a result of being resilient and through our persistence, not in never having experienced a setback or a failure.
The only real failure in life comes in quitting and in blaming others for our conditions.
Successful people take the personal responsibility for the conditions that you find yourself in today and the responsibility to change the conditions to create the desired outcome.
Blaming others for our conditions is a total waste of time and energy. It will not have any positive results and becomes a sentence to average. Taking responsibility is the fuel to change the conditions in your life and change the results that you have been getting.
The blame game is a losing proposition that no one comes out as a winner. Take control of your life, take responsibility for your future and be willing to pay the tolls to get you the desired outcome.
