Failing through no fault of your own

“Blame is a sort of comfort food for the soul. It diverts us from the effort of owning responsibility.” _Henry Cloud


Beware of jumping on the “It’s not my fault” or “It’s not my responsibility” band wagon.

Like a couple couple of aspirins and a nap, it may make you feel better temporarily, but it may not be solving the real issue.

The moment you embrace “It’s not your fault” or “It’s not your responsibility” you give up control and you put your future in the hands of whosever’s fault and responsibility it is.

Better to ask yourself, “What part of the results is my fault and my responsibility?”

A better future starts there–for you can do something about that.
