Dream Derailer #7: Wasting Energy Blaming Others

Who’s Fault Is It?

Who is to blame for your lack of success, your mother, father, wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, sister, brother, friend, boss, children, the government…?  There is a never-ending list of people to blame if you’re looking for a scapegoat.  Just remember that blaming takes energy, energy that is put to better use making your dreams come true.

Take the Credit and the Criticism

When you succeed you will take the credit and when you fail that is also your honor.  If you want to be successful and keep on track and not get derailed, you must be responsible.  The only person that stands between and your dream is you. You may think that other people are blocking your way, but they only have the power that you give them.   The buck stops with you!  If you believe that the actions of others have the power to prevent you from succeeding, then your belief gives them that power and makes the statement true.  However if you believe that nothing can stop you, you will find a way around any obstacles you encounter and become stronger in the process.
