Stop the Blame Game

2/4/2009   Comment on This

I don't know about you, but I am getting tired of the blame game. It seems like people today blame everyone else for their problems: "My spouse sucks, she is possessive, and that is why do whatever," or "My kids drive me crazy so I don't go home at night," or "My boss is a total jerk and has no management style." You get the idea.

Did you ever stop and look in the mirror for a moment? Afraid of what you may see? Who took the job, married the spouse, and decided to have the kids? YOU dummy, not anyone else.

For now, we live in a democratic society that accepts divorce and job change and whatever you don't like. YOU can change it, period. Blame is a cancer and it helps people sleep at night, but it is extremely paralyzing. You can change your circumstances. If you don't like what you are doing, buck up and take the bull by the horns.

I got a kick out of an article recently that BLAMED people who lived near a highway who also had a higher percentage of obesity. So the car doesn't drive itself to the highway all the way to Pizza Hut. You know the Aladdin genie that said "Your wish is my command"? When you say "I can" or "I can't", the message that goes to the universe is "Your wish is my command." So be careful what you wish for.

Think about what you want for a change, as opposed to what you don't want or have, and things will change. It's not an easy process, but well worth it. Stop blaming the other guy. Be accountable for a change and look in the mirror. If it's not a pretty picture, blaming won't fix the problem. Only you can do that.

Is this just fluff? Let me know.
