Sometimes we just want to take the easy way out and blame others.
Many of us are guilty of this. Remember that goal that you failed to achieve? The one about losing weight? Yeah? What did you blame? I am sure you blamed the weather for being too hot to exercise or work for making you feel so tired that you cannot exercise. We did something wrong and we take the easy way out and put the blame on someone or something else like the environment, not having enough supplies or that intern but instead, the one who should be blamed is yourself.
We do not to want to take responsibility for our own failures because it is tough. It is tough to see ourselves as a failure who can never achieve what we set out to do and it is so much easier to blame someone or something else. However, we need to wake up and realise that most of the time, it is our fault for not accomplishing a goal.
It is our fault that we procrastinate. It is our fault that we felt lazy and stayed in bed. It is our fault to think that ‘later’ would be a better time to do it. So, start realising that as difficult as it may be to accept, most of the time, it is our fault.
We can do something about it and that to finally achieve that goal that we have always wanted, the first step is to accept being at fault.
