“If people spent the same amount of time finding answers to problems as they do trying to find somebody to blame for problems, the world would be a better place.” ~Politics
The blame game is not a game positive people play because positive people take responsibility for their actions and the actions that are conducted on their behalf.
Positive people do not blame their parents, sisters, brothers or any other member of their family or extended family for how their life turned out, they understand that they became who they are all by themselves.
Positive people do not blame the government for their woes because they look around and see other people have been successful and they operate in the same environment.
Positive people do not blame the people who offer them advice if the advice leads to failure because they had the final say on what decisions they made.
Positive managers do not blame the people under them if things go wrong because they understand it’s their responsibility to ensure everybody working for them has everything they need to complete their tasks successfully; not once but every time.
Cause and effect is real for positive people; they understand that every action they take will impact on their future in some way, therefore they make decisions based on long-term results rather than short-term gains.
Positive people understand that every action and inaction has a consequence for them. They know that if somebody asks them for their opinion on a topic that impacts on them, and they tell that person what they want to hear instead of how they really feel; they have to take full responsibility for their actions too.
The following quote by Dr Seuss accurately describes the advice positive people follow;
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide what to do.” ~Dr Seuss
