Who’s fault is it? When we play the Blame Game, we entrench ourselves in our negative circumstances. Many times we find ourselves seeking to place the blame on others, or even on ourself. Do any of these statements sound familiar?
- You make me so mad.
- If you hadn’t said what you said, I wouldn’t have done what I did.
- I’m sorry for what I said, but ….
- My boss does not like me. So, I can never get ahead.
- If I only made more money, I could be happy.
- If I only could find that special someone, I could be happy.
See any statements that you recognize? Maybe you’ve used some of these today?
The truth is, our emotional state is under our control. No one can make us angry, keep us from being happy, or block our success, without our permission. Sorry, but it is true. You are the only one in control of your attitude, and your attitude determines your altitude.
You can choose now to forgive others and move on. You can choose now to earn success. You get to choose.
Never allow others to control you by surrendering how you feel, think, and act to them. You have the choice. You are in control of you.
Here is another shocker, you cannot control anyone but yourself.
Here’s great news, if you will see this truth and own it, you will see a difference in your life. Others will notice that difference, and OVER TIME will begin responding differently to you.
So, choose today to take responsibility for YOU. Realize that you are designed by God for a purpose that is intended to be beneficial. Focus on what you have, rather than what you don’t have. Learn to be at peace where you are, because if you can’t be at peace there you will never find peace anywhere or with anyone.
