The next time you experience a failure, think about why you failed instead of whom you can blame.
Taking responsibility for your mistakes and failures are the first steps of doing better next time.
Analyzing your failure will help you grow.
Here are some questions you might want to ask yourself..
Can I learn from this failure?
Can I turn this failure into a success?
Has anyone else failed this way before?
Did I fail because of me?
Did I set unrealistic goals?
Did I succeed as well as fail?
Can I teach others from what I have just learned, to keep them from failing?
Can I be grateful for this experience?
Where can I go from here?
If you blame others for your failures, and do not take responsibility it will insure you to remain a victim. By blaming others you will find yourself moving from problem to problem-from blame to blame, and it will be very hard for you to achieve the goals and the success you are looking to achieve.
It may seem difficult and unfair, but if you take responsibility for everything in your life, you claim the power to change it.
