Peace and joy

When you think everything is someone else’s fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself you will learn both peace and joy.

Look in the mirror

You are your only scapegoat.

You are your supervisor, your mentor, your scholar, you are responsible for what happens in your life and you should not dare to hold someone else responsible for that!

Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.

Blame

The superior man blames himself. The inferior man blames others.

Don Shula

Something went wrong? Better look for a scapegoat right?

Wrong!

You either take responsibility and fix it or at least you try to help fixing it. 

Who cares who is to blame? Problems are not solved by finding fault, they are solved by being fixed.

Looking for a scapegoat?

Don’t find fault, find a remedy.

Henry Ford

Why waste time on finding out who’s fault it is? Better use your time wisely and help finding a solution to a problem.

Don’t look for scapegoats

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

Chinese Proverb

When something goes wrong you should not start looking for someone to blame. Think about what you could have done or can do in the future to  prevent sucht things.

It is not worth anything to have someone to blame if it does not provide a solution. Don’t be the hater, instead be the one who observes and comes up with some ideas to be better next time. Take the high road!
