When things go wrong and it seems that everything is not working out the way you want it to be, do you find someone else to blame?
Do you find yourself looking at your friends life especially when you see their status updates and you ask yourself, why are they having a good time with their life and I am not?
I used to feel the same way too .
Most of the time, I would blame my husband for not working so hard in our MLM business so that we could earn more and he can provide a better life.
I just felt in my mind and in my heart that I deserved more but I also knew deep within that it’s not just my husband’s responsibility to work hard in our business but I also have to take my share in doing what I can do to build our MLM business.
Its just that whenever I get frustrated with the results, I tend to look at my husband’s shortcomings and blame him for everything.
Let me share with you this wonderful story told about a man who is out walking one night and comes upon another man down on his knees looking for something under a streetlamp. The passerby inquires as to what the other man is looking for. He answers that he is looking for his lost key. The passerby offers to help and gets down on his knees and helps him search for the key. After an hour of fruitless searching, he says, “We’ve looked everywhere for it and we haven’t found it. Are you sure that you lost it here?” The other man replies, “No, I lost it in my house, but there is more light out here under the streetlamp.”
When I read about this story, I felt so ashamed of myself realising that I am so guilty for blaming other people especially my husband when I should be taking full responsibility in creating the life that I want.
I made an agreement with myself that it was time for me to stop looking outside of myself for the answers to why I haven’t created the life and results that I want, for it is only me who can create the quality of the life I want to lead and the results I want to produce.
So take this as a valuable lesson that I learned from Jack Canfield in his book, The Success Principles, that you should take 100% responsibility for your life. You—no one else!
To achieve major success in life—to achieve those things that are most important to you—you must assume 100% responsibility for your life. Nothing less will do.
