Blaming is toxic. It is easier for us to blame people than to blame ourselves for what is going on in our lives. No matter what you are going through, no matter where you are in life, don’t blame anyone, embrace it. Love it.

Blaming people for your actions is an ineffective way of dealing with your situation. Remember, your situation is unique to you. Your challenges and problems are unique to you, so embrace them.

Blaming is toxic, because it is dangerous to your health, to your creative mind, and to your future happiness. Blaming yourself or people steals your happiness away. It makes you think you are a victim of circumstances. Blaming prevents you from taking full control of your life. It renders you powerless. Remember, you are the only person who can change your situation- the way you think, the way you treat people, the way you treat yourself. You can control your life by controlling how you think, and what you think about.

If you really want to focus on making yourself and your life better, you must stop blaming yourself and others for your problems. They are your problems, no one else’s. Instead of blaming, start challenging yourself to do better, live better, and to love better. Start taking responsibility to make your life a livable one.

When you take responsibility for your actions, it makes you feel better about yourself. It gives you the opportunity to act and change your life. Blaming makes things worse for you, responsibility makes things better for you.

If you want things to get better for you, start taking responsibility for your own actions.

When people talk, listen completely

Group of People in Conference Room

“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.”- Ernest Hemingway

When someone is talking to you, listen to the person. He or she has something important to share with you. It could be the breakthrough that you have been waiting for. Don’t ignore or pretend to be listening when people are sharing something with you. If you listen, you will learn a lot about yourself and the person talking. If you don’t listen, you are telling the person that you are not interested in what he or she is saying. You know everything. He or she is not relevant to you. You don’t need help. You do.

Listen to learn, not to talk.
