The Blame Game

“Everytime you point a finger at someone else, remember there are two fingers pointing back at you”.

I’d heard that many times before but this time it really got me thinking. We always seem to point the finger, become the victim, and play the blame game. It’s so easy to ascribe failure and frustration to the situations and people around us. It’s clear that often we are our own worst enemies.

The people around me and the situations I am faced with are beyond my control – but the one thing I can control is my own consciousness and reaction to these things. Therefore, a much more progressive path in life is to focus on myself, rather than blaming everything around me. That way there is greater scope for improvement and progression.

I can treat every situation and every interaction as another opportunity to refine and fine tune my own character. In this way, life’s obstacles (which previously we would complain about and blame for our failure), become life’s opportunities (since they allow us to grow and improve).
