"The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny." — Dr. Albert Ellis
Blame robs us of our power, taking it from us and giving it to those we blame. It also robs us of happiness, for how can we be happy when we are always being victimized? The real secret to living the best life possible is in knowing that everything that happens is our choice, and that we have drawn it to us as a way of learning and becoming stronger, surer, self-actualized beings.
If you've tired of the blame game and ready to start living your best life now, the next time a problem occurs, instead of asking "Who's fault is this?" start asking, "Why did I choose this?" "What lesson does this hold for me?" and "Where is the blessing in this?"
Don't worry, the answers will come. Getting questions answered is one of the perks of being in power.
"May you always be quicker to ask than to blame."
