Too many people are quick to blame others when things do not go their way. If you fall into this habit, you are living in a “negative past”. You are also (perhaps inadvertently) saying that you have no control over your life or actions.
When you live in a negative state, or your live in the past, it is hard to escape from it. And when you cannot escape from it, it becomes your reality. True role models do not avoid problems. They accept responsibility, take control of a situation and move forward.
This does not mean that everything will be perfect when you accept responsibility of a situation. As with any choice in life, it will be 50 / 50 on whether it goes your way. But, if you remain optimistic, yet realistic that situations will become better, they often will. This now becomes your new reality. This is a great example to set for your children, family, friends and co-workers on the benefits of accepting responsibility.
