When things are not going well with our careers or our businesses it is easy to look outward and blame “external factors” for our lack of success.
Of course, laying the blame never solves the problem, we are simply avoiding responsibility and choosing to become victims to circumstance and other peoples choices.
When we blame we shrink, we atrophy, we become passengers in the vehicle of our lives, allowing someone else to drive us to a place that is not of our choosing.
If we want to change our businesses, then we must first prioritize personal growth (Tweet).
There is a tendency to think of ourselves as the problem, but even here you are still blaming — a person is never the problem, you are a human being full of untapped potential and limitless possibilities.
Therefore the real problem is that you have become fixated on finding problems, rather than powerfully activating your God given right to make powerful choices as a human being in any situation.
All that needs to change is your mindset — moving it from being problem-orientated to being solution-focussed.
