"A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame somebody else."
"We generate our own environment. We get exactly what we deserve. How can we resent a life we've created ourselves? Who's to blame, who's to credit but us? Who can change it, anytime we wish, but us?"
"Blame does not resolve an issue, it only prolongs the problem."
"If you give power to negative events, you are the one to blame. Circumstances and events have no power at all unless we give power to them."
Catherine Pulsifer, The Quality of Your Thoughts
"No shade tree?
Blame not the sun, but yourself."
"We all make errors, we can all find fault, but the how we move forward is the most important thing."
"I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime."
"The next time blame threatens to sneak up on you, try a compliment instead of a rebuke, encouragement rather than a black eye. Offer praise in lieu of a lawsuit. Instead of muttering and complaining, offer a clear, easily received, constructive solution."
Milton Katselas, Dreams into Action, Getting what you want!
"You'll find that life will be a lot easier and much more fun when you make the decision to drop your complaining. All it does is make you feel sorry for yourself - sad, angry, victimized, suspicious and/or self-righteous."
Richard Carlson, Ph.D., Don't Worry, Make Money
"Blame may be the only excuse available to convince yourself that you did no wrong."
"We do, in fact, control our own stress. So, if you are feeling "stressed out", you are responsible for creating that feeling.
