The moment we fail, either in exam, in job, in venture, in relationship or any aspect of life, we start looking for a person or circumstances to which we can blame for our failure.
Blaming others is neither going to convert failure into success nor its going to teach lesson for the future. It’s quite possible that others might have contributed to the failure however, if we deeply analyze it, we will find that we ourselves is the major cause of failure.
The need is to develop a habit of finding fault in self instead of others. Stephen Covey in his book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has described first habit as “Be Proactive”. Focus on circle of influence. We our self is the first person in our circle of influence.
