Whenever something goes wrong people start searching for the culprit. Sometimes the culprit is found and sometimes it is not. In other cases, the culprit himself/herself knowingly/unknowingly tries to frame someone else as the culprit.
Such tendencies to blame are evident almost everywhere in our daily lives. On the other hand when something good happens people don’t mind sharing the credit irrespective of their contribution towards the accomplishment.
The truth is not simple but even simpler. The main difference between the two approaches is about finding the “person responsible” and the “responsible person”.
As a wise man, you must appoint a responsible person beforehand instead of finding the person responsible for the damage afterward. This approach is not only of great help in social scenarios but is quite effective in resolving the issues within the personal space. As individuals, we all have a big responsibility towards oneself. No Tom, Dick or Harry can share that responsibility.
Now, the million dollar question is whether you are a responsible person or the person responsible? Whatever happens to you, be it good or bad; you are always the person responsible for it. All that left to ask is “Am I responsible enough or not”.
Your dreams/goals are your responsibility. The success or failure is all about how sincerely you managed it. The ultimate responsibility if yours; not of your friend, co-worker, parents, or God. The truth is bitter but it is what it is.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
