How many of us play the “BLAME GAME?” When something goes wrong, do you immediately look for someone to blame? I know I have in the past, as I my insecurity forced me to immediately look at someone else, so I could shift any responsibility off me. When we immediately turn to the “blame game,” we also turn off our ability to learn! We all need to value learning more so we don’t feel the need to blame. Even when we are totally at fault, there is SO much to learn.
Albert Einstein said is well…”LEARN from yesterday, LIVE today and HOPE for tomorrow!”
Proverbs 23:18 (NIV)
18 There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
So, What… for This Week?
Change your thinking from the blame game to learning. Instead of asking, “Who’s to blame?”, change your question to, “What am I responsible for and how can I learn from this situation?” Stop looking at conflict as failure. Thomas Edison said, “It took 1000 failures to invent the light bulb and each failure contributed to success!”
